My son (Gage) and one of his best friends (Danny) enjoyed a play-date today. I am good friends with Danny’s grandmother, Kathy.
It wasn’t anything fancy. Kathy and I took the boys to local parks. As well as the boys having time to run, climb, draw, and laugh, Kathy and I enjoyed catching up and spending time together.
On the way home, Gage and I talked about our day and the activities that we enjoyed the most. Gage asked me why adults don’t meet for play-dates. It got me thinking. Why don’t adults play more often? Why do we wait to engage in playful activities with children? Why are we caught up in working so much? I know there are many obligations to juggle but well-being, exercise, and taking time to enjoy life are important too.
For 2018, I intend to play and laugh as much as possible when I’m not at work. As they say, laughter is the best medicine. Maybe enjoying life is suppose to be a priority, not a luxury. ❤️
Here is a picture of the boys on their play-date.
