Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there! It's going to be a short blog tonight because--this year for Father's Day--my husband asked that I take the kids away for the day. Does that sound heartless?
I assure you: it's not. I asked for the same thing for Mother's Day.
Having a one year-old and a two year-old requires a constant state of attention. I'm not able to mentally check out at any point. (Case in point, I turned my back for a hot second this week, and my one year-old ended up making snow angels with Cheerios.)
Resting our brains make us more tolerant people. (And the world needs more tolerant people right now.) Focus is important, but so is allowing the mind to drift; most of my best ideas come from the times I've let my mind wander. For me, the best way to ease my mind is to take long walks outside.
My husband likes to binge watch World Cup soccer. To each their own.
However you do it, I hope you're able to give your brain a rest this week, Reader. See you next Sunday. -Em
