I have accepted that I just maaaay not finish some of my Christmas deadlines....and I'm OKAY with that!
Without getting into all the 'drama,'---life around school this past week has been more mentally and emotionally draining than ever, and.......I've found myself reprioritizing certain aspects of my life.
Thursday evening, I left EVERYTHING AT SCHOOL and said...."NOPE! Tonight, I'm making gingerbread houses with the kids!"
That is EXACTLY what we did.....
Caitlyn's class made gingerbread houses on Tuesday, but she was home sick and with an ear infection. She was sooooo bummmmmed! So, I asked her teacher if we could work something out, even if it meant she sent supplies home with Caitlyn so that I could help her make one at home.
Not only did her teacher send supplies for Caitlyn, but she also sent enough supplies for ALL the girls to make one!!! How absolutely considerate!!! She didn't need to do that, and the fact that she did just reiterates the amazing staff of teachers we have in our District. THANK YOU TIFFANY!!!!
The night turned in to a family memory because we ALL were involved; even DH. THESE are the memories I want to remember and have the girls remember; NOT that mom was locked down in her sewing dungeon frantically trying to meet deadlines; NOT that mom was secluded to the dinner table preparing for tests and grading papers (although, SOME of that still needs to happen).
So....Happy sewing. Happy family. Happy Saturday to you all.
