How I love living in a world where building blocks can become drums and dry-erase markers and screwdrivers become drumsticks! Tonight I was serenaded by the sweet sound of my husband, Sean, and my three year old, Layla, drumming away to “Come Sail Away” by Styx!
All I can say is I love the world of wonder and imagination that kids live in!…and we as moms have the privilege of joining them in that little world.
I was cleaning up dishes from dinner and doing random pick-up around the house when I was drawn to the living room by the contagious excitement and fun being had on the homemade drums! =)My hubby and Layla pounded away and I couldn’t resist joining in to sing at the top of my lungs, “Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!” I needed that!
Sometimes, especially after a long day, I need to be distracted from my responsibilities and duties to just have fun. It’s usually times like that that I hear Layla say, “Mommy, you’re silly!” But you know what? She didn’t say that tonight! Maybe she’s getting used to my silliness =).
If you have any fun moments from this week that you’d like to share about you and your kiddos, please leave a comment! Sweet dreams!
