When the boys play, I want to be IN the moment, not just in the vicinity. I want to be part of their giggles and creativity. When they grow up, I want them to remember me as a mom that was WITH them not just around them.
Had I not stopped what I was doing and taken a few minutes to play, I would have missed all cuteness that comes through every pore of their little bodies.
And I would never want to miss out on an Indiana Jones Potato Head battle where he saves the pretty blonde.
