As a stay at home mom, I am with them 24/7. That being said, I think it is possible to be in the house with them and not really be spending time with them. Obviously I have to clean, fix meals, clean some more. But I make an effort to set aside time each day where I sit on the floor and just play with them, I turn off the TV, leave my phone in a different room, and close the computer. They have my undivided attention. I try to do this with each child individually, and with the 3 of them together. Also, I have learned even when I am busy, when they say, "Mom watch this!" I pause for a minute and truely give the my attention. I make eye contact and comment specifically on what they just did, as opposed to, "Cool." I can tell by their expression that they feel special.
