I Refuse to be My Kids’ Fun Coordinator — And You Should Too, Mama

And, admit it. Kids are better at having fun than we are. I climb on my bathroom counter and pluck stray hairs when I want to have a good time, or I sit quietly in my car…like, I just sit there and literally do nothing, and they do things like use a laundry basket as a canoe and fish for sharks in the ocean using curly ribbon and shoes.

They win at knowing how to play every time, so never let yourself fall into the trap of feeling guilty for letting them do it.
