Fitting into these days
At ages 15 and almost 13, the girls have active social calendars. Which is good. And exhausting. Sometimes we say no but usually we say yes.
The busy-ness of it all has been building. And I try to stay in the present. Try to be right here, right now and not worry/plan/think/dwell on what comes next. I don't always succeed but I try. I look out the window and see my kids when they don't know I'm watching. When did she get so tall that she can jump and reach the limb? When did she become such an animated story teller among friends? Well, lookie there, they can discuss something and work it out by themselves.
Until then, there is dinner around the kitchen table. I can always count on that.
