Taking a leap

Yuri likes to climb up onto things and then jump. He makes some reckless plunges that make my hair stand. But I stop myself from trying to stop him because I remember doing the same thing when I was a kid. We loose that recklessness as we grow up because of all the accountability we are taking on. As we become more careful we also slow down and put too much analysis into things before taking a leap. It's the order of nature and the world would be chaotic otherwise. But I don't believe that we should forget that feeling of a fearless jump. That's why I let him have it, even if my heart drops to my knees. I want him to know and remember that awesome feeling of letting go of the fear.
