Five Minute Friday: Present — 12 Comments

  1. Stopping over from FMF-great post! I find myself getting far too distracted over little details and whatnot…which in the end don’t matter much. And then I miss out on what’s actually happening! Good reminder not to allow that to happen this week-thanks!

  2. I’m finding sometimes I need to say to myself “Put down the iPhone, Julie” — or purposefully leave it in another room. Even when I just want to get a cute photo for grandma 🙂 Love your blog and your little ones are adorable. Happy Friday!!!!

  3. Hi! Visiting from Raising Imperfection. I think putting away all the electronics helps me be really present with my 3yo twins. I also love reading books with them. It’s a learning activity but for us it’s also about slowing down, sharing our ideas, and being close. Have a great week!

  4. It’s nice to be present in your kids life. I try my best to cut out the computer and phone when Reagan is awake. I try to limit my time to when she’s napping.

    Thank you for linking to Raising Imperfection.
    Please come back Friday to see if you were featured. 🙂

  5. What a candid post. Thanks for provoking my thoughts on being “there” with my children (and husband too). God bless you as you live for Him.

    • I’ve been challenged about this every time I’ve linked up this post this week! It’s so easy to justify what I’m doing as “multi-tasking” but I need to give my kids at least some undivided attention every day. Thanks for coming by.

  6. I am bad about glancing at my phone for Facebook or what not while playing with my child. I have been purposefully trying to leave my phone out of arm’s reach to avoid the temptation. I need to make more time to just play whatever he wants to play with him. I like playing, but get bored making hay for his animals all the time since that is what he is obsessed with. Tractors and hay and farming. But I should nurture this more and make hay even when bored to tears. Thanks for the reminder.

    Thanks also for linking up with the Tuesday Baby link up a few weeks back. I would love for you to link up again this week!
