Sandcastles, Forts and Ice cream.
If I were age 6 for a day, then I would play with my son, who is 5 years old from sunrise to sunset.
One of my biggest goals in life is to play with him, as if I were a child anyways, feeding his imagination and creativity as much as I possibly can.
I would build Forts, eat Ice Cream all day with him and for sure take a midday trip to the beach and build a sandcastle that we could both sit in, because I would be small again and his size.
I would play with him in the parks and beaches and explore nature and find bugs and hold them in our hands. We would look at birds and seals on the beach and make rock sculptures and forts of driftwood.
We would go swimming in the community pool and play like children should. Share secrets and be friends as equal size if only for a day.
If I were 6 again, yes, I am sure that I would want to play with Elijah. I am sure that I would love to play with him and imagine all sorts of fun games to play all day.
Yes, that surely would be a great thing to be 6 years old and get to play with my son, but since I am not I try to just channel my inner child each day, and put myself in his shoes.
I try to play with him each and every day now, and I feel like a better mom, by doing it, even if I am not 6 anymore.
