Love is spelled TIME!
This little phrase makes me think of my girl. She feels the most loved when I give her time.
I first heard the phrase from a series of parenting/family videos we watched in Sunday school at our church. I HIGHLY recommend them! I know I will be re-watching each year.
But back to sweet Eleanor. At night I like to lay in bed with her and just talk. I ask her about her favorite part of the day, and then I tell her my favorite part of the day. I try to choose something that we did together as my favorite part each day. Now before you start thinking I am the most rockstar mom, there have been some days that I have been so preoccupied, that I didn't give her any undivided TIME the entire day...when I try to think back to the favorite part of the day, I get a little hit in the gut. What was really more important that her? No not that text, or email, or Instagram, or my hyper straightening mode of the kitchen.
So this my dear friends is more of a reminder for myself, but goes out to all y'all too, our children want our time!!!! ...not a closet full of clothes, toys on top of toys, activities each night, playdates around the clock, they want us, all of us and our time.
