I’m just now starting to get in my groove. It’s feeling like play.
When I’m scooping (dog) poop, slinging the wee one, leashing the dog, and singing “Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood” for Isaac — all at once — I know that mama-multi-tasking. Yesterday I held a sleeping babe and pitched and hit baseballs all at once. My gym teacher said that softball was important way back when. She was right.
We “mow” the lawn with our bubble mower and follow the same lawn rituals as Daddy. We make gargantuan bubbles with our new bubble sword. We play “Freeze” and “Follow the Leader.” We make pom-pom “gardens” on a paper plate for Jimmy from H.R. Pufnstuf. We throw sand. We find sticks. We pick dandelions.
All in all, we play. 😀
