For my birthday, James gave me (among other things) these old roller skates and a copy of Little House on the Prairie. Those gifts might seem appropriate for a five year old and not a twenty five year old but apparently I am going through some sort of mid-mid life crisis.
Of course, it could be due to the fact that for the past few months, I've been working part time at the coolest kids' store in town. Being there is wonderful, it makes me want to teach kindergarten and that is something I have never wanted to do. My days are filled with stocking small wooden instruments, playing with three year olds, folding tiny baby clothes, and wrapping up small gifts. It is very fun and makes me remember how cool it is to be a kid.
No, I am not going to birth a child anytime soon, I have ten almost eleven nieces and nephews and that will have to do for now.
Let me share some favorite kid related links:
