Do as I say, not as I do!

August 30, 2011
The kids are playing outside all the time. They look filthy as pigs, but who cares. Right now they're shooting a movie featuring my youngest son Piet as Indiana Jones, and my middle son Ot as the villain.

My mommy cup runneth over! They're using their imagination and getting lots of exercise in the great outdoors. They're not sitting passively behind computer- and tvs-creens, munching unhealthy snacks.

Could I wish for anything more?
I think not!

My work here is obviously done. So if anybody needs me, I'll be lying on the couch watching yet another rerun of Friends while crunching through a bag of potatoe chips. And afterwards, I'm thinkin: a game of Pacman?!

  10. Kenmei, I wish I could say it was due to my great parenting skills, but if I'm honest I just lucked out.

  11. Hi there- Visiting from VB Members to Remember....love your blog posts- you are so funny! We just returned from the beach and it was great to watch all of the kids active and engaged with the outdoors- there is nothing like it....that's another place for good chats with hubbys, btw....you stand between them and the shore and they have nowhere to run....or swim for that matter :) Enjoy your week!
