There are many days when I look at my kids and find myself jealous of them.
They have an almost complete lack of responsibility. Outside of my nine year old daughter’s homework and some very minimal chores at home, these children don’t have much on their daily list of things to accomplish.
They have energy I can only dream about. Oh wait, I don’t sleep. That’s another thing. They snooze right through the night. Every night.
They skip, climb trees, and swing. Life is fun.
The other day my Mom was visiting, and she asked how much my daughter weighs. I replied, “Sixty-one pounds.”
And I added “Not Ashamed of Their Weight” to my list of jealousies, when my daughter piped in, “Don’t forget the point four!”
