Today I got a lot of one on one with my kids. It was nice considering I normally seem to be caught up with so much unnecessary stuff throughout the day. To be honest I just get busy and forget how important it is to spend time with the kids. Our children need attention, it is important to give them that. It helps there imaginative play, their social skills, and overall mental health. Kids thrive on having their parents attention. Me and my daughter got to play with her barbies, it was quite fun to go back in time and pretend to be a kid again. With my boys it was war, playing with army men.
As an adult I feel like all I do is stress and dwell on the negative but when my kids play with me or vice versa I actually feel much better. I am able to actually be myself and enjoy some quality time with my kids. Also I have really gotten to love the outside time with them also, especially with the water guns. My boys are very sneaky and have gotten me good many times this summer.
I think taking a time out and taking a break from adulthood is good. It helps me take a breather and feel refreshed. My kids are happy and truly enjoy the time as well. Just seeing their face when I am there spending time with them brightens my day. I encourage all parents to try it, take some time to just sit down and spend some quality time with their little ones. You might actually find it to be an amazing experience an a chance to make unforgettable memories.
