Time with Kids is a Tremendous Gift

The kids often make a mess with legos on the floor, and not always want to clean them up when I want them up.  I remember the first time I knelt down to tidy them myself and actually loved it.  Why?

Because I realized I could do it!

I could just sit there and pick legos off the floor, instead of being pulled out of the moment by thoughts and paranoia around all the other things that needed to be caught up on.

Maybe I'm getting stupider or something, but I just adored picking those legos off the floor.  Time is a tremendous gift and I really treasure having more of it at home with the kids.  So much so, that I'm looking forward to the summer when preschool's out and we resume our day trips to DC and parks.
