It is that time of year when we all get Spring fever. The days are getting longer. The temperature is rising. You look outside your window and wish you were doing just about anything outside rather than sitting at your desk. Some days it is nearly impossible to concentrate, especially if you have a view of a park or other area where you can watch people sitting outside and enjoying themselves.
And as a parent, it is that much more difficult. Not only do we want to take advantage of the nice weather, but we want to enjoy it with our children. Take them to the park. Go for a walk. Play on the swings. Run around playing different games. Whatever it is, your children will enjoy the time with you. Just spend some time doing something and enjoying the fresh Spring air.
Spending time with our children is exactly why we became parents. As far as our children are concerned, it can be doing pretty much anything (especially depending on the age). I am constantly preaching about how fathers needs to make time for their children and families. Spring provides us with that perfect opportunity - warm weather, longer days, and even some holidays thrown in when we do not have to work. Whatever activity you choose, just do something.
