I am not exaggerating when I say that we cannot do without this designated Family Time now. It is sacred and precious, and requires nothing but showing up. I had no idea anything about parenting could be this easy.

I’ve learned to rest instead of trying to look the part of a mom who has it all together. I watch a movie with my children while we cuddle on the couch. I ignore a sink full of dirty dishes. I shut my eyes for a nap.
