savouring the innocence and enthusiasm of 4.5 year olds

mummy has been having some amazing conversations with me of late.
she reckons it's a marvellous time being with a 4.5 year old
when she asks me questions and i answer in all my childlike charm
(based on my vast and worldly experiences)

it's all good, life is mostly fun despite some of its silly adult-rules
but it's really a great time to carpe diem

of late at kindy, we've been practicing a surprise
for the upcoming Fathers' Day celebrations next week.

(so please daddy, don't peek!)
mummy just smiles with glee, laughts with delight and shakes with hysteria
when i do my little song and dance number
with unselfconscious wholehearted abandon ad infinitum

she keeps mumbling something about
cherishing all my innocence and enthusiasm now
because there will come a time one day
when i will consider this sort of palaver pretty uncool...
