Looking Back With No Regrets As A MotherBeth Anne Ballance
Two more days full of puzzles and diaper-changing and playing monster trucks. Two more days to bundle up and head to the park and run errands and steam clean the carpets because this may be the only chance I get until a few holidays in the spring.
Sometimes I think that’s the hardest part of the new year – going from a break spent with family to knowing that it’s an office with nothing but cold outside for the next few months.
But mommas, we can do this. We’re already seeing the days getting longer and we have Christmas memories stored up to last us at least until February. Not to mention goals and resolutions to make and at least attempt to keep.
I have spent this holiday break well. With the exception of this morning, tapping out six (six!) Babble posts in just a few hours, I have spent it on mild “blogging break” in order to soak up time with my kiddo. Heading back to work on Wednesday, I will have no regrets as to how I spent the week with Harry and how much fun we had together.
I think that’s the best way to walk away from time at home, don’t you?
So I’m signing off of the Babble dashboard, going to wipe a nose, and sit on the floor with a puzzle and my three-year-old.
I wish you the very best last day of 2012. Let’s look back with no regrets.
