Let Them Have Fun
went to a pumpkin patch over the weekend. Bounce houses, wagons, hay
mazes, wooden cut outs of characters, hay rides, barrel trains, all
sorts of fun.
Sadly, there were many kids not having fun;
crying as their parents pulled them away from what they wanted to be
doing in order to get them to do something else "really fun".
I think it's something we all have been caught up in before. We want
to make sure our kids get to do everything at whatever fun place we've
taken them, and we lose sight of how much fun they already ARE having.
A challenge for everyone, myself included- next time we take the kids
somewhere, don't focus on seeing/doing everything. Instead focus on
enjoying the present moment with them.
