Inside Out + Me

Yesterday my family and I watched Inside Out. In short, I loved it. I cried at least four times during the movie and at least once during the short Lava which came on right before.

Inside Out really hit me in my core, especially since I have children.¬†Even though I know that I can’t stop them from growing up, oh, how I wish I could.

For a few more years I just want them to reach for my hand as we start to walk down the street. I want them to get excited when they show me their latest refrigerator-worthy crayon drawings. I want them to make up stories about being Jedi and Princesses. I want them to hug me so tight that I can barely breathe.

All I need is just a few more years.

Or twenty.
