At lunch today I was talking with Nerdstar about how one disadvantage I see to being an older parent is our cynicism. We know that not everything lasts forever, that people usually disappoint you, that most things are motivated by money, etc. But it is so very important for kids to believe. To believe in fairy tales and ever after and good triumphing over evil.
So my hope and prayer is that our hearts will be changed by his. In so many ways mine already has been.
