I’ve been trying to not be in a hurry lately. Hurry up and get in the car. Hurry up and pick up the toys. Hurry up and get supper ready. It’s hard, but it’s been less stressful. I prepare to leave the house earlier. I give Ayla extra time. Sometimes I just sit and wait for her to finish her craft. When she asks me to read her a book, I go and sit and read. The chores pile up. The precious time reading to her does, too. That’s what matters more.
