As we approach the terrible twos, time-outs have been prevalent in this household but more and more I’m noticing I’ve been using time-outs for myself too. Not as punishment but as a way to soak up some of the smaller things that sometimes can feel like mundane tasks and to watch my time and how it’s spent.
There are moments I know I should savor but they feel like such a waste of time in that very second… the other day, Easton woke early and requested post nap snuggles that lasted for nearly an hour. I reluctantly snuggled in, phone in hand emailing away… it suddenly dawned on me… I was looking at this snuggle session as time wasted. In 5 years, when those naps are no more and those intense snuggle sessions have faded, I don’t want to regret not enjoying this time with him.

That’s the funny thing about time, you can wish it away, wish for it back, wish for it to stand still, and wish for it to speed up. But that’s it… time isn’t something we can control. All we can do is to be mindful of the 86,400 seconds that we have in our day. Post nap snuggle sessions are already a rarity around this house and I know as time passes they will become a thing of our distant past.
Staying mindful of my time looks so good with a Jord watch on my wrist. The Frankie Series is my favorite from their line of amazing and unique watches. The wooden band is what immediately drew me to this brand, it brings a natural element into my day to day wardrobe and the colored face and gold accents add a touch of elegance too. This watch has definitely become a staple to my wardrobe. You can shop this watch here.
With the holidays on the horizon, I know I’ll be adding these beautiful watches to my gift ideas! I think this would be perfect wrapped up under the tree!
