Long weekends always mess me up…
I barely get to hang out with the kids during the week and regular weekends are such a blur of birthday parties and errands that I hardly notice their passage. But with Friday of last week off and the kids now 6 and almost 3, it feels like we all got to really hang out and reconnect for the first time in ages.
Which is cruel, because now they’re in bed already and tomorrow I’m gone for the week once again.
Anyway, at least I was reminded of the awesomeness of kids after way too much time spent in the company of adults lately. Here are five reasons why kids are awesome, relearned over the last three days:
1. They believe in magic.
2. They are utterly unselfconscious and say exactly what they mean.
3. They are boundlessly enthusiastic.
4. They never walk, but run everywhere they go, even into the next room.
5. Laughter is their default setting, it’s really hard to make them not laugh.
Awesomeness all around. If anyone needs me, I’ll be back at work tomorrow – looking forward to the next long weekend.
