It’s quite difficult to unplug in this digital world. Our family is extremely active on social media and we consciously find time to drop gadgets and phones to just talk and spend time together. That is until someone brings out a gadget again. We have hobbies like drawing, reading and painting that keeps us away from these things but as a family unit it’s hard to find something in common. We’re not the type who likes board games (Mommy is a sore loser…haha) These are some of the activities we do together: 1) Read the same books and discuss – We all got hooked on the Percy Jackson series. 2) Plant – We live in a condo and it’s a challenge but my daughter and I love checking on our babies everyday.
3) Drawing day – We spend time drawing with themes or just take time to teach each other new techniques
4) Cook – God knows we aren’t experts but we try, we really do. 5) Sing – We all love music. Bea seems to have an affinity to 80′ rock. Shocking since she’s 11 years old. We still need to keep trying. We all do. Social media can be anti-social and we just unconsciously get sucked in and the next thing you know, the day is over. For our weekend #wokeuplikethis aka #singbeforeshower, we would like to show you how our whole family unplugged through Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart”:
