Post 345: Childsihness

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.

  1. The missing finger sliding on the hand trick, to which she declared: “That one gets me every time!”
  2. For the levitating cup trick, she had no words, just “wow!”

All I have is wow for the whole thing, children rule!
