Sometimes along the path from childhood to adulthood we lose track of the mysteries and the joys of life that our children see so clearly.

As a result, we often don’t understand our children. So for the next few months I plan, as best I can, to take you through a refresher course in the world as children see it. Perhaps it will give you a few laughs as you recognize your children and maybe even yourself from long ago.

To start things off here are a few that I’ve already posted on other sites:

Everyone wants to see you dance even when there is no music

When any part of your body is covered by a blanket you are invisible

Every mud puddle has to be walked in.

Every window needs a nose print.

Every button must be pushed (more than once).

Every secret has to be shouted out.

Every map leads to a treasure.

Every pool must be run around (twice).

If it floats it must be thrown into the pool.

If it doesn’t float it must be thrown into the pool.

Hugs are the only appropriate response to tears.

This is the way it will work.

  • During the week I will, from time to time, post a rule or two on my twitter account (@awakenedtrilogy), my instagram account ( and my facebook page (

  • Once a week (or so) I will put everything that I have posted as well as some additions in my blog at

  • If you miss that there will be links from tumblr ( and pinterest (

  • So one way or another you should be able to follow along

  • If you want to make sure you don’t miss anything, send your email address to or use the contact page on my blog site.

  • If you have any rules you want to suggest, email them to me and I will post the best along with a link to your social media page.

  • Of course, your comments are always welcomed.
