Emily says: "When I try to get down and play I feel silly and awkward and just tend not to fully enjoy myself or the moment. I catch myself thinking of all the things I "should be doing" and am left feeling even more guilty than I do when I just don't play with toys at all. I'm awesome at setting up things for my kids to enjoy but am less awesome at being IN the moment with them!"
