Childhood is a season that is short but oh so sweet. When you are a child, in many ways, it feels like growing up takes a long time, but those of us who are parents know that childhood is over in the blink of an eye.
The older we get, the harder it is to recall specific memories from childhood. Thankfully, watching our son, Opie, grow up serves as a reminder that childhood is a time to be cherished and enjoyed. Let kids be kids!
The truth is, children can do all kinds of things that adults can’t (or won’t) and that’s a huge part of what makes them so charming and fun to be around! Children have such incredible minds - They’re bubbling over with creative ideas and spontaneous actions. The phrase “kids say the darndest things” exists for a reason. Children tend to be so straightforward and honest when it comes to making observations and letting us know how they see the world around them. Sometimes it’s in a way that makes us laugh or turn ten shades of red in embarrassment, but you have to admire their candor! Children aren’t afraid to ask for what they want or need. They share their thoughts and opinions easily, without fear of judgment. Yes, they might ask you a thousand unanswerable questions in a day and drive you crazy, but they’re also just so lovable! Basically, we could all learn a lot from children.
If you have kids that you care about in your life, you know how special and magical they are! They’re always growing, always learning, always observing, and always ready to show you new things they can do. If you ask us, childhood is pretty incredible.
