I'd like to suggest that maybe we don't need a time machine, but just time with a 5 or 6-year old. Lately, my time with Cole has been high quality and super good for the soul. I mean, when you're 5, here are the things that you do:
- clothes pin a card to your bike spokes to accomplish a "motor" like sound
- watch a show about dogs that have rescue jobs at lunch. everyday.
- see an empty paper towel roll and figure you should make a replica of your dog out of it.4. have a race to the mailbox.5. use your mom as a step stool to reach the Star Wars book at the library by yourself6. play model trains with a car filled with candy that makes frequent stops7. spontaneous games of hide and seek8. play board games daily9. take many moments to just hug a while10. half days of schoolPerhaps you're feeling a little less stressed just reading this list! You're welcome.
