A kids life for me everytime
By Value hunter on Oct 29, 2009 | In In real life
Now that I have been banished to the front doorstep as we have a new baby, IÂ see the neighbourhood kids more than I would normally do.
We live in a cul-de-sac and the neighbourhood kids are the life of "the street" - always something happening and it is guaranteed to be good fun.
I love kids, I used to be one, they have an approach to life that is so open and uncomplicated. No matter what their age, their imagination knows no bounds, it is disheartening to know that I will never be a kid again. I have always plodded on through life having a laugh, I don't take many things seriously and have found that providing the local kids with a lend of my cricket bat, football, footpump for their bikes, etc, has always brought some laughs.
Half the problems with society today and breakdown of family units can be eased by not dismissing kids out of hand, but remembering that they are just as adults used to be, before the world of work, money and pressure landed upon us.
Occasionally I will mention the local kids on here, their names limited to initials, such as K, D, M, etc. of course for their safety, as is the way in this "modern" world.
Anyways, this said, I bumped into D this afternoon... he has just started senior school (or high school as it is now called) I asked how he was doing at school, he loves it!
What is his favourite lesson? Maths!
Wow that's unusual, what do you want to do when you leave school? I want to join the army and fight for my country... with that, off he went up the street with his football cards.
A very respectable career choice, if only our armed forces were allowed to be armed forces and not glorified policemen, I'll let others inform him of this, I don't want to shatter any of D's dreams.
