“I have this theory that people make an implicit decision as to whether they’re going to stay young and curious and interesting and interested, or whether they’re just going to let themselves age.”*
Call me “Motto Mom.” Maybe mottos would roll off my tongue even if I didn’t have triplets, but mottos have allowed me to live in the moment. One of them is, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” If it’s a snow day, and there is NO WAY I’m going to get any work done, I allow myself to enjoy the found time. Guess where you’ll find my kids, their friends and me? Outside playing because 1) living on a hill makes us the “Sledding House,” 2) you’re never to old to play, and 3) there’s always hot chocolate and marshmallows afterward!
You know what else I’m good for, besides serving snacks and hot drinks? Videoing the shenanigans. Except when I decide to video the “sled train” head on! Ahhh!
Enjoy the 1 minute video of being in the moment!
