(The TIL acronym stands for Things I’ve Learned, which will be a series in the days to come about things I’ve learned this past year.)

One of the most important things I’ve learned this year in regard to the kiddos is that there really is no such thing as “quality time”…a term likely coined by someone to compensate for the guilt felt for not spending enough time with his/her kids. There is only quantity.

Yes, I still do special dates with them on occasion, but in the end the “fun” times won’t matter if you aren’t there for the mundane and routine.
