    Jay,
    I’m late reading this blog; nonetheless your comments really grabbed me. I couldn’t agree more, the one-on-one time I have with my kids is often the best part of my day. My kids are still young enough that they insist I lie with them each night as they drift off to sleep (I’m guessing it’s a veiled attempt to stay up longer, but I’m happy to play the charade). It’s during these few minutes that we often have our best connection. I try to have a story for them each night, something anecdotal that has occurred that day, that will get them engaged. Often if works, but sometimes it’s really just a matter of asking questions, and then as you say: really listening. Thanks again!

      It’s really a tender time of the day which is why I love it so much. I often use this time to tell them how much they mean to me – how great I think they are as little people. I knew I wasn’t the only one who did this. Thanks for sharing, Gord.
