Honor Mom with a #SocialBlackout (Sponsored)

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom CentralConsulting for MetLife. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

As many of you I’m sure can imagine. A large portion of my day is spent plugged in. There is time spent writing posts, networking, editing photos, replying to emails etc. Then I leave the house and find myself snapping photos via Instagram, checking in on foursquare. And, well, you get the picture. It’s for these reasons I can’t be shocked at how much time my own children spend plugged into technology.

As much as I love how far we’ve come in most areas of technology, and how grateful I am for the various opportunities technology has presented to me. I can’t help but miss the days of real human interaction. I am also sad that my kids will never know what is like to stay up all night talking to your best friend, to ride your bike around the block just for fun and to simply enjoy being outside for as long as Mom will let you.  

#SocialBlackout

This year I’m joining the MetLife #SocialBlackout and am opting to unplug in honor of Mom and hoping my children will do the same for me. Instead of sitting around with our phones and tablets in hand, This Mother’s Day will be spent spending time together. We'll be playing games outside, enjoying some BBQ, visiting the beach, and more importantly, simply enjoying each other. This year I pledge that there will be no texting friends, pinning recipes, or updating our statuses.

Just one day of interrupted family time is all this Mom wants – well maybe that and a nap.  I hope you’ll join me in the taking MetLife’s Social Blackout “challenge” and devote you time, Sunday, May 12th to Mom.

Lovely campaign! I always go "off grid" for holidays and trips, far more important to enjoy your family and the experience!

Great idea! I think I'll follow your example and make sure there are no devices with any of us at tour annual Mother's day meal.
Thanks for sharing!
