There are always new tricks to learn in the long distance marathon of parenting. This Spring my kids have reached an age where they don’t always need or want me to play in their games. Some days they really do LIKE each other, which frankly blows my happy meter into overdrive. I learned something marvelous recently, “just add more kids” and they will all run, jump, sing together for hours completely uninterested in adults whatsoever. Yes, we have finally reached the fabulous stage of cooperative play. Can you say hooray, hooray! So try it out, if you don’t know this top-secret parenting trick already, borrow other people’s children for the day and grab yourself a copy of Vanity Fair, have an extra coffee, sit back and listen to the sweet sounds of fun.
Hope your aliens are enjoying the Spring flowers as much as we are.
