This afternoon, we were looking at inspirational plaques. One had the words Peace, Dreams, and Imagination.
Me – “What are your dreams?”
Her – “To be fun. To have new journeys and adventures.”
I’m sure some specific ones will form in the coming years, but it was interesting to hear that at this age the dream is to feel good and enjoy a great ride. How clear these children are that it is the point of it all.
As she grows up, I will do my best to not let my parenting or to let schooling pull her into emphasizing otherwise as primary life intentions.
