Last night was the Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet- I am the Cub Scout Committee Chair and so in charge of quite a bit of it- I had my lists all ready of everything I had to get done Monday and Tuesday, feeling great that I would not miss a thing as it was all written down... and then Lucas got sick.
Sick enough that school was missed on Monday, no running errands for me.
So instead, I bumped most of my list to Tuesday and made a late night Costco run after Eric was home as that was the only time I would be able to do it.
Since I was stuck at home on Monday I decided I would get things done around the home, cleaning, laundry, all while taking care of a sick Lucas and a toddler wanting to be entertained.
As part of my Heartfelt Acts this month, rather than just tell someone I love them everyday (one of the two goals) I have been making a little heart for each family member that says I love you- and then something I love about them.
On the first day I gave the hearts, Ryder loved his- never putting it down, even taking it with to story time.
"A heart" he squealed and then immediately asked me to read it.
"I love you. I love that you help me remember what matters most." I read.
I gave him a hug and then got up to go back to the laundry.
"Play with me?" his little voice asked.
Immediately I saw all the laundry on my bed, the list of things I needed to get done. "Not right now, I need..." and then I stopped.
The irony of the moment slapped me in the face. He helps me remember what matters most.
"Okay let's play."
