As the summer time is becoming too intense, children love to get outside to run and play. I used to hate to see my daughter all covered up in sweat and smells really terrible for the entire day because she’s been playing with her friends. But now I let her play all she wants and sweat all she can. Well, I suppose this is what summer is all about, right?
I could still remember back when I was a kid, I also go out all day to spend playing with my cousins and friends and my mom freaked out looking at the mess that we did. And now, history repeat itself. I’m the mom and I have kids in my house messing everything around! But what the heck, it’s one of the best things about being a mom! The cleanup and the dirty clothes mean happiness, the messy house and the sticky floor are a benediction!
Her morning starts very early. After having breakfast and a shower, she just starts right out of the house and play. Sometimes she invites friends to come over and they will bet anything that they can conceive of. Chinese garter, playhouse, cooking sessions using leaves and blossoms as their menu and even playing mommy and baby. I simply enjoy catching them having fun and the giggles are so nice to discover. I only wish I could be a kid once more.
But I’m the mom now, and the reality is, I have the best of both worlds. Having a fantastic time with my daughter and living the dream that I never imagined possible, having a wonderful family. Letting the children play is the best thing that you can do to them. Have them be free from all the trouble and stress and let them experience how marvelous it is to be a kid.
