Encouragement for moms...PLAY !

 

 

 

 

 

 

Charlotte Mason on Play…
It might just surprise you what she had to say !

“Let the mother go out
and PLAY !”
 

Charlotte Mason understood a lot about children….she also understood a lot about moms.  I found this to be some advice I need to take to heart!

“If mothers could learn to do for themselves what they do for their children…we should have happier households.

Let the mother go out to play!

If she would only have courage to let everything go when life becomes too tense,
and just take a day, or half a day, out in the fields, or with a favourite book,
or in a picture gallery looking long and well at just two or three pictures,
or in bed, without the children,
life would go on far more happily for both children and parents.” 
~Charlotte Mason

Let the mother go out to play !

Don’t you just love those words ?
Children have no trouble playing.
Fun is pulsing through their veins and wiggling out of every limb.
Play just comes naturally to them.
If left alone long enough, children invent the most wonderful games and fantastic stories.
Creativity and imagination are limitless, emotions are being worked out,
FUN is happening !
Think about it…kids generally don’t return from playing outside all stressed out!  🙂

When was the last time that YOU went out to play mom ?
Go Play Mom !

It takes some courage . . .
Follow your dreams mamas !

Follow your dreams Mamas!

Mamas, don’t ever forget to keep following your dreams.
You’ll inspire your children to dream.

Keep practicing the things that bring you joy.
You’ll encourage your children to try too.

Keep asking yourself what you want to be when you grow up.
You will give your children a living example
to always keep growing
tall and true
with courage.

Wishing you a lovely Wednesday!   🙂

Curiosity

“The important thing
is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity
has its own reason for existing.
One cannot help but be in awe
when he contemplates the mysteries
of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.
It is enough
if one tries merely to comprehend
a little of this mystery every day.
Never lose a holy curiosity.”

‒ Albert Einstein
