it is what it is

should be writing something.
should be folding something.
should be washing something.
should be reading something.
should be cleaning something.
should be going to bed.

but today was not about the "should be's". 
today ended up being about other things. 

about lots of snuggle time. 
about watching a piece of my "type-A, too focused on the to-do list" self slide away.
about listening for the hundredth time to a story that was worth telling 100 times.
about cancelling plans with adults to focus on kids.

about letting them make mistakes and messes.
even when i am trying desperately to clean the house. 
so they learn. 
learn the activity and learn that it's okay to make the mistake
as long as you clean up the mess
(do grown-ups know this??  it's okay to make a mistake. i wonder)

today became simply today.
it is what it is.
and that's okay.
