Together with my child, even the simplest activity can be so interesting. We watched rain through the window, wondered why there were some bubbles over the puddle. Sometimes he asked me to lay down on floor with him just to stare at the ceiling. That is! But I never regret it. I feel happy (and I hope he does too, I can see that). I believe that time I wasted with my family is not truly wasted as long as we make each other happy.
We once watched a group of ants lost their way home, and we made up a conversation like this:
Ant One: Hey buddy, this way!
Ant Two: No, can’t you see there’s human?! This way! *turned around*
Ant Three: *did nothing*
Ant One: I sense stronger pheromones here, dude!
*Ant One and Ant Two shaking hands*
Ant Two: Nope. I’m going this way. *turned around and run*
Ant One: Bye! *went another direction*
Ant Three: *did nothing elegantly*
