Time Out

Today I took a time out. Not really for me, but for me and the boys. Bill got up at 5am to go to work, and won't be home until well after midnight, and for some reason it just seemed like a good day to step back from everything and just focus on the boys.

I didn't work or clean
I didn't blog, review, or vlog
I didn't turn on the tv or computer (well, until now, but the kids are alseep already)
I didn't worry
I just did.

My boys and I played all day, doing whatever they wanted. We dug in the dirt outside, we blew bubbles,we drew with chalk we walked to the tennis courts and played with all the acorns Little Dude could collect. Ben stayed in the sling all cuddled up to me all day. Little Dude had me sit and watch as he ran around outside, and when he called out "follow me!" I followed.

It was fantastic to just take a time out, and soak up my precious boys.

Miche, you've inspired me. Although it's terribly cold and gross outside I think I'll still try and find something fun to do with the boys tomorrow.

I don't know if I'll make it a whole day without coming online but I do vow to spend most of the day with the boys only and doing nothing else.
