This past week Bounce and I have had a lot of time together – owing to the fact he was too sick for kindy and I’ve been intentionally trying to cherish this time.
I’ve tried to say ‘yes’ more than ‘no’.
Yes I will come and build trains with you, and play at whatever might be taking your imagination
On Sunday afternoon we had a wonderful time with paper planes and nerf shooters (like foam bullet thingys with a sucker on the end)
I made a whole in a large piece of newspaper and we blu-tacked it across a doorway and sat on the windowsill trying to get our planes/ shooters through
Flip got 4 and Bounce and I got none but we laughed so much and had such a great time together
It’s the low-brow, cheap, funny things that really do bring opportunities for bonding more often than not.
This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be) is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too. Please inspire me with the little moments you are snatching with your little people OR with ideas I could do with mine. If you have blogged about it please leave a comment so we can all visit and encourage each other.
What’s your aim like? Mine’s hopeless but thankfully the boys (and I) find that rather entertaining.
Simple. Achievable. Intentional: becoming the mama I want to be
