Improving today - quality time and quantity time

How I'm improving today:

Spending the day with Charlie, with a mind to both quality and quantity of time.

We started off our Saturday morning with this list of chores. Note that he's a great kid, but he's normal, which meant he objected to doing chores – strenuously.

And, just as I'd hoped, he then put equal if not more effort into doing those chores. Including dumping the compost into the big, disgusting bin in the underground parking garage.

The fact is that once this kid gets going on a task, he, like his dad, puts everything into it. 

Next, we had lunch, including dessert, and now we're heading out to see a movie in the movie theatre.

Charlie chose the movie, "Nut Job"
A special occasion indeed.

What you can do to improve today:
Hang out with a family member: your kid, your mom, your dad, your partner, your sibling, your aunt. Spend not just quality time, but quantity.

It improves the day for you (I've received three hugs today already, omg!), but also for your person.

Hope you all come up with a nice way to improve today.

Update: If your kid begs you to climb up with him on all of the gigantic snow hills, do so. Especially when he tells you, "Mom, it'll make you feel like you're on top of the world!"
