How to Connect When You’ve Only Got 10 Minutes

Life sure can get busy...


We don’t always have time alone,

For just the two of us to connect.

To play a board game —

Or to go for a hike —

To cook a meal together —

We don’t always have time to let our toes snuggle under the blanket while we watch a movie, and talk about nothing and everything…

1:1 time with our daughters is a precious commodity, right?

And some weeks — like perhaps this busy one in mid-October 😉 — there’s just not a lot of time for 1:1 connection without homework, siblings, work, and errands getting in the way…

SO: how do we really connect when we haven’t got a lot of time?

This episode is for the rushed weeks, the packed weeks, the going-full-tilt weeks! (they happen to all of us!!!)

Mama, today I’d like add another tool to your Mothering & Daughtering toolbox:
