‘Are you spending quality time with your family?’

Motion Monday Challenge: Write a list of fun games and activities you like to do with your children, as a family. Include really effortless, easy to do activities as well simple and special outings. Then, do one different thing from your list with your family every day this week! Allowing that time to get together, even if it’s only a 10 minute activity will be very beneficial for you all!

One of the blogs that I subscribe to Mother's Toolkit also has a facebook page. I tend to use facebook more now as a tool to catch up on the things I like to read, as opposed to the mundane things that maybe going on in my friends lifes. So, whenever I come across something that I like to read, I also like it alot if they have a facebook page...

anyway.. that's not the point of this post. The point of this post is the above came up on my facebook feed and it got me thinking... and the answer to the question is No, I'm not spending quality time with my family. The next question is what am I going to do about it....

The best place to start would be with the here goes...

1. watching a dvd that we can all enjoy together
2..playing a board game - especially with nathan
3. going to the duck pond with aston.
4. going to the river and sitting in the sunshine
5. reading aston stories with the kids
7. palying with play dough
8 having cuddles.
9. going on picnics
10. going some where spontaneously
11. going window shopping with laura, with nothing in mind, and no where else we have to be...
I'll report next week and see how successful i was at the challenge......

  1. Hi there,

    For me, time is a luxury that we don’t have because we’re too busy trying to make sure our children have the luxuries we never had. Instead of saying that we don’t have the time for our children, it would be more accurate to say that we do not make time to be with them because of our busy schedule. However, I believe that most would want to make time for their children. Most parents nowadays are facing this similar challenge and are guilty of not spending enough quality time with their children.

    Just my two cents.

    P/S: Nice blog. Keep it up :)


Thanks for stopping by... Leave some love :-)
