Menopause shouts empowerment.
It’s all about taking control.
Learning to be your own boss.
That is, until a new force comes into you life.
You can’t fight it.
Best not to try.
When I’m at Mazen’s house, guess who’s the boss?
The boss of playing, that is.
Whether to feed cheddar bunnies to Elmo or roll trucks along the sofa edge…
When to ride the tricycle and when to engage in a fast game of chase….
If it’s time to sing or no singing is allowed?
Who’s the boss of playing?
Because that little boy is the best boss I’ve ever had.
The Book: No battle of wills on this one. Maze and I both love to read (over and over) Jane Yolen and Mark Teague’s How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight. ROAR!!
