In a world of instant gratification, I really wanted to teach the triplets to be mindful, focused on the present moment, and to really think twice before acting.
It may seem like a daring feat for a mom of triplets, but there are 3 tools I use everyday to reinforce teaching mindfulness.
1. Model the behavior I want to see
2. Ask questions
3. Start a daily gratitude practice
Fast forward about 5 years to this week.
This week my father had a triple bypass. It’s been a rough week. But during his surgery my mom and I found ourselves in the waiting room with Ivy.
The second we walked in, she looked up, flashed a huge smile, and asked “where are the triplets???”
