I’ve Got A Lot Going On…..
We have some wonderful friends who have been
On Friday night I decided I needed to connect with the children. I have been doing family movie night on Friday's lately, mostly because it's easy and I'm tired after a long week. While we get to snuggle and laugh and eat popcorn, there really isn't a whole lot of connection going on. So in the middle of the movie I gathered all the children and we went outside (in our pajamas) with some blankets and we laid down in my new bedroom (there was no roof on it) and looked up at the stars, they were amazing. Tommy was so excited to find the Big Dipper. We snuggled outside under the stars in our house, lol, we talked and laughed and then the boys got too crazy and Abby was missing her movie, but for the moment we slowed down and it was good.
So I think for now I'll have to focus on the quality of our time together not the quantity; but make no mistake I do realize that a half hour a week of quality time in no way makes up for putting in quantity time as a mom. It just doesn't and it shouldn't, God gave me the responsiblity of these four children and I love it.
