Sometimes I have grand plans.

Homeschool. Projects. Accomplishments. Checking that list and getting work done. 

Then I forget the baking soda and the muffins turn out like this – dense mounds of heavy, sticky rubber. Feelings of failure and being overwhelmed rush in. 

So we pause. Pull back from pushing forward. See what happens. Listen to his request for the train set and let her help with the baking. 

Some mornings, we just do this. And it’s more than enough.
