During the first four years of motherhood, I was a real boy's mum; I had two little redheaded boys running around me. Jumping and playing around was what kept me busy most of the day. Then a little girl joined our family and, funnily enough, the energy levels at home just continued to rise. Always using their muscles to explore just how strong they really are.
Can we still play fight when they're bigger and stronger?
The craziness already started when they were babies. We rolled over the floor, lifted them up in the air and pretended they were always winning the match (didn't matter what kind of match it was). It was all nice and easy, at least for me. But now that they're bigger, I'm sometimes a bit insecure during our play fights. The eldest is seven and he's already quite strong. Am I strong enough for him? And if I use my full power, will I hurt him?
I looked into how to play with kids of different ages because I wanted to make sure that we could still fool around and have fun.
