guest post: cultivating time with my girls

welcome to krystina from lollipops! 


being a homeschooling, blogging, crafty mama of a toddler and two tweenagers makes it hard to find time to enjoy something together that has nothing to do with schooling or parenting. 

so on Sunday afternoon while the baby (Mr. Boy) napped my girls and i headed to the craft room newly named "the creative arcade" by my readers. we decided to hang out together and make some cards. we mostly giggled and got very silly and had a bit of chocolate :) we actually made a few cards and the girls taught me a thing or two. they constantly impress me. it's amazing what they create when i let go of all the micro managing.



the reason i chose to make cards with them was to create a way for us to write to each other. little notes of love and encouragement go a long way -you'd be amazed. it's fun getting a little surprise in your mailbox from your kids. and they just beam every time they receive one! i also notice a huge improvement on their day to day behavior when they've been encouraged. it's a win/win! 

maybe this is something my girls will continue into the ancient practice of writing snail mail ;)

thanks for your sweet ideas krystina!
