I'm working on being a better mom in the little things... like saying "Yes!" instead of "later", or "maybe", or "we'll see". i.e: "Mom, can you read me this book?" (in the middle of the day --I'm a big bedtime book reader, but while I'm trying to do dishes?) "Sure, sweety." -- "Mom, you said we could face paint! Can we now?" "OK, now's as good a time as any." --"Tag! You're it - now you chase me!" (just do it -it's good exercise.) I'm just trying to enjoy all these little moments that are all too fleeting ...someday they'll be grown & gone ...& I'll still have dirty dishes.
