I have four very rambunctious playful and deeply creative children. I am constantly in awe of the worlds my children can create in their minds. The joy of far flung journeys. The characters, the adventures. But I am not the type to get down on the floor and join in the party.
It’s time to remember. Not just for my family, but for me. Or I’ll turn into some grumpy old woman I don’t recognize before I am 50. So this week we’re off for an American history adventure. Reading stories and histories, stopping for swims and parks and some time with family and friends. And instead of busily catching up on “life” on my phone, I’ll be in the mix, being present. Laughing and playing.
So excuse me, but I’ve got to go build some legos with my kids. Oh, and reality check, stop them from fighting. Have a great weekend.
