Today was one of those days that make up for the bad days.
The family was able to keep the fighting to the bare minimum. The teenager gave in to the constant pressure and actually spent time with us. The phone only took over a few times, but that’s much better then constantly.
The little ones were very agreeable to the various outdoor activities that we accomplished. They only complained and cried for no reason a few times. Piece of cake compared to what I am used to recently.
Don’t get me wrong, I have great kids. I truly love spending time with them and when my husband can join in, it truly is amazing. Between bike rides, parks and baseball we absolutely kept busy.
You know what that meant?
LITTLE TO NO ELECTRONICS!! I didn’t have to pry them away from these silly devices that we all are getting a little too addicted to. There is a time and place for everything of course, and I kept everyone a little calmer by giving everyone a hours time after lunch to play on something. I of course napped, because that’s what moms do right?
This will be the one that makes me smile through the bad days that are bound to sneak up on us.
