Little William, Bubble Boy

I've probably said this before, but I'll say it again. It's so weird seeing a baby that looks and acts just like a baby you've already seen before, 25+ years before. Baby William is 21st Century Will. He's already living in a bubble of happiness. Oh sure sometimes it bursts. For example, he got super pissed when he was pretend driving my Dad's truck and Dad turned the wheel to the right and baby William thought it should go to the left. That incited such rage from him that, for the first time, he was able to honk the horn. And that put him right back into his bubble. 

Baby William acts like life is a parade and he's the Grand Marshal. What a wonderful way to be able to look at the world. He waves at every car that drives by, every person he sees walking down the street, anyone he sees, he waves to them. It's like he's saying, "Hello, Earthlings. I am baby William!"

If his Dad is any indication, I don't think his bubble will burst anytime soon. He's got the bubble in his genes! 

For non-bubble dwellers such as myself, the best advice I can give you, surround yourself with as many bubble dwellers as possible. When you feel all is lost they will restore your faith. When you are crying they find a way to make you laugh. They will help you see that the world is a good place. 

I know what you're thinking, "What if my lack of bubble is too much and bursts their bubble? Am I abusing the bubble?" As long as you appreciate the bubble you're not abusing it. Just love your bubble-dweller. Be kind to the bubble. Talk to them about what it's like outside of the bubble. Not as a teaching experience or to burst the bubble, but because it will make them laugh and that will make you laugh. Laughter is the key to building a bubble of your very own. Even if that bubble is easily popped, for a while it will be magical.
