fun - noun - something that provides mirth or amusement As a working mom who tries to play wife, mom, friend, and so many other roles, I often forget about that one little word...fun. I make the mistake of telling myself that there will be time for fun when the work is over. When the house is clean. When my tasks for work are done. When my daughter is finally clean and in bed. When the bathroom is scrubbed. When the dinner is cooked. When the dishes are done. When the bed is made. When the emails are returned. When the meeting is over. When everything is in its place.
I hope that resonates with someone else - or I will have to admit that I have lost my mind and no one else feels like this. I don't think that is true, but I have been wrong on a few others things...we can talk about that later. The point is this: I have a three year old and she is constantly having fun. She gets excited showing me how she can spin around on one foot. I don't want to give her the obligatory, "That is awesome, honey," I want to actually enjoy it and have FUN WITH her!
In conclusion today, here is the challenge. Have fun. Everyday. Take note of what provides you mirth or amusement and share it. I look forward to sharing what has been fun in my day...I hope you will share yours as well!
