The other night I was sitting at my dinner table with my family and the kids, all 6 of them, were being chatter boxes. I felt like asking them all to take a deep breath and be quiet. But then I realized something that I needed to remember. They were sharing the details of their life with me and it would be easy to ignore these status updates but they are the most important ones I can pay attention to. I do love Facebook and Twitter but staying up to date on everyone else and missing what my kids are saying would be really sad. So I’m taking more moments to listen, to be in the moment and stay up to date on my kids statuses.
