Today I came across a great article that another mom shared on Facebook. I'll share the article in the minute, but I wanted to add a few of my own thoughts on this subject first.
If you know me well, you know I do not mother hen my children. I let and fully expect them to be independent little & teenage people. I do not cater to their every whim or need. I allow them to learn to take care of themselves and not need me to function in life.
However, I do sometimes manage to get it together and we make some awesome Valentine's cards to pass out at school or a fun Pinterest inspired teacher gift.
Although this year I failed when we were the only one that forgot to bring Valentine's to dance class. Occasionally we have family movie night and we will make popcorn & S'mores in the microwave, and camp out in the living room over night. We are currently working on planting different kinds of little seeds in egg cartons to see what we can make grow. We sometimes make blanket and pillow forts over the kitchen table, or play Dora Uno, Memory or Go Fish 10x in a row. And we spend A LOT of time at football, basketball, and baseball games.
As you can see, they all look very neglected and unloved. ;)
And finally, here is the article that caused this crazy post!
Dear Mom on the iPhone, I get it
Now I need to go figure out what's for dinner. ;)
