The other day I decided to stop everything I was doing, load up my kids and head out to the beach. While I do try to balance my time working and having fun with my kids, sometimes I just need to divert from my schedule. This is what I did that day.
I announced to my kids that they needed to stop what they were doing, get their swimsuits on and get ready to leave for the beach in 15 minutes. They were slightly astonished because this is out of my normal character, but it was the best thing I have done in a long time.
