Well, we've all been on punishment this week. My children were having a problem listening to mommy so, I decided that I would not drive them to class, they were not allowed to play outside or watch television for a week. I'm like, oh man what did I do that for. Am I punishing them or myself?
Needless to say, it was a long week. In order to make the lesson effective I was not online like I usually am (that is where I have been lately). So we made homemade chocolate chip cookies together, we read more books, we built sheet houses under the dinning room table and we spent a lot more quality time with each other as a family.
Here I thought it was a weeklong sentence, I was able to step back and evaluate how I spend some of my time. Are all the extra gadgets worth sacrificing precious memories with your loved ones?
