Family Moment Mondays
My dad was such a busy man when we were younger. Between running his own company, volunteering hours at our church, and trying to take care of us, he was gone a lot and we didn't get to see him as much as we would have liked, but when he was home.... he was ours.
He was always really good about talking to us, finding out what we were up to, asking us questions. He always made us feel like he cared about what was going on in our lives. Even at 5 years old, when my biggest problem was not getting enough time in the kindergarten play house. I know, pretty traumatic :)
But even with parents being busy they always managed some wonderful one on one time. One thing we did in our family was a recorded interview. Our dad would set up the camcorder and sit down and ask us questions. Mom and Dad wanted to capture us as children, just being our selves. They would asks us who are best friends are, our favorite movies, what we love about our mom and dad, what we wanted to be when we grew up.
It was such a fun thing that we did. But the best part of it was years later we would sit down and watch them. Always fun to sit down and to see what Little Melissa was up to so long ago. So if you are wanting some fun family time and would like a chance to make some wonderful memories of you sweet little ones; sit the kids down and record a interview with them between mommy and daddy. It is always nice to get more one on one time with our children anyways.
P.S. I am getting ready to start opening up Family Moment Mondays to all who want to participate. So if you are interested in participating I would love for you to email me so I have an idea of how many are wanting to participate. firstname.lastname@example.org
