Wise Words – Time, Not Money

If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them and half as much money.

I have always loved this quote, but I think it is especially fitting as we enter the holiday season.  Our time truly is the best gift that we can give our children.  This can keep our hearts AND our wallets happy.  🙂

When I was working outside of the home, it bothered me that I didn’t have as much control over the QUANTITY of time that I could give to my children.  However, I realized that I needed to focus on what I could control, which was the QUALITY of the time we spent together. This is still something that I work hard at, even now that I am not working outside of the home.  That is at the heart of Mommy Standard Time – – saving time on those routine tasks of life that often take away from the time that we have available to savor.

The goal of my blog is to help us increase both the quantity AND quality of time that we spend with our families.  One tip at a time.
