We had a mini-party tonight and my son decided to entertain us. He stuck his foot in a little plastic bucket and walked around the pool table.
Now on a normal day, this would just have been mildly entertaining, but because everyone was in a jovial mood anyway, the simple pleasure of watching a child be childlike was magnified. Everyone giggled and watched as he mugged for the camera and walked a couple of laps around the table.
The only sad part of this is the fact that if it hadn’t been a special occasion there is a good chance I would have been annoyed by his childishness instead of delighting in his childlike enjoyment of random objects.
So this is my point, don’t wait for a special occasion to delight in your child.
