As I was nursing the baby in the uncommon quietness of my house, my Nugget girl napping at the other end of the couch, I glanced at our Christmas tree. No ornaments on it yet, just the lights.
I thought about two years ago at this time, when I was trying to hang the ornaments with baby Nuggie sitting contentedly in her bunny chair. I was super nervous that I wouldn't be able to get them all put up without having to stop and tend to her. I hated to start something and not be able to finish it all at one time.
One of the first times I began to learn how to just "let it go".
How the times have changed! I laugh back on those days, as I now have another little baby two years later...in addition to that mischievous toddler running rampant. Although I still get frustrated when I can't get a task done in one day, I've definitely learned to just go with it. I'd be the death of myself if I didn't.
And that's the other thing...actually getting those ornaments up this year. In a semi-orderly fashion. I know I'll have interruptions. And those ornaments so carefully put on the tree by a certain toddler will definitely NOT be to her mama's liking. So I'll learn to let go once again ~ for the sake of a Christmas memory.
