Don’t be fancy. Just be.

Don’t be fancy, just be!

I am seeing endless posts from sweet parents who are trying to do everything they can to keep their young children stimulated. Pinterest is full of ideas but also full of ways to make a parent feel like they just are not enough.

Let me tell you, you are more than enough for your babies. You don’t need to look up a bazillion ideas that involve tons of work.

Make Playdoh, make a bakery out of mud pies and get the earth squished between your fingers and toes, have a water fight or a pillow fight or a tickle fight, read a book and snuggle, cook together, fill the sink with soapy suds and spray dishes with Catsup so your kids can clean them off,, Go for a scavenger hunt or just go for a walk, blow bubbles,, paint with shaving cream….so much to do!

Breathe and enjoy them. Pretty soon they will be 15 and 18 and you are going to be tickled every time they choose to engage!

You are sufficient, you are more than enough. Find your inner child and play. The messier, the better!
