The struggle was real this morning.
Callie did not want to get up. Did not want to go to school. Did not want to eat breakfast. And apparently thought that M&Ms were a healthy option for an after breakfast dessert.
So after we had a *lively* discussion…..I simply pointed to our Alexa. We proceeded to jam out to her song of choice….and danced out the tension.
It resets us. How can you stay grumpy when you’re dancing in the kitchen with your kid? How can you stay mad when she’s doing the lawnmower across the kitchen? How can she stay grumpy when her crazy mama is doing the sprinkler?
You can’t. I’m learning to let go and learning that what works for me might not work for her. My pace might not be her pace. My go to might not be her go to. But everyone can take 5 minutes and have a dance party. Cause dancing fixes everything ❤
“If you stumble, make it part of the dance….”
