Y’all this kids playroom organization and makeover project was looooong overdue in the Cantu household. Imma be reaaaaaal honest with y’all and let you know that my breaking point was when I realized I was doing waaaaay more yelling at the kids to clean up their mess than I was actually making the mess WITH them! I was fed up with spending my time cleaning (or begging them to clean) instead of being there, present, in the moment playing with them. I’ve heard it, felt it, and know it, but sometimes I still need to remind myself….these little years are fleeting and I want nothing more than to enjoy these few years where they actually WANT me around! (I know those teenage years are just around the corner.) I don’t want to look back and regret the time spent worrying about the mess instead of enjoying it!
And just like that the first three weeks of the new year are already over! I seriously can’t believe it! Although, for us, Weeks 1, 2, & 3 were spent recovering from a wicked stomach bug, strep, and scarlet fever; so that could be why it was kind of a blur…my memory must be trying to just block it out. 😂
Anywho, Week 4, I see you! And this week has been dedicated to preparing & planning for 2019! If you’ve followed me on Instagram for awhile, then you already know I’m a planner. And a list maker. And an all around control freak (but that’s neither here nor there). Well, my Holy Grail of planning & staying on track is my Erin Condren Life Planner.
