One of the things I love most about parenthood, is how it teaches us to slow down and enjoy the little things. Before kids, the idea of Cookies & Coffee in the park would have put me to sleep!
But now, just 5 minutes of fresh & air and quite while I sip my coffee is considered to be “the best day ever”. Especially when you can get through a full coffee before it goes cold.
We went for a Cookies & Coffee date the other week at a park with the boys. I sat with Bowie sipping my drink while Phil played with Levi on the playground. It wasn’t a huge outing, and we probably spent less then $10 but it was one of my favorite days yet.
If I can pass on any kind of advice to parents, or parents to be it’s
enjoy the little things.
