Stopping and Smelling the Fire Trucks

I admit it, I’m a busy mom and sometimes get tend to get caught up in the ins and outs of being a mom and running a home. I find myself rushing from one doctor appointment to another, and from the grocery store to the gas station. It’s a never ending cycle.

I also tend to be the mom that gets caught up in the stress of it all and making sure we are making our appointments on time, and most often, forgetting to take in the little things that make up life. Last Monday on the way home, I was rushing and stressed out of my mind. My son saw a fire truck in a parking lot on our way home and let out a “I wish I could sit in it”.  I don’t know what triggered it, but I stopped the car, put the errands and appointments on hold , and let my son get up close and personal with the fire truck. We stopped and smelled the fire trucks and it was wonderful. I hope we do it more often.
