Let me ask, can you relate to any of these situations?

When enjoying movie night with the family you have your smart phone nearby to check for that “important email” every 5 minutes.

Soccer practice on Tuesday nights is great because it gives you a chance to finish work stuff on your laptop while “watching” from the stands.

As much as you and the kids love making dinner together, most nights there’s only time to whip up something basic without little hands slowing you down.

I bet the answer is yes. I for one certainly can. Life has a way of getting in between us and those little cuties we hold so dear. We tell ourselves -and them- that we would do ANYTHING for them. And we mean that? However, the reality is they don’t necessarily need us to do “anything” for them- they need us to engage with them. Kids want our presence, not just presents.
