Under the Influence – Bunny See, Bunny Do

Listen to the podcast

Someone once kindly noted that our kids do a great job entertaining other little people. We all know I don’t play with our children, so as soon as I heard the compliment, I immediately knew who to credit for it: Patrick and Bryan.

We had the good fortune of moving next to two extraordinary young boys. They both adored and entertained every tiny neighbor, one after the other, as they arrived on Boston Street. Throughout those years they set countless positive examples, but most importantly, they taught our children that you’re never too old (or cool) for childish play.

They’re not kidding when they say it takes a village to raise children, and we’ve missed our villagers terribly over the past year. We rely on you to teach us how to slow down, to accept ourselves and others as we are, and to not expect more than people can give. But you also remind us to take everything less seriously and to have fun. Remember fun?

The thing I’m most looking forward to reviving, during this season of resurrection, is joy and laughter. We need our co-parents’ loving energy more than ever right now. Let’s hope that laughter-filled together time comes soon cause we’re gettin’ ready to blow over here.

Ready to join me?

I would love for you to join me as I work to undo these old patterns and evolve to create a more serene and accepting existence. (And you should know that I still want to ear flick the little knuckleheads {this includes my husband} when they don’t rinse a dish before putting it in the dishwasher — always a work in progress.)
