happy laughing children

Random shot from the party after the baptism today. There is a platform/stage in the hall where the party was, which all the children were drawn to as if they were magnetized. Then they ran around in circles, laughing. Not just my children, but every child under about eight. It was delightful. I saw four parents wince or flinch at the potential for injury inherent in about twenty hyper children and an eighteen-inch drop, and then visibly stop themselves from chiding the children. I said, "This may end in broken teeth and a lot of blood, but hey, baby teeth, amirite?" One father said "I'm just going to look away…" It was so great to see parents NOT helicoptering. They were all Millennials, too. #freerangeparenting #letthemplay #nobodygothurt
