I caught myself doing this one day and decided to change my behavior, which started with not making the girlâ€™s luch before they woke from nap, but instead dressing them in aprons and making it an activity we could do together.

Love it, Chrissy! Thank you sharing and thanks for reminding the rest of us to look for little changes we can make in our routine. I’ll send you an e-mail about your prize, but if I don’t hear from you by Wednesday morning I’ll have to pick another winner.
