My 6 year-old is one crazy kid. When he gets excited, he gets LOUD! His teacher even wrote it on his third quarter report card. I think she called it "enthusiasm".
But we have our quiet moments, too. He likes nothing more than time with Mom or Dad without all the distractions of the other kids.
This morning he came to visit me before his sister and brother woke up. We watched Curious George together.
He got the giggles.
Giggles turned to chuckles.
Chuckles burst out into raucous laughter. All because of a cartoon monkey.
This boy reminds me that sometimes life is just simple. And it feels so good to let yourself go and feel the joy of it.
That's a pretty good lesson to have learned by 7:30 in the morning.
