Divided attention

I was lucky enough to be home with the napping babies when my extended family came for a visit. While it is wonderful when we are together as a whole “clan”, it was particularly special to have them all to myself without any child needing any part of my attention. Isn’t it amazing how much we can communicate to each other when our attention is not divided? With kids, internet, to do lists, jobs and meal prep, there is a rare moment when our minds are not partially elsewhere. When we find a moment to fully attend to the present moment, the result can be pretty awesome.
