Carpool is a big deal for me. When I take my boys to school, I like to be there with them. And I mean really be there. Some of the best conversations happen before they step foot out of my car and right when they plop themselves in the seat at the end of the day. And I’m not gonna miss it. Because of that, I’ve made a rule for myself: No talking on my cell phone during carpool. Many a time I’ve had to abruptly end conversations with people, even my husband, as I pull into the school parking lot. But, that is just the way it’s going to be. And I make no apologies for it. They’re my boys. So. Do you have any non-negotiables in your life? Some act that you do for you, for your family, for your children? I’d love to hear.
