06.03.13 roll with it

There is all kinds of wisdom to be gathered by watching children.

  • Make your own fun.
  • Play is a priority.
  • It’s OK to get a little dizzy as long as you have a good ride.
  • Who cares about getting dirty??

And, of course,

  • just roll with it.

I have so much to learn.

04.04.13 welcome to the jungle

This is the kind of place I would never want to go. Yet, as a parent, if your kids love it then you love it. Or at least you love them enough to take them there once in a while. It’s hyper-stimulating, slightly claustrophic, loud, and rides that fine line between awesome & insane: everyone is exhilarated as long as they don’t get lost, hurt, scared, or completely overwrought.

Meanwhile, I sit and listen for distress calls, wave enthusiastically when I see my children’s happy, sweaty faces, and wish the trees weren’t made of plastic.
