NSV - Playful Momma

button


I think I may only have one Non-Scale Victory this week. It was the way I felt playing with my son today. We had quite the workout and I loved how happy it made him to have me run with him and show him that kind of energy and attention. The Kids Yoga video we did really gave me a goal - I want my kids to remember Momma playing with them. I want them to be joyful because I have the energy to play with them. Today was a start and we will keep it up!

  2. Way to go! Keep it up! I love that you will play. Some adults won't allow themselves that kind of fun. Enjoy it!

    1. Thanks! I used to work with kiddos with autism and I got used to playing and being silly for therapy, but it seems harder at home where there are so many things I try to get done. I want my kiddos to think of Mom as fun and look back with happy memories!

  4. Hi! I am stoping by from the linkup with Katie and Lex. It is so great that you got to be out with your kiddo! I don't have kids of my own, but I love to be active during recess so that my students can see another adult role model engaging in outdoor activities!

    I hope you have a great week and cannot wait to read about your NSV's next week!

    1. Thank you! That's great that you do that during recess, it's hard to give that kind of energy when you may already be heading toward mental exhaustion working with kids - I know how that goes! They're lucky to have you!

    1. Thanks! We can't wait for some sun and warmth around here! So far, we've bundled up for so e walks but it will be much easier when we can get out without all the layers!

  7. Sometimes the NSVs come in waves and sometimes they trickle out, but playing with your son is one of the best NSVs you could ask for. Congrats on such a successful journey so far and gaining so many supportive followers!
