F is for Fine!

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 kids were OK being kids and I'm OK  I know you're thinking, wow, this woman has'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!


  1. I wonder b/c I'm the same way as you but I remember playing outside every single matter what the weather. and we ran all over the neighborhood. I won't let mine out in the fenced in yard HA!

  2. My sisters and I always found something to do "outside", as well as inside. I was never bored as a child that I can remember. It seems like my mind was always looking ahead with creating something, anything...wish I could remember! Ha Ha Great post!! Cute little ones too! I also joined your blog!

    1. I don't think I ever grew out of creating something...a little slower now at accomplishing anything at 5 months prego, but i'll speed up again!

  3. Aw, such cute photos up on top. My son can spend all day outside, but the times you just let your kid go out there and play with other kids are over -- too bad. But we still go out and have fun, just has to be a family event now.
    Nice to meet you on the Challenge list.
