I was listening to a podcast the other night and Dr Gary Chapman was a guest on the show. If you don't recognize his name, he's the author of "The Five Love Languages" and countless other books.
He mentioned in the podcast that you can usually tell a childs love language by the time they are 4. Instantly I knew Grayson's love language was quality time. I suddenly realized all the times he was asking us to play a game with him, sit down and build with him, and sit and read were his way of looking for love.
Today both Wesley and Blake went down for a nap at the same time. When I told Grayson I could play playdoh with him, his face LIT up. I was filling his love tank. .
Quality time is important with any kid but when that's your childs love language, it's even more important to be aware of the little moments they're asking for.
If you've never heard of the five love languages or need a refresher course, just google it, there's online quizzes and summaries at your fingertips! I am a big believe in the importance of knowing not only your love language but the languages of those your closest to. Everybody receives love differently and the way you give love matters❤
