Note to Self


Be sure to make the time, because otherwise it will get taken with everything else.

Nothing on Facebook is as interesting as what your child just discovered in the backyard.

The to-do list will still be there after you watch the amazing cartwheel that you've just got. to. see.

In 10 years you'll have no idea what was more important than snuggling through another book with your toddler.

Your kids are growing faster than your Twitter or Pinterest following, but who gets more attention?

There's always tomorrow, for getting the rest of that stuff done. Fifteen minutes of eye contact and real conversation won't neglect anything that matters.

Yes the calendar is bulging at the seams, but your 8 year old has so much to say before they turn 9, and then 10, and 11, and 12. Don't miss it.

No YouTube video can compare to the antics you can observe in your kitchen each day if you stop and watch.

Need some stress relief? Get your eyes off the laundry and onto the wearers of it. How can you not smile?

And the list goes on. 

What would you add in your note to self?

Especially this busy Christmas - end of year - New Year's time, what priorities do you need to re-establish?
