Growing Up

I used to sit on the sprinkler and giggle. I splashed around in little pink bathing suits in tropical printed blow up pools. I made mud pies. I made messes. I learned to find calm in the water and the earth.
So now I wander outside to find her with the faucet on, ankle deep in mud, rocks and mischief and I just sit down and watch.
It never hurt anyone to learn freedom by tasting it.

Ironic isn't it?

That Freedom often doesn't taste as yummy as it looks? Chocolate? Yummy.... Mudpie? =-p
