Pink Happy Birthday

This kinda goes along with the last post...

I've talked on this blog before about my childcare job I do twice a week, and even though kids can be difficult sometimes, I do really enjoy my job. Because I've found that spending time with younger kids can be more fulfilling than hanging out with my peers.

Now, don't get me wrong; there's a lot of times where I would rather spend time with my peers than go to work.

But let me tell you why I like spending time with younger kids as well as my peers.

Kids take you as you are. They don't care about what you look like or how you act. You can be silly and weird with them and they like that. You don't have to put up a front with them. It's not like you have to act a certain way around them; you can simply be yourself.

Kids can affirm you. I know that as adults we're suppose to be mentoring and encouraging the younger ones, but often times I feel so encouraged by the younger ones around me. I have to say that I've probably gotten more love and encouragement from younger kids than I have my peers and other adults.

Kids normally don't expect anything. They don't expect you to be like they are. They're normally just happy  that you're there, with them.

Kids don't expect you to make conversation. They love to talk to you or they don't mind just chilling without talking at all. There's no such thing as an 'awkward silence' when you're with little ones.

Kids don't care what you think of them. They don't really have a filter and will just spout off whatever is on their mind. They're not concerned with looking silly or weird. And some of the things they say are... interesting. (Don't worry, we'll straighten them out when they get older. :D)

Ok this has been a long post so I guess it's time to wrap it up. But I'm curious; can you think of any other awesome attributes that kids have that we lose as we grow up?

  1. I think little kids are often nice except when they are the type that go out of hand. Today when I was running my 10k race the overall winner was RUNNING WHILE CARYING HIS CHILD In A BABY STROLLER! That little kid in the stroller must have had one thrill of a run they've speed around insanely fast while his/ her father was running . I could never do that! It was amazing seeing how this guy was able to care for his kid and win a 10k at the same time !

    1. Yes well sometimes kids can get a little out of hand for sure. Then they can be a bit of a pain but I think for the most part they are such a blessing. Wow that is crazy! That kid probably had a great time! Thanks for sharing that, Evan!

  2. I love spending time with little kids! :) I agree with a lot that you said, Ashley. :)
