TAP Tip no.60 – Incorporate them into YOUR life! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

DON’T GIVE UP *YOUR* PASSIONS!!! Don’t give up on what gives YOU a zest for life! What keeps you ticking. What truly makes you happy, or what truly *made* you happy BEFORE kids! πŸ™‚ You owe it to yourself to schedule that stuff in! You owe it to your marriage, you owe it to your kid(s), for it makes you a better, happier mom/wife/dad/husband/etc. And quite honestly, it’s only fair for how much of your life has and will continue to revolve around their schedules — sleep schedules, dance schedules, soccer schedules…etc etc βšΎοΈπŸ€βš½οΈπŸπŸ’πŸ₯…πŸ“š 

Sunday funday! This Sunday, we finally tried it and took our 2yr old with us to the indoor Winter version of our nicer weather outdoor ultimate frisbee game. We took him a bunch as an infant, and always to the outdoor game in nicer weather, but this was the first time he was at this indoor game in almost 2yrs! And he actually loved it!!! And so did we. πŸ™‚ 

Yes, it meant we each sat out at different times. Yes, it required that we play with him and interact when on the sidelines. But it gave us TWO solid hours of nonstop sprinting, and so it was soooooooo worth it. Don’t let thoughts about what “might be” stop you from trying ANYTHING with your Little Ones. Yes, it takes some creativity (certain snacks, toys, etc), but if our 2 year old can sit for 2 straight hours on narrow sidelines… lots is possible. πŸ™‚
