- It’s okay to really really want something.
- Take delight in the good things in life – a slide, a swing, bouncing on a mattress, ice-cream or fruit.
- The expensive things are not necessarily the best. You can have fun with anything, anywhere, if the right people are around. (For the record, toys when you are 22 months old are not important. The most fun things are: a tiny teapot I bought in Morocco, a wooden spoon, a silver bowl from Cambodia, chopsticks and balls (the more the better), a rubber spatula, a watering can, and a bill that came in the mail).
- Use your imagination.
- It takes about four days to warm up to a stranger, and it’s okay to keep your guard up until you feel comfortable.
- Shoes and socks are a nuisance.
- Sharing is no fun at all … unless you’re sharing hugs.
