Wanted: FUN

My youngest has just informed me that I'm not always that much fun.

My first reaction was to list all the ways that I am fun.
Remind her just how fortunate she is to have me as a mom.
I thought of going down the there are children in the world who would love to have me as a parent road.

After collecting my thoughts, I started to smile and realized I must be doing something right. Being part of a family isn't all fun and games all the time. Although, I have to admit I would enjoy freedom to play most of the time. The dishes and laundry really aren't that much fun either. I'm a kid at heart! For now we will just have to work the balancing act. So I'm off to attend a kid led dance class in the basement!
