I got permission from my friend, Michelle, to re-post this Facebook post she did Sunday because I think the message is so important.
Last night my 7 yr old son asks if we could watch a movie the whole family together. I said yes. When we got settled I was messaging a friend of mine planning an activity for the kids today. He says “mom, no phones”. Lol. I asked why. He says it’s because we’re at the movies. I love it.
Business owners or not, when we have children, let’s make sure that we make sure we’re present with them. Now the 1000th time they watch a kids show, I might just go do dishes. Lol. But we always need to set aside moments for them, no distractions.
Technology being available to us literally any second has become a blessing and a curse. I can work anywhere as long as there’s signal. Also it can be a block from the children getting attention. I am guilty of the infinite multitasking that we all do.
I will always strive to do, be, show, educate and love my children even more than I was. I think that’s every good parents goal. I just can’t ever let my reason for living and trying become my excuse for not being there.
I hope you enjoy today, your present, with those who matter to you. Happy Sunday
