children don’t keep

Websites and emails can wait ’til tomorrow
For children grow up, we’ve learned to our sorrow
So quiet down projects,
Phone, go to sleep,
I’m enjoying my children
And children don’t keep.


This is something my husband challenged me on recently… that my schedule is becoming unhealthy and peace-stealing for myself, for the kids, and the effects reach him too of course. He is 100% right. My good intentions and spur of the moment decisions are not in line with what I say are my priorities. Sigh. Back to the schedule making and routine following (on monday of course, all new things must begin on mondays). 🙂

    Agreed… that’s why blogging has been so low on my list. Too busy enjoying the precious time I have with my kids!
