During the childhood years there's a lot to be said for getting older. With age, kids gain greater independence and control over their lives. They get to eat food that hasn't been pre-chopped into minuscule bites, drink out of a real cup, and even play out in the yard alone. Not to mention the freedom that comes with learning to read and riding a two-wheeled bike.
My six year old has obviously reached most of those milestones already, but being the youngest in our family is still height challenged, and working on the reading and bike riding thing. I sense his frustration at times as he watches his older siblings do things that he can't yet manage.
Watching him play the other day though made me realize something...little kids have more fun.
Yes, that's bubble wrap that he's walking in, because at six, he can still do that without feeling like he's too old. Simple pleasures are awesome!
