Play on a Swing Set…Seriously

If you haven’t been on a swing set in a while, take your kids to the park and hop on a swing. Doing things you used to do as a kid is a very happy thing. I think 5 minutes on a swing every day would help me be a better mother with more patience and understanding. Maybe I’ll make it a goal…

Seriously, I think swinging or engaging in other forms of carefree kid fun should be part of the food pyramid – or healthy life pyramid. Whatever. We have so much stress in our lives, we need to chill out for a few minutes each day and really let the wind mess up our hair!!! Besides, it’s good for kids to see their parents having fun and being happy.

So I’m serious!!! Walk to the nearest park as soon as possible and play on the swings. You’ll be happy you did!

We had a church picnic last weekend and we all played kick ball – wow that was so much fun – we had all ages and all sizes – anyone can kick a ball and if they are unable to run we assigned a little one to run for them. Kids games bring out the best in us adults. I agree try one daily!!!
