"One generation of deeply loving parents would change the brain of the next generation, and with that, the world". Each day can bring you closer to your goal or two steps back. This is one of my favorite pictures of the two of us. It's adorable, but in that moment, I was annoyed and frustrated that I couldn't get two seconds to myself and was being climbed on while trying to do yoga. It's one of those things that always brings me back to those moments and keeps me focused on what's important. He was A BABY. How could I get annoyed with someone so innocent? Every time I think back, it just gives me so much regret that I was so stressed and preoccupied all the time, instead of enjoying this sweet moment. I wish I had given myself more love and self-care back then.
I really try to keep things in perspective when I get frustrated. Calvin is still so young and innocent. It's so difficult to remain calm when the house is being destroyed, he's interrupting me every 5 seconds while I'm trying to do shit, and the level of noise is beyond what a child should be capable of. Someday I'm going to miss all that, though. Doesn't negate my feelings in the moment, but I wish I could live every day with that perspective.
