My ktbunch was playing & I was sitting there w/ my mom, reading & working on some crochet. THen I began to wonder what kinds of memories my ktbunch would have of me. I remembered when my oldest was a toddler & I was his primary playmate. I never sat to the side & watched him 'play'. I always played WITH him.
What happened? Where did my energy go? When did I become a sidelines mom? I know part of it was practicality. It's kind of hard to play when you're nursing a newborn, so big brother became the primary playmate. & he is a GREAT playmate. Now, though, my primary excuse was lack of energy. I read once that 'energy breeds energy'. SO I decided to get up & play tag w/ them. I would not sit idly by & passively watch them grow up---w/ or w/o me!
Yes, I do spend LOTS of tiem w/ them on a daily basis. But I want to be more FUN.
This was a start. ;-)
Mom was w/ us. It was nice for her to 'get out'. She worked on her crochet, the weather was gorgeous, we ate a picnic lunch & took pics. I'll post one of mom & the ktbunch later...gotta run.
