It has become normal for us to be eager for our children. Every parent, especially a single parent, spends too little time with their children. This is the burden of today, which most of today’s parents carry. Time is one in which we all hurry somewhere, and even the ones we spend together are often of poor quality because of the burden of enormous obligations. On The Road From Home (Awakening) To School
Sometimes my boy misses me a lot even though we live together. We were constantly in a hurry and I didn’t like it at all. Especially our fast-paced, nervous mornings, in which we would run around the house to get there all on time, to extended stay, to school, to work. The journey from home (waking) to school was everything, just not pleasant. I remember how much we were burdened with the coming day and our new responsibilities, chasing and yet somehow less arriving than now. I realized that when we got there, I didn’t feel any satisfaction, on the contrary …
It Was Time To Change
I’m bored with that. I wished we could change something, and it has been a few months since we went to school to make our most beautiful part of the day. We get up a little earlier than before, but I try to get him to bed a little earlier. And then everything slowly … we pamper ourselves and so we wake up, play with our cat, prepare without haste and by the way we talk, sing, we can laugh, run, tread on bars, we stupid … I think we apologize more and hang out better in our morning hours than for the rest of the day. And we enjoy it.
The list for the day is on paper, which has to be done, will be done, and the rest can wait. But I can no longer wait to get everything done, to enjoy the time spent with my son, and I cannot return the time. I am no longer burdened with upcoming obligations. I get up slowly, aware that we only have an hour for us. And aware that we will get there.
Our Way Is No Longer The Same
And how much I learned about my son the moment I slowed down, learned to listen to him and hear him. How much I just had to learn about everything he would talk to me about on our short trip from home to school. I needed to reach the level needed to answer all these powerful questions, get informed, read more and more … Hard topics are forbidden. The welcome topics are mostly about nature, seasons, calendar, space, architecture, cars, birds, colors, no end there.
This morning we were repeating a song that I just couldn’t teach, so he was correcting me and laughing at me. Because I can’t remember, and I said I knew better than him. He hadn’t even noticed that I had checked that way to see if he had learned. A few days ago, we repeated everything about the seasons and the calendar, and he didn’t even notice. And only rain in rubber boots and a hike to the bars …
Well then kisses, waving and greetings for the end of our journey, short and so colorful. On our way from home (getting up) to school, nothing is the same anymore. And I’m happy that it is. I am especially grateful to realize how little we have – sometimes a lot! 🙂
P.S. Sometimes, it is only when we are entrepreneurial, living and enjoying and laughing… and we cannot delay happiness, children know it best!
