Basically, she just encouraged us to get out there and play. And to use our kids as an excuse to have fun.
She's right, you know. Play -- just for fun play, not "supervising" or "brain-building" play -- unleashes your creativity.
And as much as I love my screens, physical play is better than virtual. Your body has to get into it!
So as soon as I got off the plane, I had some lunch and we took the kids to park. Where I tried to teach the boys hopscotch. They weren't interested, but I was, so I played.
It was fun. I need to do that more often.
How often do you play?
