Quality time is easier said than done.
Since my toddler was born I can’t say that even one day my oldest son had my undivided attention. This week we took our kindergartener to Seattle for a few days. We left the youngest at home to focus all of our attention on the oldest. He’s been having a hard time adjusting to kindergarten so we hope that he will feel more settled now. A trip to the zoo to feed the penguins. A visit to Pike Place to watch the fish mongers throw fish. Swimming in the hotel pool. He’s convinced that the aliens from Toy Story live in that spaceship in the top of the Space Needle! Great trip all in all.
With renewed spirit we promise to take him swimming more frequently among other things.
I need to slow down and do the small things more purposely. Even brushing teeth the kids teeth can be quality time. Rushing through life is not what life is about. Hopefully I can figure this out.
We plan on consistently having a family night once a week from now on.
