Something I have noticed about this age versus like... older kids and adults. Little kids laugh and smile ALOT.
Silly things are just the MOST HILARIOUS
Did you do something that adults would consider mundane if they did it? The kid will cheer and hoot and high five. (Ex: Holding onto the ladder with ONE hand! IMPRESSIVE!!!)
They are so proud of their accomplishments!
it's so refreshing to be around.
I didn't want to work with kids, but I am glad that I do.
My life is a bit more simple.
I love it.
Where did we lose our joy for life?
Where did we lose our sense of simple accomplishment?
Where did we lose the wonder for the little things?
Why do we think that to grow up we have to lose the things that help make the world shiny?
Yeah life is hard.
But have you ever watched a toddler?
They hit a bump in their road.
They get really mad.
Suddenly. Out of the blue they get distracted by something good.
And they move on from the problem?
Why do adults feel like we have to hold onto that bump even after it's resolved?
These tiny little humans may not have it all figured out.
But they are happy.
They are fun to be around.
Everything is an adventure if you look at it from the right angle!
Scared of climbing high?!
That's no longer a tall ladder attached to the wall.
It is now a mountain where you must defeat the spider queen and save all of humanity!
I think I was starting to forget how magical life is.
These precocious little raggamuffins are teaching me to find the utter excitement in life.
I think we all need to spend sometime with the little humans.
Just so that we can remember how magical life was.
I know some people grew up in rough situations.
Some of the kids I teach don't have ideal home lives either.
But they still smile daily.
Smiling is important.
