in nascar racing! or baseball 2007! or some other video game where a beat down is not only threatened, but often delivered!
when i walk through the door at night, it's usually to the sound of the boys (boyfriend and blake) whooping it up to some video game they're playing against eachother. they laugh. they argue. they play fair. they don't. they talk smack. they pout. they win. they lose. and so on and so forth. sometimes i come home and they're playing catch outside.. or they're fishing at the lake. my point is, they make an effort to do stuff together during that time before i get home because they both know that once mom's home- it's mom's time.
we have dinner together everynight.... which is something that boyfriend really insisted upon once we all moved in together. i truly do see how important it is to have the 3 of us at that table once a day. it's the only time that the 3 of us actually have a chance to talk- or threaten blake's life if he doesn't tell us about his day at school. that's always fun! the family that threatens together, stays together!! *swoon*
after dinner, i pretty much hog blake all to myself! boyfriend does his thing and blake and i head upstairs to either play a game, watch tv, or just be silly and goofy (which usually includes singing- badly.. and dancing). doesn't matter what we do, the whole point is that we do it together. it's our quality time.... even if it is spent watching america's funniest home videos!
we don't have blake every weekend, so i feel like we're really good about spending family time together when we do have him. like i said before, it's not really what we do- it's the fact that we do it together. it's just fun to be with eachother. mostly all we do is laugh. and good lord, we could be doing that for 20 minutes over the stupidest thing. but those are the best moments of all.
how do you spend time with your family?
