Real Life Play
The other day I was making bread and trying SO hard to involve my little girl. But, impatient momma as I am, I got frustrated. First I was frustrated with her head in “my” light and her fingers in the the mixing bowl. Then, I was frustrated with myself for getting frustrated! I know that children can enjoy doing real things around the house and not just playing. While she is longing to be helping and working right next to me, I want her to be there!
So, I’m working on me. This morning I read this:
Seeking Simplicity: Child’s Play is a Job Well Done by Kitchen Stewardship
In her article, this mom talked about involving her children in the daily activities of life around the house – cleaning, baking, cooking, etc. She also talked about simple play and contentment. I enjoyed it! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. This is what I long for, a simple life. Maybe one baby step at a time, I’ll get there!
