This week we got up with the boys (6.30am!!!!) and watched a Christmas movie together. Our boys go to bed really early so a movie after tea is not an option. So instead I got uncomfortable - I hauled myself out of bed when I could have slept in (hello holidays!) and instead of them watching it alone we watched together and then afterwards we talked about what we liked and what made us laugh.
I acted excited to get out of bed when they came in all excited and shiny eyed in the morning.... and actually I enjoyed myself! Sometimes for me the barrier is my own laziness and when I get over this I am always the better for it.
Being together on a special occasion creates such a sense of team and love. It's never a waste of time. Never.( I didn't take photos you really don't need to see me at this time of the day!)
I have so enjoyed this series this year and you have no idea how much your encouragement has meant to me. I have such a passion for people and families to love and enjoy each other and the thought that someone else might find this space helps/encourages them to do the same gives me such joy.
In 2013 I will continue this series on a Monday - including a linky so that you can help me to encourage, be encouraged and resource each other. I would love to have your input too.
And I have made a button - cue huge gasp! With help and direction and here it is :o)
So if you would like to join in with these posts anytime please grab the code on the right.
I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be) is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too.
Simple. Achievable. Intentional: becoming the mama I want to be.
It has been a lovely series, well done! On all fronts! Enjoy this special tme with your boys x
I have loved this series and im so glad your continuing miriam, and i shall endeavour to join in in the new year. Have a wonderful christmas x
I have enjoyed your posts, as they make me nostalgic for when my children were little. My oldest one is a teenager, and little one is heading that way, and being a mum seems to be getting challenging in different ways to when they were little. Wishing you a lovely Christmas.
Miriam you have done SO well this year in this. I have loved reading all of your adventures, trials and successes! Thank you for being an inspiration to our family :)
P.s, love the button, well done!!! xx
Yay for making a button!
No but seriously, I have really enjoyed this series and have long thought that you should open it up as a linky. There have been times during this year when I have been tempted to take the easy route in my parenting and have been reminded by the messages in some of your posts that I should slow down and enjoy my children as they are now. Thank you so much for this as it has led to some wonderful experiences!
