I love that you have included your son in holding you accountable for the changes you are making in being more connected to what really matters. My children are really good at keeping the Hands Free Mama in check.
They are my greatest inspiration and my greatest teachers when it comes to being Hands Free! It is really brilliant. Because you are so right … you go to do one thing on your phone and it turns into a 20 minute period of distraction. Thank you so much for taking time to share your insight!

Wonderful post with great insight, as usual. I am of the balance camp. Now, do I sneak a peak to email when they are playing, absolutely, but when we are playing together everything is off. And, the result is that my house is an utter disaster most of the time. Shawn, thank you for taking time to share. But I am OK with spending more time playing and less time cleaning and picking up.
In fact, life has never been better! I am a step mother, of an amazing 10 year old girl, I love more than I ever knew I could love a person. Not having had children of my own, I was not only a new mother, but a new mother of 7 year old. Always making family plan, day trips to the beach, walks in parks, bike rides, museums, anything to engage and interact. Me on the other hand, am a self proclaimed type A, workaholic, controlling, OCD person.
My husband some how opened my eyes to see…. As I look around my living room full of family photos and craft projects with my daughter I am so thankful. Hi Sara, what a beautiful testimony you share. And what an incredible husband you have. I know all too well the Type A, controlling tendencies … they are not easy to overcome. So I applaud you and I thank you for providing hope for me and for those who read your story. Thankyou Rachel, what a fantastic post, as it puts out there what we see everyday…………and every now and then it does not hurt for us to be brought back to think about the way we do things.
I have 2 daughters who i love to spend as much time with as possable but yes the phones are a common attachment, never with out them………. Now dont get me wrong i dont believe they do this on purpose as this sadly is the way things are now days, its also a fact that your children have grown up. Linde, I really appreciate hearing your perspective as both a mother and as a grandmother. From your insightful and heartfelt comments, I can tell you are a loving and present woman.
What a blessing you must be to your daughters and granddaughters. I am thankful you chose to share your wisdom here today. Thank you! Thank you, Rebekah!
I am so thrilled to know this post resonated with people from all walks of life. I commend you for taking an honest look at how you can be more connected to what really matters.
I would love for you to keep me posted. Thank you so much for being here! Thanks for responding to my comment. Except for in regards to my own blog, I have not been on my laptop much yay!
Thank you again for helping me see what had taken place and giving me the desire to change it! Put simply, this post changed my life. From the depths of my heart thank you for these words.
All Divine Mercy Reflections
They are truly inspiring and such a blessing to me. Oh wow. Crystal, your message touches my soul. You have confirmed the reason I share my not-so-pretty truths with the world. Thank you for this gift. I try so very hard to be fully there for my kids. I read this to my husband crying. He is so distracted and so often misses the important things because of facebook games and phone calls.
I only hope this will help him change as well. If only for the sake of our four small children.
Describing Motherhood: Quotes from the Trenches - Finding Joy
Brittany, my heart goes out to you. I am sorry that your husband is distracted and disconnected from what truly matters. I pray that your plea got through to him tonight. Your children are truly blessed to have a mother like you who wants to give them the most meaningful childhood she can. I will be thinking of you and hoping today is a day of new beginnings in your home.

Can I first off tell you I cried as i started reading this post, a few more time as I continued to read the post, then a few more and continue to tear up as I have spent my past two hours after babes went down for bed reading more and more and more of your posts. My distractions came a little differently — I became a military wife and mommy within 4 days of eachother and found myself pregnant with baby 2 when my first was only 4 months old. Thank you, Sara.
