One thing I’ve noticed lately is how little one-on-one time I spend with each of my boys. They are usually all together with me, or off doing their own thing – together. But it is amazing how fulfilling it is to spend even 30 minutes of time alone with each of my kids. It sounds crazy, but I feel like I see the real them during this time.
And they get to see the me that’s not just mom, rushing around trying to get things done, telling them what to do and what not to do, cooking, cleaning, working, teaching. But someone who they can relax with, talk and laugh with.
That is so crazy important.
