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 when we share what we are doing to bless our families in our home. If you would like to join in, click here.
I really love doing this meme because it helps me to keep everything into perspective!
When my husband and kids (minus Daniel) went camping last week, I soooo enjoyed the quiet time I had at home. Even though I still had Daniel with me, just having one child 24/7 as opposed to five is a huge difference!!! Can you imagine how the dynamics change from seven people in the house to only two? I got to enjoy his company for three straight days! Did I mention how quiet it was..lol? It was actually so refreshing! We didn't do much since he still was a tiny bit sick, but it was nice to just relax at home with him! It was just a really sweet time between him & I!!
With that said, I think it's so important to have those one on one times with your children...even if you just have one child! It's been awhile since I've had one on one time with my kids, and I want to start planning those "dates" again! And not just mommy and me, but also for daddy too! Then when it's time for mommy & daddy time, I call grandma to come over!
Normally, I would surprise them the day of, but I think I will start marking it on the calender so this way they can see for themselves when their day is coming up. I think it will be exciting for them to see "12 more days" till it's my turn!!
It's such a blessing for them to have our undivided attention; to not have to compete with anyone else, and to just talk about whatever they want to! And it doesn't always have to be about buying them something either. Just having "you" for themselves is the highlight!! Of course, if it's me, then more than likely we'll go out to eat somewhere..heehee.
Now that summer is coming up and school is coming to an end, this is the perfect time to start this up again! This is another way I will continue to keep our home singing!!
