I hear you. I have thought about this myself many times. We could all use a little bit more of that childish exuberance for life.


I wish very hard all the time that my 2 and a half year old daughter doesn't lose that joy. If only we could keep them protected from 'real life' for just a little longer....Great post. Very well written.

I so agree with this - I have a 15 yo and a 12.5 yo and I see the joy being further and further apart. When they are on the soccer field, they are working with a dash of joy, when they are at school - they are working...with episodes of joy. I need them to have joy again. I think by modeling they will find it - So I am off to find my own joy and bring it home to them.
