I discovered the joy of sending my kids outside today! It's funny, I think back to when I was a kid and I remember very little time being spent inside and now, with my own kids, I find I'm always worried about it being too cold, or too hot, or too wet, or or or.......they have a playroom and I guess it's just easier to send them downstairs and know everything they are doing, I know, worst mom ever, right? Today, however, it was so nice, I had the windows open, and I just sent them out. They were thrilled to go out! They actually spent the majority of the time today outside, playing...with each other........and no one got hurt. It's a shame I have not know this joy before......my kids were OK being kids and I'm OK too.....wow. I know you're thinking, wow, this woman has issues........you're right. Does anyone else fear the 'outside' world for their kids? Did my mother fear the outside? In my opinion, no, but maybe she just hid it better? Oh well, in any case, I have determined that outside is just fine and I don't have to be on them every second and they are fine! Fine! Fine! Fine! Yeah!
