I was watching a nearly three-year-old playing hide and seek. She had so much joy in running to hide and then before I had finished counting would run back to me laughing all the time.
I explained the point was to hide but she had too much fun finding and seeking me by counting to 3 even though she can count higher and finding me before I had a chance to hide.
The way she just had fun being in the moment and not worrying about the game and the rules made me think how I get stuck in doing things the right way instead of being flexible and having fun.
I know children do not have to worry about as many things, but I still wanted her to follow the rules then I realised what does it matter she is having fun, we were having lots of laughter what did it matter.
I wanted to experience the joy of a nearly three old and get close to being in the moment.
Have you discovered something child like like this and being as free and uninhibited as a three-year-old?
Have you have been stomping in puddle or blowing bubbles, you do not have to be with a child, just doing something fun and in the moment.
Do you find it hard to be child like and stop focussing on rules.?
