Just for today, tell your kids: I’ll forget about my to-do list and take you to the park.  I will silence the cell phone, turn off the computer, and have a tea party with you.  Just for today, I will cancel my golf game and throw the football with you in the backyard.  I will skip my favorite TV show and snuggle beside you for hours.  Just for today, I will let you stay up late so we can sit outside, gaze at the moon, and count the stars.  Just for today, I will think about the parents who no longer have their children, and I will be grateful I have you, just for today.  If you need more ideas, here are tips on how to spend time with your kids.
