Greedy with Time

Since July 4, 2015, I have become greedy with my time!  I know, I never thought it would happen but it has and I don't mind it one bit!

One day it'll probably change and I won't care as much but for now, I do.  

If I'm not working then you will find me hanging out with Molly Anne and Kevin if he's home from work.  I used to do a lot of happy hours with friends after work and I even used to run after work most days.  Not anymore.  That's my Molly Anne time.  If I'm not with her all day, you better believe I'm with her after work soaking up all the time I can.  

It's cool because most of my friends are in the same stage I am so they would rather be with their kids in the early evening too.  That's why our bunco nights and supper clubs start after everyone's children go to bed.  Perfect right?

And weekends....it is very rare when we commit to something that is an all day event because weekends are PRECIOUS to me.  That is our real Molly Anne and family time.  We do go out a fair amount at nights but it's usually not until between 6-7pm so we only miss an hour or two with her.  I don't think there's anything wrong with that because it's not every weekend day and because adult time is necessary too!  

Moral of the story - being a working mama, I must savor all my time with Molly Anne that I can and make it count!  And I won't apologize for not wanting to share her or saying no to some things so I can hang with her more.  

Anyone else feel the same way about time with their kiddos?!

I have always been kind of greedy about family time, even with just my husband and me. Time is the most precious commodity and you don't get it back!
