That was Austin this evening, as Brad cooked us dinner and I struggled to find enough energy to sit down with Austin in his playroom. (We are all fighting bad colds). I figured I could sit with him while he played, check Instagram and Facebook, when he hit me with that line.
Coincidentally, Ali Edwards (aliedwards.com) posted about this very thing on her blog today. (Ironically I'm on my phone posting this from my bed, so I'm not sure how to link to her post).
If there ever was a wake up call that I'm too connected, this is it. Things need to change. I just wish I knew how to unplug. I like being connected. But I do not like that it's so noticeable my 2 year old is telling me to put the phone down.
I'll try. For his sake, I'll try. I'll try not to answer every email that pops up right away. I'll try to cut back on Candy Crush. And I'll try to put the phone down and play more often.
Baby steps. It doesn't have to all be at once. I just need to start.
Thanks for the push, Austin.
