Zen Mommy Minute: Share Yourself

This week’s Zen Mommy Minute is to share something you are passionate about with your kids. What did you used to LOVE to do before kids? Have you done this with the kids lately? Whatever it is, your child will love doing this activity with you because it’s something that YOU love… and you are sharing a core part of yourself with them.

Give it a whirl and let me know the fun and creative things you do together and how it felt. My friend Diane had a great idea to write Haiku poems  with her tween and teen sons. How cool is that? She used to write Haiku’s in the car on the way home from work ALL the time before becoming a mom. I know, some safety issues there maybe but hey!

  1. I can’t wait to check out those jeans!!! Can I have jeans with a stretchy band too?

  2. A Seasonal Flu Haiku

    Feverish forehead,
    Holding hands; consolation.
    Until you are gone.

    Couldn’t resist. Note the 5/7/5 syllable pattern. The focus on a season (okay, it’s a stretch) and the twist at the end. Who or what is gone? The flu? The person who is sick? The person doing the consoling? Now you’ve got me going again. But I’m not haiku-ing and driving any more!

  3. yay diane, you were my muse with this weeks post.

    love this. see it as FLU being gome… other options too sad. and i’m glad to hear they’ll be no more writing and driving for you my dear. thank you for the flu inspired poem 😉
