Ah, to be a Kid Again

Blair at Wild and Precious had a couple posts last week containing some pictures of herself as a little girl, along with the reminder that we should do "childish" things every now and then.  Her examples:  watch cartoons, jump on a trampoline, etc.  Put off doing the adult things like cleaning the house to just play.

It's a good reminder, although I don't need it much.  Having a 1-year-old (tomorrow!) and a 3-year-old, I am constantly reminded of the joy of being a kid.  I get to hit balls in the yard, play on playgrounds, run through the sprinkler, eat popsicles, dance and sing, build towers....the list is endless truly.  I get to have a lot of fun now, but I do still have those adult things that must be done.

I thought it was a fun idea to post a couple of my favorite pictures of me as a little girl.  The picture above is pretty contemplative, but I love it.  I wish I knew what I was thinking about.  Look at the joy on my face below - life was all about having fun and not much else!
