Should I be me or should I overdo it?
After over 60 years on the planet, nothing really excites or even annoys me any more. But I remember particularly my mother-in-law, who at 81 could still get excited about little things like a dandelion clock, a leaf in the breeze, or chasing a dice or a table tennis ball across the floor. She generated the same enthusiasm and sense of wonder in my children when they were toddlers and I think this is a Good Thing - children should be amazed and enthralled by everything.
So how do I go about encouraging enthusiasm, inquisitiveness and a sense of fun in my DGC's if I don't really feel it myself? If I pretend, they'll surely see through it immediately.
