Day 10 prompt: time to relax. Relax? What is this relax you speak of? If you know what relax means, are you even a mom!? By most people's definition, I don't relax much. I don't watch TV and I like to be productive (organizing, building something, being creative, creating, baking, learning). I like to read (military/war stories, business/entrepreneurship, young adult fiction). I'm an adrenaline junkie (skydiving, bungee jumping, dead man's drop, slingshot) but this season of motherhood isn't conducive to those rushes. In this season of motherhood, my "time to relax" revolves around dance nights, soccer games, snuggling my shorties before school and before bed, and doing things around the house like laying floors, painting walls, building shelves and beds, installing baseboards, light fixtures, a sink, faucet, and garbage disposal, fixing the dishwasher...you know, no rest for the wicked. My favorite way to relax right now: snuggling all the babies in the family, especially mine! Mine aren't exactly babies anymore but they'll always be MY babies. And we do have a new baby in our family (9 nieces and nephews) for me to snuggle. Give me ALL the babies!
