Seven weeks, really?
Found this at the Aldi. A little something to keep the kids busy. Go get it! Also might be the only beach you’re seeing for a while.
We make up all these “boxes” that “need” to be checked. But do we really think through why we are doing what we are doing?
Maybe we don’t need to take ourselves so seriously.
When I stop to take a good look at my “boxes” I sometimes see where I am putting all this pressure on myself over some stuff that doesn’t really matter.
Just saying, take a minute to check your boxes. You might end up having a better day.
What having a kid with cancer taught me is, well, a lot of things. But one currently useful thing is this: a crises will pass.

But the crises itself WILL pass.

From a mom who has taught in the classroom and homeschooled a cancer patient: parents, be gentle with yourselves.
Make a schedule. Realize you probably won’t stick to it perfectly. Take breaks. Compliment successes more than criticizing failures. Yours too. One thing at a time. Do something fun.
