The holidays are a perfect time to take advantage of the kids being around and playful, but it's also very convenient to keep hacking away at the endless "To Do" list. It's not always a get things done OR play decision. I've been surprised how much faster my chores go when I really make an effort to go fast. And it's more fun! When I work hard to make child-led play a priority, there are big payoffs in our relationship, and it's also really fun!
Are you good at remembering to play with your children? What do you like to do together? How do you find time, and how do you remember?
