Magic time is special one-on-one time that only you as a mother can give your child.

It is about putting all the washing, cooking, cleaning and work duties to the side to spend quality one on one time with your child.

Magic time is where a child’s self-esteem will be boosted, as Mum is spending time with just me – “How special am I”! It is also a time when we can be a role-model to our children, showing them how to play, share, communicate, discuss and interact with other people.

80% of children’s learning is done through role-modelling which is a powerful tool for us Mothers to use.

Magic time does not have to be hours long or a chore for us to do. It is really all about getting our time management right to be able to co-ordinate some down time with our children. Whether it is waking up 10 minutes earlier or spending less time on social media or letting go of our need to have a perfectly cleaned house.

Your children do not care whether or not every single section of the kitchen cupboard is cleaned spotless or if their singlets are ironed! All they care about is spending time with Mum. These are the moments that they will look back upon once they are older to cherish and remember their Mum. Not if the beds were made perfectly or the cobweb underneath the TV cabinet is cleaned! It is about making those special memories and moments to last a life time with your children.

We often forget that we are only blessed to have our children with us for a short-time before they head out into the big wide world!

It goes fast, so enjoy every moment and create those special times with your children.

Leave your children a legacy of spending amazing time together rather than a legacy of having everything perfect!

How can you spell some magic time into your relationship with your children today?

  • I sometimes read the articles on MoMs and regret my past movements. I read this story and think why didn’t I do more magic for my kids? Too late now


  • its the small things in life that matter the most


  • Thanks for sharing this good article; ‘magic time’ is definitely very special.


  • Magic time is any time – and it doesn’t need to cost anything. Kids love spending time with their parents, and it is a goal of mine to do this before Miss is all too soon grown up!


  • It is surprising how much little ones aged about 2 1/2 yo remember about 3 years later.
    One little one was able to tell us absolutely everything that happened on one occasion, which long weekend it was, including the fact that it was cold and rained., also that It was hot the day before.The only place she had wrong was the location. Possibly because she thought it was the one we all went to regularly.


  • Yes very important to not forget to put aside time to spend with your child.


  • I love cuddles on the couch reading stories without the TV on! Even better if they are “reading” to me!


  • So true. Thanks for the read. Thanks for sharing.


  • My daughters loves her time with mummy. She dresses up in my shirts as dresses and follows my every move. She is 2 and i strive to be the best role model ever. She is home all day with me and says she loves me every night, The bond i always wanted with my mum but never had so i am very thankful my daughters and i share it.


  • I love spending one on one time with each of my kids, they love the special time with mum too.


  • They grow so quickly and the magic goes, they don’t want to kiss and cuddle and sit on you anymore


  • Cannot wait to have some special time with my daughter :)


  • I make sure that when my son is awake, I am readily available to play and interact, I leave my chores to the time when he is asleep. I think I will find this more challenging when number 2 arrives in November


  • Love my toddler and we do spend all day and night together ,we play with his toys and giggles on so much silly actions.i love his smile when he gave me all day and night.


  • very interesting thanks for sharing
