Do you have time to play?Monday, March 28, 2011
So when my youngest asked me while I was editing and revising my book, I couldn’t help but put my work on hold and attend to my first real job – being a mom!
“Mom, do you have time to play Wii Just Dance?” asked my 10yo as he touched my shoulders with his cherub-like fingers and pressed his soft velvety skin against mine.
Who can deny such cuteness?
And we laughed and decided to switch remote controls to see if the sensors were flawed.
And sure enough, this time, he beat me!
My legs reminded me that I was 46 and not 10. We took a break while he got me a glass of ice cold water.
That day, I didn’t need Tinkerbell’s gold dusts ...
I just needed to be with my little guy to deposit more happy thoughts into my memory bank!
So when we’re so busy attending to the responsibilities of adulthood, don’t forget the Peter Pan in all of us!
Have a great week!
