So, how neat is this? Jeannette from Jeannette's Jottings has an entry in her journal with 25 baby pictures of fellow journalers!! How cool is that?! It was a labor of love and is a real treat! Go on over to her place and go see it!! Seeing these pictures brought back a lot of memories of when I was little, hence the quote above. I decided to post the picture I submitted to her in my journal today. I also wanted to show you a picture of my sissy, Krissy, that she submitted.
That is me on the left. I was probably between two and three-years old. Krissy is probably five or so. She was always a very tiny child. I think my head looks too big and I look like a bobble-head doll or a PEZ dispenser. LOL. For fun and for comparison, I am going to post pictures of Chelsea and Matt. I believe that Chelsea is about 18 months in the first picture and about 3 1/2 the second. Matt is around 18 months in the second.
That was lots of fun!! Children and child-likeness and playfulness and joy always makes me smile!! I don't think we stop enough to play....to give that part of us that needs to explore and create and beam and "just be" without any thought of judgment . We should not worry so much about what the other person thinks if we are singing in the grocery store or if we are dancing when we don't have much rhythm (Right, Chels?). I do think that if we stop worrying so much about our "To Do" lists and fill ourselves up with play, then our lists will get done faster and with more enjoyment.
Hoping everyone has a good and playful rest of the week!! Ciao!
