This past week has been really busy at Small Potatoes. The Halloween Round-Up took a lot out of this girl. I feel like I’ve spent every waking hour working. All work and no play makes a mama cranky.
As I was looking through my photos for today’s Hashbrowns, I came across this one from the summer. My boy was filling up the umbrella with the hose and then tipping it up over his head. He did this over and over again, laughing at himself each time. He was having fun.
And a little fun is good for the soul.
I think we forget sometimes, as grown-ups, to play…to let go of the day’s work and get our umbrellas out and pour cold hose water over our heads.
“These things are fun and fun is good.” Wise words from the good doctor.
Mamas. Go play.
I know you play everyday with your wee ones. But try playing without them sometimes. Play at what makes your mind flourish. Painting a picture? Climbing a tree? Scouting out the perfect photograph on a crisp fall morning adventure? Having your feet scrubbed and nails painted at the local spa? Spending a guilt-free 1/2 hour on Pinterest? Getting out of the house and grabbing an ice cream cone all to yourself? Seeing that movie you’ve been wanting to see?
Whatever it may be.
If you never did it you should.
These things are fun and fun is good.
Now get outta here and go play.
Thanks for stopping by!
