The Playroom: Back to school
Published: September 14, 2012
Late this the summer, while on a family trip to the mountains, I walked into the room where my children were sleeping and sat down. I watched them as they lay there, limbs askew, sticking out from under the lodge-themed blankets. I listened to them breathe, their bodies lean, healthy and strong, tanned from the summer sun. I thought about how happy they were, how happy I was to just sit there in the middle of the floor staring at them.
