Amazing how some things are forever (relatively, anyway) -- diamonds, heroes, and having fun with one of the simplest inventions ever: the hula hoop.
Recently, we picked up a pair of the plastic hoops and my kids have been in hula heaven. My five-year-old girl especially loves them. She will stand in the living room, hoops at the ready and demand attention: "Daddy! Watch me do hula!" "Daddy, watch me dance and hula!" "Daddy, watch me jump and hula!"
I don't know where all this enthusiasm came from. But it's cool.
What I do know is that there are few moments in life clearer than this: "Daddy! Daddy! Doing two hula hoops is like doing one except you use two."
