While I was preparing dinner last night, my daughter and I had one of our deep conversations about toys and life and things that just matter for her at the moment.
Suddenly, out of the blue, she looked at me and said: “Mom, it is actually pretty hard work to be Barbie, you know.”
I looked at her and asked her what she meant.
And then she explained it to me.
Jack Frost, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Mr Sandman and the Tooth Fairy. They all have something in common. And it is not just the movie “Rise Of The Guardians”! Kids believe in them!
Do you remember, when you were lying on your back, looking up to the sky and imagining pictures in the clouds; dreaming of magical creatures, seeing all sort of different things in the shapes the clouds formed?
We grow up believing in the magical world of fairies, magical creatures like unicorns, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and so on. They bring some unexplainable thrill into our life and sometimes they are used by adults to make kids behave. But they all make us wonder and dream and hope and look forward to something.
