It has been a few weeks since I posted a Links I Love post. Partly, because I have been using my blog time to actually blog. Which means I am behind on reading and commenting on many of my favorite blogs. But my energy is coming back and I am able to sneak that time in here and there more often. Another reason is our addiction to Prison Break...it is sucking us in at night. Anyways, here are a few posts that I have read in the last week or so that I found ....I don't know. I don't want to say I liked them in case you don't. I don't want to say I totally agree with them because I do like to do crafts but I don't consider myself THAT mom. And I don't aim for perfection AT ALL but it is a good reminder to not let moments where you inspire for perfection to keep you from enjoying life. And the last link is something I am going to be putting some effort into. I have realized in the last month that I have gotten into a bad habit of bribe/threat/warn warn warn - react from the gut parenting. And the change has to start with me...slowing down, realizing life is good, that there is no rush or pressure to get out the door, listening, pausing, giving myself time to react from the head and not the gut. Etc. More on that later.
