Let's play!

Last week I asked my partner to get our son dressed for daycare.  After 10 minutes they still weren't back. I decided to wait another 5 minutes. Then I started to get annoyed. What was taking so long?
I opened up the bedroom door and there they were.  My partner, covered in a sheet, crawling over the floor, pretending to be a tiger. And our son hiding in the wardrobe, giggling out loud. 
Needless to say, my son was still in his pajamas. 
When we were young, we used to do it all the time: Playing games with others.  And I remember vividly how it made me feel.  School was just an annoying interference with my play time.
Now, as adults, unfortunately we don’t play that much anymore. Yes, we play with our kids, but when it comes to work we don't play tag during our lunch breaks. 
And you know what?  That’s a shame because play gives energy, boosts creativity and is lots of fun. 
Fortunately, more and more people rediscover the power of play and they even have their own profession…
