Do you remember when you were a kid and your only worry was what time your best friend could come out to play? Or how late you got to stay up? Or if your Mom was going to make you sit at the table until you ate all your peas?
At what age did we changed from carefree to careful? When did the boundaries of our safe neighborhoods shrink? The children of today have to make the transition from carefree to careful much earlier than the children of my era (the 1950’s). I love this picture because it reminds me of what fun it is to be carefree and full of laughter.
Think back to your childhood. What is one memory of you and a childhood friend that comes to mind where laughter was this spontaneous and contagious?
