Playing with the children is not my strong suit. I am the mom: the soother, the educator, the cook, the helper, the disciplinarian, the task master.
Dad is the fun one.
But today, we went with Ben, Anne, Natalie, and Lincoln and took the kids fishing. And I played. And I fished. And I had a really good time. (Oh, and the kids had fun too!)
I don't know why I don't play more. It really was fun just to be focused on the kids, living in the moment and not worried about the house or anything else.
It helped that we weren't actually at home.
It was SO much fun that I think we might actually do it again!
And who knows, maybe I'll leave Dad to take care of the house and baby a little more often so that I can be known the fun one!
P.S. ALL these fish (can you see them?) and did we catch a stinkin' thing? Not one!
