I have never even considered that my mother had a childish side to her. It has always been locked away behind adult preoccupations.
Now she is 92 years old and I am amazed at how she reacts to Luke and Lily, joyous, playful, loving.
Yesterday I watched her play with Luke and a balloon,
and when Luke did his two favorite magic tricks she was suitably amazed.
- The missing finger sliding on the hand trick, to which she declared: “That one gets me every time!”
- For the levitating cup trick, she had no words, just “wow!”
All I have is wow for the whole thing, children rule!
