“Mommy, I love snuggling you.” *cue heart melting*
I’ve tried to be more intentional the past couple weeks of being available for my boys. When they ask me to play with them, instead of saying “in a little bit, Mommy’s busy right now”, (which is totally my norm 😣) I’ve said “YES” as much as possible.
It hasn’t been easy since I run 2 businesses from home, but it’s been so worth it. The joy on their faces that Mommy gets to play with them... Why have I been missing out on this?? THEY are the reason I’m even here, the reason I get up everyday.
I’ll tell you one reason I have been missing out... it’s right here. Social media. Why are we so addicted to our phones? 🙈 Mindlessly scrolling and for what? Just to like another pretty photo or see what’s going on in the world? I don’t need to be constantly checking my phone. I promise, I’m not that important.
I don’t know if anyone else struggles with this, but I am willing to bet there is.
So, here’s to putting the phone down more often and being more present with our families. Let’s be more intentional in interacting with them—they’re the ones who truly matter, not the strangers in pretty squares. ❤️ - 26 minutes ago
