Today I’m grateful for the boundless energy of little kids, and hope to claim some for my own use.
Small Human’s birthday party was today. They turned three last week. I was at the house with 7 of my family members, 5 members of a friend’s family, 7 other three year olds, AND their mothers. Three is a generally fun age, and all of the small ones were genuinely well behaved but it was still a lot of action, everywhere, all the time. I think “sensory overload” is an applicable term. I spent a lot of it discussing dinosaurs with a 5 year old who wants to be a paleontologist. He could do well.
My extended family left after the party. I ate with those who remained afterward. Small Human was in a funny mood and was highly entertaining through the meal. We had an enjoyable time. I’m worn out – chasing little people is hard work!
