Back before I had kids I was an all star babysitter and loved my job in the preschool near campus. I imagined I'd rock motherhood better than most.
You know those pre-kid thoughts of what you will or will not do.
When I did have kids I came to find out I have to be intentional about getting down and playing.
I have found the best way is find something you both love, for us, it's "flying"
(yes I do have a mad love for fuzzy socks)
We both have fun and end up giggling. With the older two we love playing trouble!
My encouragement to you is that if you find yourself struggling with getting down and playing, find just one thing you can both enjoy.
Other activities that we love are playing with blocks, doing puzzles, coloring, sidewalk chalk, looking at the cloud, reading, playing hide n seek and watching movies.
