Our kids are growing up so quickly that sometimes it makes me sad. At other moments, I feel grateful that they've stayed "young," engaging in creative play long after many of their peers have been lost to video games. I love this image of 10 year-old Brooklyn, happily dressed up as a princess as her scientific mind works on concocting a sound system with snap circuits.
The tune she wanted? Here comes the bride. As you can see, our basement recently hosted a royal wedding.
Just for the record, the prince did indeed kiss the bride. I've got it on video to use as blackmail in future years.
While I may name my gray hairs after our munchkins, their laughter keeps me young.
