I am linking up with my friend Mom's The Word to participate in her Monday meme, "Making Your Home Sing Monday." It's a day where we share what we are doing to bless our families in our home!! If you would like to be blessed, encouraged, or would even like to share how you are making your home sing, click here!
Being that I homeschool my children, and that I'm with them practically 24/7, one could assume I have alot of "quality time" with them. Since I am being honest here, I would say that I have more quantity than quality time with them. Yes, there are times I have my "mommy and son/daughter" time, but that is hardly enough.
It feels like I'm trying to do so much in so little time that I forget what really counts. I don't want my kids to be 18 and then me regret not doing certain things with them. My two older kids are tweens and are already starting to be involved in extra curricular activities away from home.
Yes, we do many things as a family, but what about my time with them when hubby is at work, and it's just "us?" What I'm going to do is give them my undivided attention each day to play whatever game they choose, watch them ride their bikes, cook with them...whatever "they" want to do. I won't be distracted with my blog or my cell phone, and I'm not going to worry about the laundry because it will still be there when I'm done!
I'm blessed to be a stay at home mom, and I want my kids to have fond memories of their childhood when they're older. I want them to know that I treasured our time together!!!
