    I am the stay at home mother of two children ages 5 and 3 and this is such a welcome and gentle reminder of what is truly important. Some days my "agenda" (albiet, tame in comparison with most modern day parents, i like to bake or do a family craft project a few times a week, a walking trip to the library, that sort of thing) is thwarted by my children's desire to build Lego obstacle courses, spin in circles while listening to the Beatles or cover the dining room table with their homemade construction paper "books". We all need to leave childhood to the experts, those little ones exploring and experiencing the world at their own pace. Perhaps we adults truly do need to be the students and allow our children to remind us of all we have forgotten. Excuse me, I need to go get my crayons.
