“Everything I ever needed to know…”

August 14th, 2007

Do you remember that poster that was really popular several years ago, titled, “Everything I Ever Needed to Know, I Learned in  Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum?   It’s sweet sentiment makes you want to be a little kid again, and makes us misty-eyed at the wonderful world it would be if people kept core values at hand through adulthood.   I started thinking of that today while Kenny and I were at his Rolly Pollie class (his favorite hour of the week!)… and I thought, what a world it would be if all we all still acted like two-year-olds.   I pictured an Armani-clad  lawyer in a courtroom,  when told that the case was being thrown out, suddenly dropping to the floor, face crumpled, and wailing as if his heart would break.   Or the cashier at the grocery store handing out change, then suddenly realizing that she still wanted a turn with it and taking it back, running to the other side of the room.   Or a roof repairman getting to the top of the house, then with wobbly knees, yelling, “Mama, get you down now!!”  

Just  a thought.

    So funny… as a mom of an actual 2 year too, I can only imagine the world if we all acted as if we were 2!! Maybe (sometimes) it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world! Everything is so new and interesting and fun… but then again, there can be those tantrums… Ahh… the wonderful tantrums!!
    Hope you are doing well!!
