If there is one thing that my husband says to me more than anything else it’s “let them be kids.” I try to be that fun mom– the mom with no cares, no worries, and just letting them play and explore on their own (with safety limits, of course). I also try not to be the “helicopter” mom. I try to be a good mix. Protective but not overly worried. I want to be able to say “yes!” more often, but oh, how these kids can get so dirty. Brandon is always encouraging them to just play and get dirty and I am over on the sidelines calculating how long it is going to take me to get the stains out of their clothes.
Does this sound familiar?
I cringe when the kids want to get the art stuff out most days because I just know things will get destroyed. Mud puddles? Kryptonite to my kids. Sliding in the grass? Instant stain.
It doesn’t sound like I am a lot of fun.
I promise, I am working on this.
This summer, I plan to say YES more often. Yes to s’mores outside, yes to mud puddles, yes to sidewalk chalk, yes to grass stains, and yes to exploring in the yard. Yes to pushing them on the swings, yes to playing in the sprinkler, yes to popsicles for an afternoon snack, and yes to catching lightning bugs when it gets dark outside.
