Bluey, while an amazing show, certainly sets a high bar for parenting. One thing it does get right is the importance of play with your kids. As as parent you are inherently given permission to be rediculous and play. If you’ve forgotten how to pretend and be creative, it’s possible to rediscover this ability.

As your kids get older you can introduce them to your hobbies, and if you’re lucky, they’ll adopt a few. Then it’s easy. You get to share things with your kids and it’s pretty great. I certainly took a point of pride the first time my kids beat me at some of my favorite board games and video games. Getting to go on a real bike ride with your kids? One of the simple joys in life.
