Oh To Be a Kid Again… ~Plus~ Mega Bloks® First Builders™ Safari Train #Giveaway (2/27)

Mega Bloks Safari Train

As my due date approaches I am feeling more anxious and overwhelmed with my lengthy to-do list. Taxes, medical and dental appointments, certification audits and a list of other household business that lies on my shoulders while my husband is away is definitely feeling like a heavy load. It is the worst when the kids are asleep and my mind is racing with all the things I need to get done so some playtime with the kids during the day is often what I need as a brief escape from all the glories of adulthood.

We have recently added the newest Mega Bloks® First Builders™ Safari Train to our Mega Bloks collection and my kids have been having a ball. They both love animals and it is exciting for them to use them with our bin of Mega Bloks to make their own locomotive creations. My son is obsessed with trains and vehicles so my kids have been having a hard time sharing, because they both want to build their animals and blocks on the train wheels. Consequently, the train is rarely more than one piece long while they are playing.

Although life’s twists and turns have me wanting to hop a ride on a Safari Train of my own, I am grateful that I have my children to remind me of the simple joys in life. Their laughter, creativity and innocence are reminders of why I am soaring and stumbling through this journey called motherhood and for those brief moments when I am part of their world of play, life feels a lot more okay.

Now to remember to take deep breaths, put one foot in front of the other as I tackle one day at a time, and to stop and play.
