MY CHILDREN OFTEN MAKE ME REALISE SOMETHING I DIDN'T NOTICE BEFORE

The other day during breakfast.

Ichi: “It was fun yesterday, wasn’t it?”
Me: “Oh yeah, your friend came to play.”
Ichi: “That was fun too, but what I enjoyed the most was watching telly with my family.”

Watching TV after dinner as a family - I never realised such a trivial thing was a big deal for my son.  It was an everyday thing, yet we hadn’t done that as a family for a long time.

Both me and Steve work from home.  That doesn’t mean we spend a lot of time with our children.  Actually, we don’t have much family time because we don’t follow the 9-6 office hours.

But when I heard what Ichi said, I decided to spend more time with my family.  We don’t have to do anything special, just consciously create the time to be together.
