There it is. The ugly truth about my silverware drawer. It drives me crazy - and occasionally I wipe it out - but there they are again. Crumbs!
Why am I being so openly transparent about this? Because I want all you mamas out there to know several things: it's okay if your house is not sparkling, your kids are not perfectly behaved, and you lose it every once in a while.
Forget all the Pinterest-perfect pictures. Let's talk about real life.
My kids are grown, but I look back on lots of times that were less than perfect. Big picture - they managed to make it to functioning, loving, amazing adults. Even my special-needs adult son continues to encourage me by his responsibility and care for others.
From my vantage point - I try to make the main thing the main thing - Love. And I hope that in this New Year - 2018 - you take the time to love, and to be kind to yourself.
Here in my piano studio - we practice the same thing. We love each kid, and overlook the small stuff. If you are curious as to what a modern piano lesson looks like, contact us. We will give you a few quick schedule options to choose from. Happy New Year - and here's to wonderful music-making!
