I choose to play (at you plus 2 parenting)

February 16, 2015

I’m pretty excited to share this… Before the New Year I was invited to be a part of this blog series over at You Plus 2 Parenting. I read 28 Days of Play 2014 and found myself relating and laughing, but scared. I worried about the future. I worried about the day when I wouldn’t want to play with my son. Truth? I judged. Just a little. Then I sat down to write my post.

It forced me to look, really look, at myself and my days and how I interacted with my child. I saw some things I didn’t like and, I think, I’m a better parent for it.

Before he was mobile I sat on the floor with him and alternated peek-a-boos and songs with Instagram breaks. Yes, Instagram breaks. I told myself, “it’s only a little and once he’s older I’ll stop”. Because I’m not that mom. I’m the present mom, the no screen time mom, the constantly available, but not hovering mom. Aren’t I?
