It's the Simple Things

Don't you wish sometimes that you could harness the unabashed joy and wonderment your kids can find in the everyday moments?

The sprinkler for instance. I have to admit that for me it has become just another thing you have to do around the house but for kids it is a water fountain, a splash pad, a car wash, a rainbow maker. I have vivid memories of trying to perfect my timing both on my bike and on foot so I could pass by a neighbour's house at the precise moment so that I didn't get wet. On other days the perfect timing meant getting hit at full blast to cool you off on a hot summer's night.

I love seeing my kids faces when the sprinkler comes out. I need to recapture some of that innate joy. Who knows, if you pass by our house one night this summer you may just see a really big kid running through the sprinkler.
