I haven’t been consistent at writing on this blog. You may have noticed.
I don’t know if I will be more consistent now, but I am going to try to be as I slowly move this idea of mine forward.
I think I might even set some writing goals and actually try to reach them. Baby steps.
A couple of nights ago my youngest came outside where I was sitting at the round patio table enjoying the summer evening and asked me if I wanted to play catch. I of course said yes, not wanting to be the “dad” who turns down a game of catch. Think Field of Dreams, “Hey Dad. Do you want to have a catch?”
So we had a game of catch. On my end there was more throwing and running after the ball because of someone trying to imitate Mariano Rivera, but we still had a great time. When we were finishing up my sons simply explained how he had “needed some more parent time.” I’m guessing that often in our busy and technology filled lives that often our children just want a little more parent time.
Parents, giving them that time is up to us.
