No, in case you were wondering, my floors haven't been cleaned in a while. Dusting? Ditto. Laundry? It'll get folded some day. Just not this day. This day was my day to enjoy all of the things I love about being a mother - and they don't include dirt and dust and laundry. They include watching my boys run free on a beautiful, but chilly, sunny day (Yes, that's Finny wearing his winter coat and toque it was so cold out today!). They include giving my boys the opportunities to explore the beautiful things in this world, like Meeting Place Organic Farm where we enjoyed the afternoon touring the farm, learning that eggs don't just magically appear in the grocery store, getting up close and personal with some very friendly pigs, and buying their favourite apple butter directly from the hands that made it! It means so much to me to have this time with my kids for I know that dust will always be a part of my life, and I suspect that I will always be clawing my way through mountains of laundry, but these are the moments that won't last forever and I intend to soak up every one of them that I can! Happy Mother's Day!
