So if you’re following along with #weekinthelife or maybe even doing your own #weekinthelife it’s easy to see that…we do a lot of the same things every single day. For me, I get up, I exercise, I take the dog for a walk. I eat the same mini omelets, drive Kate to school, mess around with Michael, try to complete work in the afternoons while Michael naps and I half play a cupcake matching game with Kate and half work. We walk the dog again and have dinner. Then bath and bed for the kids and then Dan and I settle on the couch for Scandal or Sons of Anarchy or Modern Family.
But what’s wrong with that? So we do a lot of the same things. But there’s a lot of beauty in those small routines.
Take bath time, for example. I do it every night. But when I take a moment to really see my children, see their faces, there’s something magically lovely in these little moments of routine.
