Some of the best motherly words anyone has spoken to me: Dont worry about busy bodies who can’t sit still at mealtime or if they need a toy to play with. They won’t be this way when they’re twenty so there’s no sense in worrying about it when their two. Remember their age in the here & now.
I’m learning every day from a busy little about worrying less what others think. To realize mealtime is about bonding, sharing the day & being intentional. He is a toddler not a teen. Everyday I’m learning about letting him be little. About laughing more than ruling. About love.
In these moments he is happy, eating, dreaming, loving & so kind.
