Play is the glue for parents to see their children where they are and for who they are.

Remember-- progress not perfection. Aim for 5 minutes of play to work on getting a closer relationship.  The time is going to pass anyway. 

Self-Care: Find the sun early in the day.  Seek it out and feel the superpower.  It will help your sleep later in the day too. 

Play Activity: The purple plate at dinner, rotate who has it, and share what you appreciate about them.

Bonus-- Watch America's Funniest Video and talk about the bloopers you have in your life.
