Lately, I have made a conscious effort to really listen to my children. To hear what they are saying and to be a more present parent. I may not always do as well as I would like to but I have been doing pretty well.
For instance, this past weekend, I didn’t pick up my computer once. I didn’t work at all. I spent the entire weekend with my husband and children and we had an amazing time.
We had some great conversations. We watched movies. We played outside together. We just spent time being a family.
My kids say the funniest things to me. They make me laugh on a daily basis and at other times, I am astounded by their wisdom.
Ovaltine is doing this really cool thing right now on their Facebook page. Now on the Ovaltine Facebook page, you can create your own personal Quotagraph. It can be something funny that your kids say or your own personal words of wisdom.
Here is one that I did for my daughter Annabella who makes me laugh constantly by saying things like this:
So go make your own and tell me what little nuggets of wisdom your kids share with you!
