The Rules of Childhood Part 2
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:
Every stick is a pirate’s sword.
Every ball has to be thrown
Anything with wheels has to be ridden (or pushed).
Anything that fits into a hand must be tasted.
Every empty hallway requires a scream.
Every drawer must be opened.
Chewed gum must be stored in your hair
Laughter is the language of joy*
*Kids ask: since laughter, giggles and big smiles are the language when did adults lose their ability to speak?
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 (http://instagram.com/spillmanrichard) and my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/richard.spillman.3)
Once a week (or so) I will put everything that I have posted as well as some additions in my blog at spillmanrichard.com
If you miss that there will be links from tumblr (awakenedbook.tumblr.com) and pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/awakenedtrilogy)
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 AwakenedTrilogy@gmail.com 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.
