Bafflement and befuddlement
Wonder is great—that kind of respectful awe. But if you were in a state of wonder all the time, that would be bafflement.
The note above was written on a piece of paper I was carrying around with me. Probably I was working on a presentation on wonder. I like the word "bafflement" and I liked "befuddled," but try not to stay in those states long, because your kids need for you to be clear and sharp.
