The craziness of modern life is hard to escape, unless you are a little boy. Then, you walk around somewhat oblivious to the rest of the world and think that it’s perfectly normal to wear a pair of swimming goggles as a fashion accessory.
And why not?
When you’re three years old, life your only job is to play. At times it may feel like the only job that your child has is to make messes for you to clean up. That’s their job too.
A few weeks ago, we took a camping trip to the beach with some other families. Mr. Grey had a great time playing in the sand with his buddy Mr. Curtin. Literally, these two boys spent about six hours digging in the sand and getting exceptionally messy. (My car was a mess after the ride home).
Nevertheless, Mr. Grey is starting to show signs of growing up. He is starting to get the hang of riding his bike. He’s asking to go play with other kids in the neighborhood. It’s fun to watch, but there is a part of me who wants that little dude who wore the ever so classic “iPoop” shirt when he was 8 weeks old back.
Okay, sanity just arrived – I don’t really want that guy back, he cried and puked too much.
