Spring break is a time where you can really spend some quality time with your kiddos! Let's take advantage of this...
Spring break can be a huge vacation or just a time spent at home - a staycation, going on walks, having nice conversation, and doing crafts or reading together. Whatever you choose to do, I encourage you to reconnect with your child during this time.
The older my children get, the more I realize how time truly flies and the gift of time. I am trying to be mindful of who I surround myself, the stress I allow, and how I take care of myself... and it is isn't just for myself, but for my children. Life is not easy. We have different stresses that pull us in different directions. Parenting alone is hard enough and then stress on top of that can sometimes really leave our buckets feeling empty.
Empty buckets aren't helpful to our children. Our children need us and even though I am looking forward to Spring break with my children, I also know I need to have a full bucket for them. I want this Spring break to be so memorable for my children but also for our family. My attitude going into it can determine this... are we going to have a great one, or am I going to let the stress of everything going on in my life, shadow the break?
Preparing for Spring Break is and going into mindful to enjoy our children whether we are in Disneyworld or just solving a puzzle at home together.
Here is a great article I found that also may help prepare us for this GIFT of time with our children.
