Early today I was thinking about the thank you notes I got from my co-workers in Thanksgiving. Most of them thanked me for my childishness, my childish behavior, my childish way of facing life, my childish way of making easier their days at he teacher’s lounge.
“Never lose your fresh smile and your childish sense of humor” it was written in one of them.
Well, I must confess I was surprised that being childish is not always a bad thing when you grow up, but I was even more surprised my friends see me that way.
I’ve been struggling all my life with my ups and downs and I assume I still deal with my Downs as a child does, running to cuddle up under protecting wings, and with my Ups, fooling around, dancing, singing no matter where or with whom I am, exactly as a child would do.
Yesterday, I went to do some errands with Sebastian, my older son who is experiencing all the “teenager’s symptoms”. It was quite cold for a summer night so the streets were completely empty. Even though I’ve been feeling down these days, I had the urging need to sing and dance in the middle of the street…you know, carnival atmosphere!!! My son wasn’t so happy though…..MOM stop it!! MOM Please!! MOM stay still!! And since I’m a VERY mature mom I went on by saying “BIENVENIDOS!!! BUENAS NOCHES!!!” Look at the video and see why… (I still don’t know why he got SO angry with me LOL)
When we got home I promised him I would never do that again. Some minutes later he decided to visit a friend who lives two blocks away and as soon as he was near the fence I ran to the door and shouted “Seba!!! BUENAS NOCHES!!” he started running away… but he was laughing….after all he loves his childish mom 🙂
I’ll be visiting my blogger friends at night, kisses and hugs for all.
