My niece reminds me to be silly, to run around the house dancing, to think outside of the box. It's good to be around little people. They remind us and help us to unteach what society has ingrained in us. How do we stop the cycle? Be silly and wear baskets on our heads. Dance to your favorite music. Laugh.
When I was little I used to sit for hour and make mud pies. I don't remember the last time I played in the dirt. It's time.Thank you to all the little people in my life. And thank you to the adults who make it possible for those little people to be who they are.
