It’s the last week before school starts so this week I’ve really tried to be conscious of the “yes” mom opportunities that come my way.

Tuesday night both boys had a friend spend the night. “Mom, can the four of us sleep on the trampoline tonight?” There was a meteor shower that night and they wanted to see it for themselves. I was concerned that they wouldn’t get enough sleep (they didn’t). And I was concerned that we would all pay for it with some irritability the next day (we did). But I’m still convinced that they made a memory Tuesday night that was worth the trade-offs!

How are you doing with your commitment to be a “yes” mom?
