Building Blocks

Today is Friday, May 7. It's high time this week came to an end. With a historic plunge on Wall Street, electoral outcomes unsure in the UK, and oil still pumping into the Gulf of Mexico, it seems we could all use a little break.  The economic crisis in Greece seemed to have passed, but is still rocking markets. Terrorism still haunts us all. Maternal health is a fiercely renewed debate in Canada's Parliament. And rumours abound that Chris Bosh is about to exit the Raptors.

It's times like these when I relish a lazy Saturday, playing with the little man. His life is so joyous. Sure he faces frustration daily, trying to overcome a series of perpetual hurdles (next up walking, talking and some pesky molars), but he does it with such abandon, such pure spirit that it always makes me smile. I stack some blocks, he'll knock them down and we'll both laugh ourselves giddy.

Thank you, wee one.

Playing with your kids knows no economic boundaries.

That is a beautiful picture, is that one or yours? Nothing helps cleanse the soul of the trials and tribulations of the world like some good on the floor time with the kids.
