This morning my sister and her kids came for a visit. It was perfectly laid back and the older boys had a great time playing outside in this beautiful fall weather that we've been having.
First Paisley carefully inspected his tiny little toes and before we knew it, she had gently taken his socks off.
I think a common misconception about bloggers is that they're on the computer all the time. For some, this might be true but, when I decided to do the 31 Day Challenge, I first made a deal with myself that this wouldn't make me be on the computer more. Instead, I've actually been on the computer less and I feel like this is something that's important to me as a Mommy.
It's easy to have our computers open or check our phones 30 times a day but, is it really necessary? No. Is it a good use of our time? No. And can our kids tell when we're giving them only part of our attention? Yes.
For the entire morning, I've been putting my computer away in our bedroom and I've also been hardly using my phone. I feel like it's helping me be more productive and it's showing my kids that they do deserve my full attention. When we "unplug", so-to-speak, it's easier to notice the things that matter because our attention isn't so divided.
And......I just have to say that I sure hope I don't sound preachy in even the smallest way. These are only the things that God has been working on in me and so that's why I'm sharing them.
