Two weeks of the new year has passed, how has it been for you? Is the rat race still on? Amongst the hustle and bustle of today’s busy society, we often tend to over commit ourselves by wanting to do just about everything and be everywhere at the same time, juggling between work, peers, family and “me” time. If we are often not making it to get-togethers, family outings, movie dates and the list goes on, then are we getting in to the habit of making empty promises a tad too often?
This year with elder two already started primary school, life surely gets even more busier. Logistic has always been a madness for me. There are days where all i have in mind is to get from place A to place B then to place C almost forgetting i have the kids in the car, rushing them around but forgotten i should use every minute i have with the kids effectively and treasure those moment even if we are stuck in the traffic jam. In fact i realised, in traffic jams we tend to have more quality time, we chat a lot more 🙂
I often see parents at the restaurant always hook with their phone while waiting for the food. Kids are either given a gadget too or being “ignored” by the parents who seems so engaged with his / her phone. Couple of times i notice the parents are on Facebook / instagram / twitter, not so much of work related. Im sure that can be put aside while u are with your kids.
Lets step up and turn things around today by making a pledge on the Kleenex® Wall of Softness – a bold new reminder that even small gestures mean a great deal to the people in your life.

To me…softness is my kids checks :). I will play WITH my kids. Yes, to play with them…not just to sit, facilitate and watch them but rather to participate along…not while on the phone / facebook / twitter / instagram and such but yes to be involved. Lets do that, fully engaged, and fully theirs. To enter their world of imagination.
The other day i found few fabrics i could make do with, sew up a mini puppet theatre for the kids. I told them to create any story, any. Their imagination were simply amazing!
