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.
