Noah’s goals at age 7.
The final goal surprised me: “Being with mom for one day myself with mom.”
I felt completely overwhelmed with juggling work & kids – there were never enough hours in the week to manage. I could not imagine finding time to be with one of the kids alone.
The power of dreaming and writing your goal down – the “mom and me day” was invented.
With the help of friends, calling in sick to work, planning adventures when the others were at a sports practice or picking up one kid when the others are with their dad we found ways to make “mom and me” happen.
Seven years later, we “mom and me” often.
