Ok, folks. It’s long overdue that I turn a corner here. I’ve worked hard for years to become an adult, holding down the residence/job/pet thing, and now marriage. I’ve kept a budget. I clean my house. Many of you know I even went through several rough years not long ago. Yes, I think I’ve grown up a little since childhood.
And now it’s time to reverse that. It’s time I grew down, regressed and became a kid again.
I will delight in stories, relish in the small wonders , scrape my knee, laugh at Dr. Seuss, and climb a lot of trees.
I won’t sweat the small stuff. Really, I won’t.
I’ll make it a priority to notice little bugs and wild flowers.
It’s worth it, just to break a few rules. Vince and I will both make sure to do that a few times.
After all, he’s a big kid himself. Together we’re just a pair of kids in love.
Maybe I’ll re-learn how to curtsey (thanks, cousin David, for teaching me the first time when I was three) :o)
I hope I can even rejuvenate that child-like faith. I read once that the door to heaven is low, meaning one has to stoop low as a child, with humility, to enter.
In this new path, I can’t wait to explore everything with new eyes, to laugh at adults and their worries, and make playtime one of the primary parts of the day. I’m bursting with excitement. I can’t WAIT to be a kid again.
After all, I have the best excuse to digress to childhood.
I get to be a MOM!!!
Vince and I are excited to announce we’re going to be parents!! Coming in six months!
