As I potter around the house, Ruby and Max play.
I wash the dishes. They play with their dolls.
I fold the clothes. They unfold playsilks to make doll hammocks.
I sweep the floor. They build a house from the playstands and playsilks.
My purposeful work allows them to deepen into their play.
It allows them to learn through imitation.
I check my email.
Their play stops and within moments they are beside me.
How did they know!
A sweet and simple, yet sometimes frustrating reminder.
They want me to be present.
And so, we re-connect and continue through our day.
Blessings mamas, Kelly
