A Silent Bonding

I am having a "breakaway" at this time with my kids, my mum and my sisters. While typing away over here, I overheard my sister asking my son this, "Is this the way your mum is having a holiday? Always clicking on the laptop? Is she always like this?" I do not know whether to smile or feel "guilty" cos my son answered "yes" to all these questions.

Well, am I a workaholic? Or am I just a super addicted lappie mum? Whatever it is, I better stop what I am doing now. But can't they feel my presence here with them even though I am "wordless?" LOL..... OK, I think they need my real presence, not just a dummy sitting here...

  1. Seems like you're trying some family bonding while bonded to your lappie. But it's good that you acknowledge the issue. It's a start.

  3. NO. They can't. because all they know is that you are glued to your lappie. If I were your sister I can't help but think that all you care is about your computer and your internet. :/

  4. That's why I try to go online when my family is asleep. That way I can have more quality time with them.

  5. Hahaha.. me too. hubby always complains about me being glued to my lappie all the time. These 10 days since school holiday started I have been "off" the internet but have done a lot of activities with my boy. We are going for "Toy Story 3" later in the afternoon with grandma and grandpa. Yipee!!

    It was hard at first for not blogging though I still visit my favourite blogs for half an hour or so each day.;)

  6. Now I know why I can never catch up with your blog. You spend so much time on it :-). I only have time to log in and read blogs once a day and often realised that you have already posted several postings and I didn't even have time to read them all....

  15. Thank goodness no internet or blogging when your children were kids and growing up - that would be the crucial period when bonding is of utmost important.

    Now they're grown up...it isn't so bad...but always make time for family time and bonding - evenings, weekends - go out together, window-shopping, eating something nice...or spend time cooking something together...and so on. Quality time - a must in every family!

    Maybe you can go online during lunch hour...or when they're busy with their own things.
