Daily Diary: Loving The Downtime
2012 has been a very busy year. It’s all good stuff – so I’m not complaining, but the last 6 weeks or so were trying for my family. My children got the short end of the stick and now that things have sort of stabilized, I’m making the most of my time with them.
Our nighttime routine is my absolute favorite. After dinner, the kids watch a bit of TV and then we head over to my bedroom to read books and wrestle with Dad.
I don’t wrestle with Dad. I sit and watch praying that my children don’t get broken in half. Bill can get a little nuts with them and I’m just not used to that. I didn’t have that sort of rough play with my parents – but my kids LOVE IT. And I mean LLLLOOOOOVVVVEEEEE IIIIIIITTTTTT.
It’s a good 45 minutes of mayhem. After Bill dropped the kids on the bed to tickle them, I snapped this picture and I think it’s just perfect. They were screaming and laughing and red in the face and I was just soaking it all in.
This is what it’s all about.
