It is nice to realize that we don't always need to rush through things, especially time with our kids. A weekly trip the grocery store used to be my "me" time but I've long since given that up so that my son can go. He loves going to the store, so we go, take our time and act silly. His joy is more precious than my "me" time.

I think kids can learn SO much by coming with us when we run errands. It's always easier to not take them along, but then they miss out on important learning moments, and on that time to interact with you in a different, and sometimes challenging setting.

It's still nice to slip away now and again for solo shopping, though, isn't it? ;)

I've been going through a similar patch: too impatient, tunnel vision for what needs to get done, too set on my way. It's so much nicer when I can let all that go for a bit and I need to do more of that.

It's tough though, isn't it? I think I just get trapped in this mindset of rush, rush, rush, and I'm forgetting to just stay in the moment more.

Oh, how perfectly satisfying that the angry man got pulled over! I can't tell you how many times I've wished for similar justice.
