Sometimes you just have to get down on the kiddos level and play with not. Not watch them. Not make them play something you want to do. Get down on their level and play with them!
Last year at this time we were a couple days away from heading down to Florida to go to Disney World. Truth is as much as I was looking forward to it, I was also dreading it. I didn’t have energy. I was always in pain. But I wanted to be with them. I wanted to play with them. I wanted to go on the rides with them!
So that is exactly what I did. I was in pain. I was playing with them. I was on their level. I was swimming with them. I walked with them. I smiled through it all.
It was a great time. It was fun and exciting and it will never be forgotten.
How awesome would it have been though if I had not be in pain?! If I had been able to play like a kid, on their level and still be smiling and it not being a fake or forced smile?!
Here I am this year playing with my kiddos and it is nothing like it was a year ago! Those are real smiles. Those are real laughs. There was no stunt doubled used in the filming of that! It was all me.
They loved that I was doing what they were doing. They continue to ask for us to go back and do it again. They loved that mommy was playing like a kid on the playground with them! I loved doing it for them.
Sometimes the best thing you can do for your kids, is to be a kid and to play with them. Get down on their level. Get down and play with them. Have fun with them. Do the things they love to do and do it with them.
You will never regret doing things with your children, for your children and for yourself. Talk about being the sunshine in your day! My children have always been my sunshine and now I am hoping God has blessed me so that I am their sunshine!
PS – not only is it great to do that to create memories with your children it is also great exercise for you! Get your workout in while you create memories – nothing is better and more priceless than that!
