Time goes by so fast. Before we know it our kids are all grown up out on their own , off to college. As a mother, wife, and a mother that also works outside the home, I feel as if I cannot find enough time in a day to get everything I need to get done. Sometimes making me extremely overwhelmed. But there is something that is always a high priority for me and that is spending quality time with my daughter. I am always trying to find new things for us to do together or as a family. I have nights where I am so busy but I always try to find ways for my daughter and I to spend time together. Some nights she pulls a chair up to the counter in the kitchen and helps me make dinner, sometimes she helps me fold laundry or put things away. Some nights we paint our toe nails together, read books, bake cookies, cupcakes, or desserts for fun, cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie, play dress up, play uno moo and other games, puzzles, color, and crafts or different projects that I find in some of my magazines I get. And every night before bed we read a book of her choice, and say our prayers. Spending time and doing things with your kids is a great way to bond, and shape their values. Don't make excuses that I have this and I have that to do....make your children a priority.
