My Growing Son...QT pays off

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Watching him play on the playground at a local park felt so refreshing.
I marveled at his calm, playful spirit...
Reminded me of my innocent childhood when I'd enjoy the solitude of playtime.
The swings...whoosh! Higher in the air...imagining the top of roofs as I sat atop the high side of life (of course I was still on the swing)...
He jumped off and bolted for the Jungle Gym! Yeahhhhh!!!!

I closed my folder of half-graded papers and focused on him.
The darkness began to creep in...I watched as he smiled and relished in his imaginative play just like I used to do...

Broke my heart to tell him it was time to go. I explained how it's not safe for a mother and her son to be alone in darkness. Not all people come to the park to play and enjoy the area.

He understood and asked when we'd do it again.
I told him the 2 weeks of Christmas break would allow us more time to play outside.

Next time, no grading papers! ---- Note to self...

I know he'll only be nine for a brief time period, so I have to make the time worthwhile so when he becomes a father, he'll remember how his mom made Sunday fun before school the next day.

Yes. QT with my youngest child pays off...

    And watching kids- it all makes sense how they can seem to eat and eat as they grow because a) they keep growing and b) they move like little tornadoes! Watching my friend's 2 yr old run around yesterday tired me out. lol
