Many mothers believe that the single most important activity you can do with your children is to read to them at night, help them with schoolwork to make sure they get good grades, or make sure they are always nearby. …
Hmm... blogging is usually what I do on my downtime from family, work, and school. So, I would say most of my time is with my kids when not blogging. We live close to a lake and park, so we go there a lot. Plus we are in the mountain area of our city so we spend time roaming the mountains and climbing trees.
it's definitely READING for me. when i wasnt blogging yet, i could finish a book in a few hours. now, with blogging and parenting, i could only snatch a couple of hours before bedtime, because i would usually find myself tired from all day's work and doze off easily. playing with my son is a routine, so there's no tug of war between the two when i'm off blogging :)
I love to cook so along with that I like to look through recipes and come up with new ideas. I also love to read and garden. I guess I spend a good portion of my free time blogging but I try to keep time for my other interests just to stay balanced.
