slowing down for the children

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do."
~Edward Everett Hale

Slowing down is the best thing I can do for my preschoolers. I get my cue when I feel gentle a tug on my pant leg and a brightly colored, lightly chewed chubby book is thrust in my view.
The children are asking for more than a favorite story to be read for the hundredth time.
But for my time. 
I never thought getting my priorities right could be such a pleasure.
