This week I outlined a workday routine, and gave it a try.
It will take some trial and error to make this schedule our new norm, but one piece in particular is pretty much the awesomesauce of this whole routine relaunch.
And that is 9:00 to 11:00, phone off, uninterrupted playtime only.
Yesterday, during our uninterrupted playtime, the boys and I were playing knights. Next thing I know, the boys are stripping down to underwear only and morphing into cyclops.
Right. Cyclops. Loincloth. Got it.
I was supposed to be playing with the boys, but I couldn’t help but sit back and observe. Those little imaginations were running wild. And it was wonderful to see.
The rest of the day was business as usual, but boy was it refreshing to tune out the world for a bit to simply focus on play!
