Learn to be Peaceful

I remember a quote I used to have on the wall when the kids were young: “Babies need peace more than sleep. So don’t struggle over sleep, just learn to be peaceful together”.

In these first days of summer, I am learning to let go of routine, to trust my children to listen to their bodies and doze when they need to… just as Janelle nodded off in the middle of outside storytime yesterday!

I am also putting a focus on some much needed “down time” this summer – starting with my new *free* recliner! Yah! This is the coziest spot to curl up with a cup of afternoon tea, or some of my wonderful children…
