I decided a few days ago, that lists... well, to do lists are just being thrown out the window. I can't handle them anymore. You know, you cross one thing off, and add two more things. They are started on one paper and then you can't find that paper, so you start another on a different sheet of paper... and then you find your old list... and so the vicious cycle continues, until you have five lists in front of you, instead of just one. I've started compartmentalizing... I do what NEEDS to be done, and toss all the other stuff out. There's absolutely no reason for me to feel terrible about not getting something done... there's too much playing to be had with my littles, and that takes full priority. I'd rather look back on my day remembering that I pushed the kids on their swing/rope swing, and laughed over the fact that Finn ate dirt (and seemed to like the taste)/. I want to remember the smell of the kids after playing outside all day, and how knotty their hair was. I want to remember all the dirt stains that accumulated over time, that each wash couldn't get rid of. I want to remember all the strawberries that never made it inside, because we were too busy picking and eating right then and there in the garden. I want to remember how dirty the tub water was... the dirtier, the better the day.
