Quality Time...

With Joel home for 4 days in a row, it was beyond amazing to see the change in our son. He was content, less whiny, more polite and increasingly adorable. I sat and pondered his sudden disposition and realized for 4 days, his needs for relationship with mommy AND daddy all day long were met 100%!

Our family (Kevin and Nate) left yesterday after a wonderful couple of days together. Once we had some alone time, we found ourselves doing something we hadn't done in a long time....sit, relax and do nothing! At first it was hard, full of guilt...but now that it's Sunday night at 10pm, I realize how important it was for us to slow things down, watch the beautiful lights on our christmas tree, and enjoy a bowl of popcorn while watching Lord of the Rings. Downtime, precious downtime!
