#SoCS October 13/18 – Precious

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “precious.” Use it any way you like. Enjoy!

So sorry for the late response (well, for me anyway!).

It was a busy evening last night, where I usually type up my SoCS piece ready to publish the next day, so I had precious little time to actually write!

But for good reason.

It’s really important to have that quality time with family, both your immediate, and your extended ones.

Last night, I rushed back after work with Lil Princess, and we cleaned the house from top to bottom (that’s my usual Friday routine, so the rest of the weekend is free!). Lil Man went to meet his mates for an hour.

We finished up and went to my in-laws to chill out with them, as though I see them every day after school, it’s usually a rushed pick up of the kids and a quick hello.

We chatted, then my Hubby Dearest, brother-in-law and his wife got back from work too. After a quick chat with them, we decided to get back to ours as the kids needed to eat and go bed.

It ended up being an evening of laughter, a time where more precious memories were made. My brother-in-law is so funny, I was laughing hysterically. I haven’t laughed like that in a ling time, you know, the whole-tears-streaming-down-your-face laughter.

And we decided to have a family day today, just the four of us, not the usual weekend of being sat at home, but getting out and actually doing something together.

The kids are getting older, it won’t be long before they are making their own plans with friends, and us parents are just a liability (for a while at least – I know you regain that respect and understanding of the importance of mum and dad when you get older, but as teens and tweens – we are just the ones that seem to say no a lot, and give out money when needed – personal cash points!) so it’s great to actually do things together.

Precious times.

Catch ya later Peeps! Happy Saturday!

    Yes, you are absolutely right. Go out and collect precious moments. It changes so fast and they are not feeling like doing something with their parents or simply go their own ways.

    Have fun! I am sorry sometimes that I did not do more fun with the kids when they were younger but, you know, work and stuff. I realize now that it didn’t even have to be things that cost money. There are a lot of free things to do, even if it is just a trip to the park.

    This is true, Ritu. In our rush-rush lives there is never enough time.

    You have to enjoy the precious moments when they present themselves. We used to say that ATM stood got automatic teller mommy (mum). It is what you do for the next many years. That and drive.
