My boys Max & Joss are 10, and almost 8, respectively.
They’re awesome boys and I love spending time with them.
With so many things on my to-do list (including three jobs), it’s often a challenge to cast all of it aside and simply be with my kids — while they’re still super psyched to spend time with me.
Do you get distracted by things like work, email, Facebook, mowing the lawn, etc.?
One day our kids won’t be kids anymore, and the time we spend away from them now — while they’re still kids — can’t be replaced.
One thing me and my boys like to do is “dad day,” where I take one of my boys out on a day I’m not working. It’s a great way to reconnect and spend solid time with each of my boys.
No matter what your situation — good, bad or average — when your kids are grown up, they’re not going to remember whether you paid the bills on time, or if the lawn looked like crap. They’re going to remember whether or not you spent quality time with them.
And remember, you are not alone …
