I want to share with you how my kids got to know me this past month.
Do you remember when we talked to you about the importance of unplugging at the dinner table, and how Sister Schubert’s basket of warmth made that easy? Like, so easy! Check it out.
So tell me – did you try it?
Did you try those fun dinner conversation starters? I asked my kids what superpower they would want to have – my son said he’d love to move things with his mind so he could scare people. Sweet.
They were more interested in hearing what my super power would be. I had to think for a minute, but it would be to be in two places at once. They wanted to know why and I had to explain that I want to be with them whenever I can, but work and other responsibilities often take my time. They pointed out that we were together at dinner!
And they were right!
All it took was choosing to be present. Choosing to unplug and really be there. And what brought me a lot of joy was seeing them choose to do the same. I realized that the time we have together, daily, is limited and before I know it, they will be off on their own and these moments to really connect are fleeting. Choosing to unplug makes every dinner special, doesn’t it?
I mean, why wait for special occasions to have meaningful meals together?
My kids love getting to know me, and I love getting to know them even better.
Okay, your turn! Have you tried the unplugging experiment? How did disconnecting from technology change your family dinners? Did you learn something new about your kids? Did they learn something about you? I want to hear from you!
