Today I have been thinking about what I have and what I do not. I don't like this train of thought, because it never fails to go where I don't want it to go. However, I am trying to be proactive about it and just figure out how to solve things...and then hopefully my lopsided perception will even out a bit more.
We are struggling with a happy ever after in our family. We live in an apartment while my hubby's business is growing and are waiting to finally settle down somewhere. My son is unhappy. We need a backyard so he can run around and discover and do something other than video games/TV. I feel totally out of options because there is no where for my kids to PLAY. PLUS--the rainy Seattle season is coming and then we are truly out of options and stuck inside. I work, which means I can't spend the day coming up with grandious crafts and projects to entertain indoors--and it is unreasonable to think that I can take them to the park every single day. I seriously don't have the tools to give our kids the life I want to give them in the moment. That totally totally sucks.
I know our living situation will not be like this forever. But I yearn to know what I can do now--because a solution is needed for peace in my children's life to finally arrive.
So dear readers (are you there?), what can we do? How can I give my kids a life that they deserve when where we live is not ideal for their growth? How do people do it when you can't go outside and play?
