I’m talking about the kind of overcome that stops time, squashes your adult ego, has you forgetting that you even own a phone that proclaims to be so smart and has your inner 8-year-old jumping for utter joy.
It’s been a while, hasn’t it?
Most of us grown-ups don’t often enough turn off the notifications and “to-do’s” for a beat and make time for full-on frivolity.
In my latest column for Chicago Parent, I shared four tips from my book, Well Played, that will help you put that serious adult stuff aside and reap the rewards of a life well played.
You can check out the full column and tips over at ChicagoParent.com.
And after that, you can grab your own copy of Well Played right here.
( PS. A BIG HUGE THANK YOU to my friends at Chicago Parent for this super fun moment of play caught in time. Thanks for featuring Tru and I on the cover this month, and showing that both tweens and parents aren't too cool or too old to play! )
