Chocolate chip waffles.

Pajama mornings.

Popsicles on the porch.

Bubbles in the bathtub when it’s scorching hot.

Water balloon fights.

Summers can be simple.

Backyard campouts.

Firefly chasing.

Baggy t-shirts and flip-flops.

Sprinkler magic.

Living room forts.

Summers can be simple.

Sidewalk chalk.

Water buckets and sponges.

Legos and board games.

Late night card games.

Finger painting.

A day with nothing on the calendar.

Summers can be simple.

No need to compare.

No need to put pressure.

No need for a giant bank account.

Just take it in.

Just be present.

Just watch them light up.

Just let them get messy.

Give yourself permission to have a simple summer.
