Oh lucky you! I am on holiday break with my kids for the next week and a half, so brief with today’s entry, I shall be.

So, from this momma who has literally seen her 4 children’s feet grow in front of her eyes: Be still for a moment. Breathe in the family celebrations, as well as the normal events: your child falling asleep in your arms, eating cereal, coloring, blabbing in the backseat of the car, telling you about their school day…You get it. Relish in it.
