It is ok to Break the Rules sometimes and Slow Down!!

Do you ever break the rules and surprise your children? Yesterday was that kind of day for me as a mom. I am the disciplinarian of the family while my husband is the real trophy dad. He is the buffer and the parent who showers our children with patience and indulgence.

While I am responsible for fostering an environment that helps develop a love of learning, sometimes that makes me the ‘bad guy,’ in front of the children.

I do secretly admire these traits about my husband, though! Some simple things in life are hard to admit. Thanks to our big egos, right?!! 😉

Yesterday I had already made lunch for the boys and the boys were still in their pjs till 2:30pm… I saw them and they looked so comfortable and happy that I thought of breaking some rules!!!

While my husband and daughter were enjoying a nap, the boys and I decided to go on a lunch date and displayed to the whole world that we are major Pokémon and Minecraft fans 😉. It was nice to slow down for a day. 

One of my new year’s resolution is to ‘slow down’ and it already began yesterday! Wishing you and your loved ones a very safe and Happy New Year’s Eve and a wonderful year ahead!

  1. In my opinion, you made an “exception” to the rule, and with good intention. We need “slow” in our lives. Personally, I hope that if chronic “busy-ness” is a rule, it’s completely struck from the rule book.

    I suspect your boys were thrilled to spend time with their Mom, especially one also invested in playing some of the games they love. Cool beans! 🙂 Happy prosperous New Year to you and yours!!!
