Carefree innocence became
Soon heavy with age

Your Haiku left me a bit wistful! It goes perfectly with his sliding out of the shadows into the light of the real world.

He's obviously having such fun!!

WHEN YOU SEE THE SHADOWS DANCE

When you see the shadows dance,
Be it Mexico or France,
You may join the shadow fun,
Dancing till the day is done!

That's very sweet -- we should all slide down a tube and see what it does for us.
