My challenge in parenting is to remember to slow down, relax, and let kids be kids. Sometimes that means I won't accomplish much in a day, but the kids might be the better for it. So today I allowed 15 minutes of play time in the car in the Target parking lot before we picked up Claire from preschool. Given how much Molly loves to play "driving" and Lily likes to crawl around the car, I made myself sit back and watch them enjoy the car exploration rather than worrying about what I could do in those fifteen or twenty minutes.
