“I wish you could sleep over. That way we could catch frogs all night.”
My 6-year-old sister said this to her little boyfriend a few minutes ago, and it got me thinking. Remember those evenings when you used to catch frogs in your backyard? Those times when you’d run outside and play tag with your dear friends? The way you’d laugh as you admired the sunset? The way you welcomed the cold air that so often turned your nose and cheeks red? I know you remember. So, tell me. Why did you stop? Growing up doesn’t mean you have to lose your childlike sense of wonder.
