The boy and I spent almost 7 hours in Urgent Care today dealing with his wrist (end result was a cast being put on).
We had our phones and I had my kindle, but after a couple of hours the batteries died on the phones and since he was bored, reading became impossible for me.
So, we did the unthinkable in 2016 and we sat and talked. For hours. About things, and about nothing.
It was wild. Hours of time with my teen. And although he complained about the wait, I don’t think he hated it.
I think we have forgotten how to just be with each other. There’s always some distraction these days. To take all the distractions away and just spend time with a loved one – that’s a moment of happiness. Try it.
