To BE... or not to BE

To be or not to be- that is the question in this season of motherhood. To BE present and get on the ground with my 4 year old and 16 month old to read books, even if we already read them all a thousand times over. To BE at rest in my home cuddling on the couch, watching cartoons even though the list of house chores may seem endless. To BE more excited about Lego towers and games of catch than emails sent and floors sparkly and clean. To BE in the moment with my children. That can be one of the greatest questions and battles of motherhood.
