This morning, I biked with my boys around our little village.
More accurately, Francis rode his bike and Bene rode his scooter. They flew around the block like young Arabian Racehorses. Me? I was on my sandaled feet chasing (and panting) after them. So I also felt like a horse too, but I was like those aging ones that pulled Karitellas in Quiapo and Intramuros.
But I loved it. I got sunlight. I got exercise. I got fresh air. Most importantly, I got lots of love. Because I was spending time with the boys. Gosh, what else can I ask for? (To be continued below)
Get spiritually nourished! If you live in Metro Manila, join me each Sunday at the FEAST. It’s the happiest place on earth. I preach God’s Word to you there. Choose between 3 sessions: 8am, 10:30am, and 1pm. It’s at Valle Verde Country Club (Beside ULTRA) in Pasig. Be so inspired, you’d wonder how you lived without the FEAST. It’s FREE attendance! See you this Sunday. For more information, call Tel. 725-9999 or email email@example.com.
After I write this blog, I’ll join the brood downstairs. I’ll slip in a VCD of Jurasic Park in our player. My wife Marowe is now cooking buttered popcorn and she’ll give each of us a giant bowl. The boys will sit on the floor and my wife and I will plop on the couch behind them. While we munch popcorn, we’ll see dinosaurs munch people. (Hmm, maybe we should watch something else…)
Here are a few other favorite things we do together:
· I doodle with the little guys. Francis loves to draw roller coasters and Bene loves to draw fun caricatures of the family.
· I sit on the floor and play cars, planes, and trains with them—whatever their flavor of the month is.
· I play 15 minutes of video games with Bene everyday. (We only allow him to play for 30 minutes a day.) Obviously, he beats me every single time.
· I read books to them, especially before sleeping. This is something they both love. Or sometimes we just make up stories together out of thin air.
People ask me, “How do you get the time to do all these?”
Easy. I don’t do certain things. Like I don’t watch TV. And I don’t surf the net for entertainment.
Friends, do you spend enough time with your kids?
Share to the world your activities by writing at the comments below. Inspire others. Here’s my belief: When parents spend time with their kids, we solve a lot of problems in the world.
May your dreams come true,
