Quality time together

Last Saturday, my family and I spent some good quality time together. We laid down on the floor, played with Megablocks, watched Mickey Mouse, read books, cuddled, and just relaxed. I wasn’t feeling too well, and even though I knew I should have been cleaning and I had a 100 things that I needed to do throughout the house, it felt great to just lay down on the floor with my kids and forget all that. Everyday, I am in ‘Energizer bunny‘ mode. I hardly ever sit down and just relax. Can blame me? With my kids you have to stick to a schedule, or else before you know it; it’s 4pm and you have cranky, hungry toddlers on your hands, and you haven’t made dinner yet!

On Saturday, I don’t know what came over me but I was just feeling lazy and exhausted. I’m glad I was too because, while I was laying on the floor with my girls, I was able to hear my little wallflower Alex counting from 1 to 10! If I had been in the kitchen fretting over the mess of toys, I would have missed that moment. I don’t think I’ll be being that lazy as often, because I’m hardwired to be in “go go go” mode. It might be a twin mom thing. It might even be a New Yorker thing. I don’t know, but I just can’t sit down and not be productive. However, I did learn to stop and smell the roses, and I have a new appreciation for the importance of quality time. So I will be making more time, for us to spend time together like this. I think it’s important for the kids and for me.

Are you always on the go? How do you make time for Quality time with your family?

    Yay! Quality time is great! And I am the same way.. Hardly make time for it… Love the pictures! And a good quote for this one would be “Never get too busy making a living that you forget to make a life.” 🙂
