Connecting dots with The Idea Dude
This week’s dots are about children. Ergo, it is about intelligence, curiosity, wonderment, humour, determination and everything they do so naturally. They are the best dots.
Dream like an 8 year old
Matt over at The Digital Perm started me on this theme. He says, That is why kids just rock. Everything is possible.
Be curious like a child
Pam reminds us that we need to regain our child-like perspective As adults we get so lost in day to day adult issues. We forget to pause for the wonderful moments in life. She says, When my son was just toddler I remember him picking up leaves and investigating them as if they were the coolest things ever.
Ever spend an afternoon with a 5 year old. The most common word you’re likely to hear is “why?”. They are like sponges, for them there is no limit, there is no sky. They want to know. Why? Just because.
Impossible is not a word
Christina tells us in the most beautiful way of her child learning to jump. You’ve got to appreciate her determination. She doesn’t understand why she can’t get off the floor, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.
Laugh longer, laugh often
Michele reminds us that children laugh more than we do. Did you know children laugh about 400 times a day, while adults laugh on average only 15 times a day?
This week it snowed in the city. I thought of sludge, ice and traffic jams. For my 13 year-old, the first thing that came to her mind that resulted a smile so wide, it warmed my heart the whole day long?
May the dots be with you!

Only 15 times a day, huh? Compared to 400? Hadn’t we better get busy, then? Let’s see: 15 down, only 385 to go…
Great reminder to look at life through fresh eyes!
Vernon Lun says
Sometimes we’re too adult, aren’t we?
Jeanne Dininni says
You’re so right! I guess it would be far better if we laughed so much we lost track! LOL! (Oops…16 down, only 384 to go…)

Thanks for the link to the Perm. I love the other dots. Perfect way to start my Tuesday.
