Take Time to Play in the Sprinklers

Ever feel like all you do is work, and then more work? Do you watch your children playing and laughing, longing to have the days of childhood back?

I had what seems like the longest week and realized that summer is almost over. I need to laugh and play with my son like I did when I was a child. Who says you can't be silly when your 41 years old?

Today we played in the sprinklers at the Post Office.

Not planned, just a totally random thing. We went to check the P.O. Box and he noticed that the sprinkler was broken and shooting water all over. I looked at him and said, "You're already in your swimsuit ..."

Today my son and I laughed.

Today we rocked out in the car to Taylor Swift on Radio Disney. Music blasting, windows down, singing our hearts out. She wears high heels, I wear sneakers, she's cheer captain, and I'm on the bleachers ...

Today we played.

Today I was a child.

And I loved every minute of it.

When was the last time you played in the sprinklers?
