baby trying ice water for the first timeEvery single time I watch this 35 second video of Michael Chepul's baby boy drinking ice water for the first time my face breaks into a HUGE smile and my heart swells. The video reminds me of a lyric from the song "Jack and Diane" by John Mellencamp. The line goes, "Oh yeah life goes on. Long after the thrill of living is gone." This gorgeous baby is nowhere near losing the thrill of living. It's all a magical marvelous wonderland full of exciting new experiences and the best part of it all is that a child's enthusiasm is contagious that's why us jaded grown ups need to be exposed to it. Am I right or am I so right? The only correct answer is that I am right and that's why I urge you to watch this video.
