Adventure Challenge – Day 63: Play Like a Kid

I love being a mom. Mostly I love being able to have a reason to act like a big kid again. My son turned 6 this week and it is such a fun age. We get to explore, play, and he is still full of inhibition. 

My brother called and asked if he could come hang out for the day. He has two little girls, ages 2 and 5. I absolutely adore my nieces. We didn’t have to do anything extraordinary or crazy. We just went to the park. The day was filled with laughter, playing, giggles…and at the end of the day I reached my goal…wearing the kids down until they took a nap. 

Go play with some kids, act like a kid, and remember what it’s like to just play. I love the pure joy that children exude when they are absolutely in the moment.

About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
