My mother enjoys life and lives it to the limit. I learned the importance of fun from her. The times we spent playing tennis, swimming, going on adventures, traveling, singing, dancing, roller skating, etc., are fused into my memory with joy and cannot be erased by time. I want my children to remember their childhood as a time of shared experiences that were enjoyable.
As homeschool moms, so much of the time with our children is spent doing household chores, homeschooling, and taking them to extracurricular activities, that there is little time left to enjoy together. My simple tip today is to remember to have fun with your children. Sing, laugh, play the never-ending game of Monopoly, create Lego contraptions, draw pictures, go on scavenger hunts, and dress up with them. The options are as limitless as your imagination.
Remember, time with our children at home is a precious commodity. It seems like a moment and they are grown and gone. So, go play with your kids!
