I know it won’t be long before my ten-year old doesn’t want to play dress up or play with her toys. However, she re-discovered her favorite costume the other day, and I loved seeing her parade around the house in it. It is important to not make our kids grow up so fast. This time is so short. Please remember that play time and pretend time help your kids grow. They need this time to be creative. I know that, as parents, we are often caught in this rat race of trying to make our kid the best and the brightest. We put our kids in so many activities and exhaust their minds. However, sometimes, we need to take a step back from the rat race. We need to forget what society says. We need to let our kids pretend and play. We need to let them be creative. There is time for tests and studies, but creativity helps our kids become well-rounded human beings.

I love this time for my children. I know it is so short. I already have one that has pretty much put all his toys away. However, I am not eager to push for my kids to grow up. I want them to explore and play. It is such a small time!
