What I Read- Hands Free Mama

have been "reading" a lot of audio books lately on my commutes to and from work.  I am in the car over an hour each day so a good audio book really helps pass the time.

I just finished Hands Free Mama by Rachel Macy Stafford. She really talks about putting away the distraction and soaking up the precious moments with our loved ones that we too often miss because we are busy on our phones and ipads or too focused on marking things off the to-do list and getting everything done instead of stopping to take in those moments with our family that we will never get back.  While there were several things she said that I wish I could've jotted down, one really stood out to me.  She recommended taking a certain time each day to put away all the distractions (especially the phone) and focus only on your kids and husband.  She reminded me just how quickly my girls will grow up and how I will never get that time back! 

I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles with balancing their time or who often catch themselves with their eyes glued to their phone more than to their kids.  She has some great ideas on how to break free from the distractions and live a more hands free life!  Really makes you realize what all your are missing out on when we waste our time with all the unimportant and wasteful moments of our lives.. especially when those times take time away from our kids!
