A Frozen Summer

It may be hot and sunny here in the ATL but inside this house it is still Frozen…yes I can almost quote the movie because I have seen it so many times. I even have three songs from the movie on my iPhone (as requested) so we can listen to them in the car! Well, I was unloading the dishwasher when my daughter told me it was time to play Frozen. A little curious what that meant, I stopped the dishes and played along. Basically, she wanted to start from the beginning and reenact the movie. I was quickly corrected if I got any line wrong.

So many times I get wrapped up with cleaning the house, doing laundry and emptying the dishwasher that I forget to take time to enjoy the four year old that wants to play pretend. My first impulse is to say, “give me five more minutes sweetie.” But I have tried lately to step away from the crazy house maintenance and spend that special time with my kids. My son will ask for cuddle time…I love cuddle time! Before I know it they will be grown up and thinking mom and dad are so NOT cool! My house is far from spotless. If you want to come by, you are more than welcome, I just need an hour to hide laundry, shut doors and clean up enough to make things presentable. But I love this priceless time with my kids that I will never get back. There will be plenty of time to clean later.
