To Be Like a Child

The next time you are with someone under the age of about 5, try doing all of the things that they do, exactly like they do them. It's pretty hilarious when you think about it. Just watch the way they jump, skip, throw their hands in the air, and dance around completely at random, expressing the utter joy they feel to be little and carefree. I love to see them at it, but grown-ups look absolutely ridiculous doing those things. I was out running errands with my sister and my two pre-schoolers the other day, and I was trying to mimic everything that they did. Ashley just about peed her pants laughing. You really should try it! Where do they get the energy?

I was reading an article a few years ago about an olympic athlete who actually did this and wore himself out. He was trying to do everything a 1 year old did. It was pretty funny. I wish I could remember where I read that, or which athlete it was.
