THIS is the reason why it means so much to me: my kid loves it.
Yep. That's it.
It is a simple thing that we do as a family that makes my kid feel valued and loved.
She knows that this time we spend together as a family is precious.
She knows that we value this time with her.
She knows we look forward to it.
She knows that nothing else matters to us in that moment that we are together as a family.
She KNOWS all of this.
It was super fun to read her observations, thoughts and feelings about game time.
And...it made me cry. Grateful happy tears of course.
I love this girl so much.
I can't give her a lot of things her heart desires, but I CAN give her myself and the gift of my time.
It seems that is good enough for her, and thats cool.
I scanned her final copy below (errors and all). You can click on it to make it bigger.
Bloggy friends...spend time PLAYING with your kids, it matters to them.
