I think one of the ways you officially know that you are a mom is by judging/questioning/over thinking every single thing you do. I remember when Gavin was first born, one of my friends without kids made a comment about not wanting to change poopy diapers. I told her that I LOVED poopy diapers, it was like the one thing that had a clear solution.
Lately it has been feeling like one of those very cut and dry parenting moments, only way better than a poopy diaper!.
It is the one time of day in our busy lives when all four of us really look at each other. Really talk to each other. Really get a sense of how everyone is doing.
Nathan and I leave our phones on the counter. Texts have to wait, emails have to wait, phone calls have to wait.
We ask Gavin how his day was, and we listen to Quinn tell us that we are a butterfly and a cow. (For the record, I’m the butterfly.)
And it really makes me feel like of all the decisions I made as a parent throughout the day, at least I am making that one right. Giving my kids a nutritious meal with a side of quality family time and good parental attention.
