A Relaxed Mom Does for Three for Thursday

I’m finding that since I’ve been spending more time on the floor with Norton, I’m feeling more relaxed… and I think that’s helping me be a better mom.  It’s certainly nicer to be a relaxed mom than a stressed out one who is feeling like she’s on the edge of a cliff.  I’m enjoying it.  And I’m enjoying writing relaxed blog memes, too, like Evelyn’s Three for Thursday.

Three things I stole from my kids’ Halloween candy stash:
1.) Kit Kats
2.) Aero bar
3.) Werther’s Original

Three things I buy that have to be name brand:
1.) Cereal.  Whether it’s Vector or Lucky Charms, it just doesn’t taste right when it’s a store brand.
2.) Becel margarine.
3.) My hair products

Three things I spend more than fifteen minutes doing every day:
1.) Cleaning my house
2.) Facebook
3.) Playing with my kid

Three things that put me in a fantastic mood:
1.) Norton playing nicely with the puppies
2.) The husband coming home early from work
3.) Getting to take a bath alone.

Three things I do that a grown woman has no right to be doing anymore:
1.) Skipping out on chores to watch television.
2.) Playing peekaboo
3.) Pouting when I don’t get my way

  1. My absolute favorite is a bath alone…ahhh. It’s amazing how much playing with your children actually helps you feel younger and more calm.

  2. I totally admire your floor time quest! I need to be better at that. Aero bar? Is that a Canadian thing??

    • Yup, Aero bars are a Canadian chocolate bar made by Nestle. They have holes inside the bar and you can feel the bubbles if you just let it melt on your tongue. 🙂
