Don’t Pass up A Chance to Play Barbies

Image

Calliope,

Wake up! Get up off of your lazy ass and live your life! Your kids will not be kids forever. You passed up a chance to play Barbie’s with your little girl, and for what? To stare at your phone, aimlessly searching for nothing? She won’t want you to play with her forever. One day, she will hardly speak to you at all.

You’re letting your life pass you by. You’re sleeping your life away. I look back, and all I see is a bunch of missed opportunities, fleeting chances, and regrets. Get up now and do something about it before its too late! Open your eyes, see the beauty that surrounds you, stretch out your arms, and enjoy the life you have today! Stop waiting for good things to come to you and start making great things happen now! You can’t get it back. And it’ll be over before you know it.

Get down on that floor and play with your little girl. Pick up a Barbie and start to play. Play like you did when you were little. Pretend like you’re really that doll. Be silly. Make your daughter laugh hard. Let yourself laugh. It may seem simple today, but one day, it’ll mean something to both of you. And she’ll remember that her mommy always took the time to play with her. And she will love you for it.

Futuristically yours,

Calliope then

    1. I didn’t write this post. I just saw it. I never accepted awards because it doesn’t fit my theme and because the awards get passed around so much they don’t have meaning. But this is real special coming from you. I will acknowledge this though. I just wanna hug you.

  1. I was overwhelmed at how fast you posted your first letter. And now I’m in even more awe after reading this. Although, I’m not a parent, I can relate to this. You’re definitely right about one day it’ll mean something because how many times have we looked back and said, “I wish my parents did this with me.” That’s why when I do have kids I will be an even bigger kid than them, making goofy faces, playing with toys (barbies, race cars) and just being carefree.

    On another note. I can relate to when you said, “To stare at your phone, aimlessly searching for nothing?” I’ve been drifting a lot recently, doing things that won’t matter in the long-run. So, how can I feel life is passing me by when I’m responsible for it. SMDH!

    1. Why, thank you ever so much for your kind words regarding my letter. I was worried about posting it without first letting you read it, because I wasn’t sure if it fit into what you were looking for. But, now that I see that I’m on the right track I can keep them coming. Thanks again for your support. I look forward to a fun and educating partnership on this. Thank you for giving me a platform on which to share my voice.

      1. You’re DEFINITELY on the right track. I’m doing my best to make this all our blog. So, if you have any ideas/suggestions I will appreciate. Thinking of a blog logo/icon now and possibly changing the look of the blog to be less confusing to new readers. I’ll be re-posting your letter throughout the day 🙂 I really want other moms to read this!

        1. You may be in luck, because I’m an art teacher as well, and I’m pretty good at doing cool things with letters..I’ll see what I can come up with. I’m not sure how I can turn a hand drawn sketch into a computer graphic, but lemme work on it.
