It may seem a bit late, but in celebration of Easter, I’d like to help you remember how to be a kid. Read on, because this is valuable stuff… all the time.
One of my mantras in life is
I MUST REMEMBER HOW TO BE A KID – EVERYDAY
…let alone the holidays…
My kids are grown up now. The youngest is almost 18, which means he doesn’t “do” the Easter Basket thing. Any celebration of Easter in his world (at least in the child-like, Easter Bunny kinda way) comes from me, from a distance (he lives with his dad out of state).
Damn straight, I send him goodies for Easter. I give goodies to all my loves… my youngest son, my oldest son, and my man, M.C.
As sweet as it may sound to “bless” all my loves with goodies on the holidays, my gifts come at a price. Anyone close enough to me to receive something must be able to relive their childhood (over and over) and participate in every kind of childish game I happen to think of and spring on them.
Which leads me to the moral of the story:
Life is too short to take everything seriously. It’s spring…the season of renewal, forgiveness, redemption and joy. Enjoy life. Meditate, read, sing, speak, dance, eat…but ENJOY your life. Do what makes you happy.
Try to remember the joy and sheer delight you experienced as a child when gifts awaited you, or you were surprised by fabulous treats. Be that. Be surprised and joyful about life. Look for the moments and seize them. Who cares what people think? Right?
So, this morning, I laid out a trail of chocolate for M.C. Nugget. Before he could have his first cup of coffee, he was required to find all of the treats. The chocolates from the bedroom door to his desk led to his first card and a chocolate Easter Bunny. Next on the trail, Easter egg Jordan Almonds… and then to the Piece de Resistance, the final card along with his protégé, Ernie Hamster (we’re working on a suitable rap handle), who was ready to perform his new single “Here a Chick There a Chick”
It may prove impossible for you to decipher his earth-shattering lyrics in the video below, so I’ve provided them here:
Here a chick here… Imma Imma a chick there…
Here a chick, there a chick, everywhere a chick chick.
If you’re talkin’ bout chicks yo, I GOT GAME!
Hidden my eggs, yo I find MANY!
Find my Easter basket, walk out the DOOR
Chillin’s all around me now, that’s for SHOR!
Easter Bunny, yeah HE GOT GAME
But I’m an Easter Chick… Headin’ for FAME!
Imma chick here… Imma Imma chick there…
Here a chick there a chick, everywhere a chick CHICK.
