Fun Comes First (Happiness, Playfulness, Success)

We were having an after-school snack at Panera’s, a bowl of broccoli cheddar soup to be exact, when she stopped me and looked me in the eye with a more serious tone

Her – “Daddy.”

Me – “Yeah?”

Her “I really like tennis.”

I felt she was expecting to see me get all excited because she knows I love tennis and that it would make me happy that my daughter wants to play. I kept it cool.

Me – “If you want to play, that’s great. I think you could be very good at tennis, and it would also be fun for you.”

Realizing I was talking to a child who filters through fun…

Me – “I mean, it would be fun for you, and you could be really good.”

She confirmed my correction…

Her – “Fun goes always first.”
