After we dropped Robby at school, Timmy and I headed to an indoor playground. He ran, climbed, swung and jumped for almost three hours. He squealed with laughter playing with new friends and I found myself giggling along when I joined the fun. By the time we were ready to leave, we were both sweaty, winded and smiling from ear to ear.
We came home for lunch, to rest for a bit and for me to get a little bit more work done. After a few hours we were ready to go pick up Robby from school to ferry him to the gym for his "gamer's fitness" class. While Robby was playing at the gym, Timmy and I decided to make the most of the gorgeous weather by spending the hour at the park.
I love days when I can completely disconnect, unwind and just have fun with Timmy. I know all too well that he will be grown up before I am ready, and I need to make the most of these opportunities. I don't like getting up early, but in this case the payoff was worth the sacrifice. I am going to try to use my morning times productively so I can have more free time to explore and play with my kids. It's good for them, and it is most certainly good for me as well!
