“I strive to be more ‘screen free,’ to say ‘yes’ to things that I might have otherwise said…”‘

“I feel most connected to my children when I am embracing the imperfections, the chaos, and holy mess of my beautiful life. In order to do that I must be present…and I don’t mean just physically present but emotionally/mentally present. It’s exhausting at times but when I’m able to be fully present, it gives new life to our relationship. When we are more connected, the girls are more cooperative and so am I. So I strive to be more “screen free,” to say “yes” to things that I might have otherwise said “no” to doing, and to embrace messy. I don’t always succeed but I try my best. Sometimes, trying your best is good enough.”
