You and your little genius has been in the home now for at least a week. A wonderful way to break the monotony is to tap into your inner child.

Remember what it was like playing games like castle… make pretend… or even tag. Throw the rules away and put caution to the wind.  Here is a list of fun and simple games that will allow you to let loose. I guarantee, you and your little geniuses will have a ton of fun!

  • Red Rover:
    • Two teams line up opposite each other, no more than 30 feet apart. The first team agrees to call one player from the opposite team, and chants, “Red RoverRed Rover, send (player’s name) on over!” The person called runs to the other line and attempts to break the chain (formed by the linking of hands)
  • Castle:
    • Save your little genius from a firy dragon! Take a toy and make it the enemy. Run through the house and pretend that you are doing everything you can to save the prince or princesses life.
  • Tea Party:
    • This is a great game when you want a calm environment. Put on something “ Fancy” and take out your tea cups. Sit, Pretend, and Sip
  • Tick Tac Toe
    • Make the game big by using blankets as the rows and pillows as the X’s and O’s
  • Home Olympics
    • Have your little genius run around the couch, jump zig zag through the kitchen, do a cartwheel at the front door.

What every you do, have some fun! The children will burn some energy and you will relieve some stress!

Lesson from my Daughter

current event, encouragement, heart and mind, mom, Mom Life, SLiM Life

My daughter taught me to love myself. Birthing a beautiful chocolate princess with cotton coils and a dimpled smile opened my eyes to the beauty that is me. The way she studies how I hold my shoulders curve my lips and tame my hair brought awareness to how I carried myself.

 I had to think …

 “Am I teaching my daughter to like herself or love herself?”

“Am I putting up with my looks or appreciation my looks?”

Before my daughter I had not considered the importance of presenting myself to the world. Not as a performance, but in an intentional way that says, “I am important, I am loved, and I deserve respect.”

While I compliment my daughter and show her love, I realized that the most effective way to teach her self-worth and confidence is to SHOW self-worth and confidence.
