Start by Playing - January 1, 2020

It's been a mark of honor in my life to be busy. It meant I was Doing Important Things.

This year, I decided to start off differently and just play all day. 

This is what I accomplished.  My son told me a few months ago that he worked on puzzles in the school library. I thought it would be fun to get him a couple for Christmas. 

He didn't do anything with them for a few days, so I asked if he minded me doing some. He said no problem.  I did a small 100 piece one the other day. It was fun, but my son never looked at it or what I was doing. 

Today I asked if he minded me doing another one. Again, no problem mom! I worked on this one for hours. This evening, after my husband went to bed,  I was down to the last 30 pieces or so. Kiff came over and tried to fit a couple pieces in. I got up from the table and asked if he wanted to finish for me. And he did. 

It was a little hard to let him finish something I had put so much time into, but I hoped he would get something from it - something more than I would have.
