Mother Guilt

Today was a rough morning. No big reason, just one of those days where I don’t feel like I understand what’s going on around me. Kids screaming. Laundry. Dishes. Packing. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had a morning like this…

Anyway, after lunch there were some things I just had to do and I wasn’t able to play with the girls like I usually would. At first they were kind of fussy, and then Elizabeth told me she was “out of ideas”. I kept on cleaning up and doing laundry and then I noticed that something had happened. They started playing with each other! Charlotte loves to go out on the balcony here at my sister’s apartment and Elizabeth started running out there and jumping close to her. All I heard was the giggling! See what happens if I can just let go of my guilt of not engaging and interacting with them constantly and just let them play?!?! They had a great time!

It is the best reward of all to see the two of them having so much fun together as sisters. Here is the video of our sweet girls. Charlotte was laughing so hard that she had fallen over and I think she couldn’t stop laughing to get up.
