17. Learning to be present
"Not always being present with my kids even though I’m with them 24-7, I feel like I’m always trying to multi-task, then at the end of the day I feel like I didn’t actually play with them enough or give them 'real' being present undivided attention... and I didn’t even get the chores done I was attempting to do... because multi-tasking with a 1yr & 3yr old is just silly. Being on my phone, even if it is for necessary. communications (or worse, getting sucked into Facebook)...they hate it & I feel bad I always have it with me. The days I turn the phone off and am present, are the best days for all of us, everyone’s happier."
