want vs need

I wanted to sew pillow covers with this new fabric.
I wanted to work on garlands.
I wanted to add to my shoppe.
I wanted Jude to practice cursive.
I wanted Delia to practice scales.

The kids wanted to sit on the sofa on this gloomy afternoon and watch a movie and eat popcorn.

So, I popped corn, made hot cocoa and fired up the netflix instant queue.
We watched "Liberty's Kids".
Great show by the by...feeds my homeschool wanna-be soul.
Sometimes motherhood means changing wants to needs.
All of us needed down time today.
The kids and I needed a cozy blanket, a tasty snack and the chance to snuggle on the sofa.
