“‘Waking up to you is like….presents on Christmas morning.’ His mouth curved. ‘For your convenience, I’m already unwrapped. Batteries not required’.” – Sylvia Day
Thursday, December 25th
Christmas was a day delightfully devoid of smartphones, tablets, tvs, and blogs, and it was absolutely perfect.
The kids woke up early but got a good night of sleep. They were ready to engage in the sport of opening gifts. The rest of our extended family was sleeping elsewhere in the house, so we had to keep the restless youth at bay. There were lots of wiggles and giggles as they had every ounce of our attention.
I loved this uncharacteristic direct link between my children and I. It really is true that kids need less things and more moments with the people that we love. We all need that. I know this, but it is hard to put into practice day after day after day. Another goal for the days to come.
Under what circumstances do others have your sole attention?
