Spending time with
Who would you like to spend time with? A celebrity? A deceased relative? A friend you haven't seen for a long time? Or maybe someone you secretly admire?
We hear about quality time and quantity time. That's a big hype in the US and the terms are making their entry in our little country. Children and parents have so little time to spend together, because they have way too many activities. What's wrong with just staying home on the weekends and spend some time together? Children don't feel the need to go to an expensive amusement park or a subtropical swimming pool if you give them the attention they deserve. They like to hang out with you, if you make them feel loved and welcome. Children are like sponges: they soak up all of your energy, but trust me: you get so much love in return..
So yes, I would like to spend some quality time with my girls. Separately. Because each one of them deserves some special mommy-daughter time. Let me think about something fun to do together.
