:the one where i claim my mama mantra:

today i will answer the first time they call my name.
today i will not say in just a minute.
today i will say yes more than i say no.
today i will sit in the floor more than i stand in the kitchen.
today i will create with my children.
today i will tell that story they love to hear over and over again.
today i will read extra books.

today i will snuggle longer.
today i will not be bothered with laundry.
today i will chase them around the house.

today i will tickle them until their cheeks turn red.
today i will instigate a pillow fight.
today i will play hide and seek.
today i will make memories. 

what will you do with your day?
