On Sunday, I got into a little game of hopscotch. Actually, it wasn’t so little — the board went up to 24!
Being outside in the crisp air, sharing laughs with GL, and really concentrating on my hops, skips and jumps was a nice way to remind myself –I need to do this more.
All work without play not only makes me a boring mom…
It makes me miss out on a well deserved opportunity to connect to my soul.
So whether it’s taking 20 minutes to have a private dance party (one of my faves!). Or a whole morning to lounge around with your favorite book–
Keep it loose. Don’t stress about what you should be doing.
Just have a little fun.
The sign that you’ve entered playtime; you’re smiling on the inside and out.
