Usually when I come home from work, the boy will ask if I can play with him. I always say yes, but invariably, life and homemaking duties get in the way. There’s dinner to cook, the lazy pups to tend to, housecleaning, “work” work to catch up on, and before you know it, it’s time for bath time and bed time.
Last night, the boy asked, “Can you play with me?” I said, Of course. He said, “You always say yes, but then you don’t.” So, after dinner, I dropped whatever I was doing, got down on the floor, and played with the boy for nearly two hours. Best two hours spent of my day.
