September 28: eXactly as it should be.
I got the chance to watch my kids play with other kids last weekend, something I don’t often experience. Usually, that interaction happens at school or when I am busy orchestrating a birthday party or playdate. But this weekend, I sat and watched my children and their friends organize a relay race that included sprints, squats, push-ups, and even a medal ceremony. It reminded me so much of when I was a kid: my nose pink from the wind, my ankles tickled by the grass, my chest aching from laughing and running and laughing some more. Simply put, it was childhood, eXactly as it should be.

And, yes, that’s my daughter running in a tutu!

  1. That is exactly how it should be. Kids neet to be able to play and have fun.
    Great X word.

  2. I think you are a wonderful mom for letting your daughter run and play in a tutu. Princess (my baby who is now in college) has her own style and she would never wear matching socks as a child…she still doesn’t.

  3. It’s great that you got to witness all that fun!

  4. Oh, to be young again! 🙂
