Hurry Up and Slow Down

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.
