Who wants to grow up? I mean, seriously, look at Miss O, sleeping away the afternoon. Olivia and the techno-tot are assisting me today in my writing endeavors. He is playing on the Wii and she is sleeping. I am not sure what I want to do.. nap, or work on my Wii elbow!
Kids grow up so fast, heck I grew up too fast. I should have chosen the second star to the right and kept going to morning. I never wanted to be big, I wanted to stay in 5th grade forever. Ah well..
The road not traveled..
Of course, being an adult is not so bad. You get to be a dad, and eventually, a pappy. That is fun too. And you know what? You can still keep those things you learned as a kid. You can still eat chocolate chip cookies and drink milk, take a nap, play games. Keep the child like wonder firmly in your grasp.
Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday we were bringing home the first boyo, now here I sit with that boyo's daughter. I have no doubt that in a couple of dozen years I will be sitting next to her baby wondering, where did the time go? Still hard to imagine better 1/2 and me are grandparents. I am cool with that, but I still think of us as crazy kids.
Maybe that is the real magic Peter Pan was trying to show Wendy. That time is relative and you stay young by holding the values you learn as a child, the simple truths. I think that is that one thing, the one thing Curly was talking about out on the range.
And you know, I like that.
