Oh to be a kid again...

I love how any found object can be turned into something creative. Like, one warm fall day at the park, after running around in the grass, they found sticks and decided they were dinosaur tails.

Or how they can turn a roll of masking tape into a fun toy by rolling it back and forth to each other on the floor...
Or how having frosting on your face is adorable...
Or how garbage day is hours of entertainment...
Or how running around in their underwear is okay...
Or how playing with playdoh provides hours of creative entertainment...
Or how finding a feather turns into a story of where it came from...
Or how making food into faces on their plate is the coolest thing ever...Having young children teaches me to look at the everyday things differently, to find joy in simplicity, to appreciate nature, to slow down and take it all in.
Don't you wish you were a kid again?

It sounds like a lot of fun at your house! My husband still gets excited about seeing garbage trucks. ;)

You should see the excitement when our neighbors got a new driveway! I could barely peel them away from the window.
