Give young children a balloon, helium optional, they will go crazy with it until the inevitable happens. The first time we exposed the toddler to a balloon, she started crawling after it, smacking, it, and making the excited grunt that she was doing at the time. What is the fascination?
All a balloon is a rubber bag filled with someone’s breath or helium. I know at one point, I had that fascination. I remember having a temper tantrum as I watched a red one take to the sky. I clearly have lost something and I am sure I am not the only one. Maybe we should take some time and relearn what was so fascinating with them?
