Every Moment Counts

I got a call from a friend today. She asked "What happened to you? You haven't been updating your blog!" I haven't? That's because I am hibernating. Hahaha! I wish.

Seriously, thank you Ate Elms for pointing it out. That means you're following my blog/s. As for your question, well, I was not in the mood to write blog posts over the weekend. Actually I had no time to write over the weekend. My weekend was really busy. But it was good. I was busy with my boys.

Yesterday, I meant to write a post but migraine got in the way. Summer is early and it's really hot. I can see myself stocking up on my migraine meds. Sigh.

Anyway, I just want to share something for parents out there. I am sure you know this already..

Spend every possible time you have with your child/children. Cherish it. They will grow fast enough.

EJ goes to school from morning until 3:30pm. After school, we usually go home right away unless he has a playdate or he has his taekwondo class. Once at home, I leave him in his playroom or in our bedroom and I go make our dinner or check my emails and online work until hubby arrives.

But I realize I have wasted perfect moments to bond with my 5-year old son. So now, I try as much as I can to stay with him after his school. I prepare our dinner right before I pick him up. That way we can both watch DVD together, play his iPad, read books together and sometimes just tickle each other silly.

I am not saying I am the best mom around. I am saying I treasure these little things I do with my son. And I am sure my son loves it also that he gets to play, read and watch DVD with me.

I notice that EJ is a lot sweeter now. The random "i love you, mom/dad" are too often mentioned. I also love the fact that EJ would rather stay at home than go on playdates. I think it says a lot.
