I like kids bc they don’t judge me when I bite the heads off of animal crackers.

i really do love kids. they have so much to offer. not only do they teach me life lessons, they just see life for what it is. simple. they dont complicate things, bc they cant.

somtimes all i can think about are kids. a lot of the time i think about how i wish i could be around them. they are so easy to talk to, well, some...but i love the fact that they arent thinking about what shirt you are wearing, or what you do in your spare time, or how involved you are at school or church...they just want to be with you. they want your time. they just want to use their imagination and play. they dont always need to talk.

sometimes i get really tired and annoyed with small talk. i hate it when people can spend minutes upon minutes talking about what they are going to do for the rest of the day, or what they are going to wear tomorrow or why their grandmothers friends dog got sick. if any of you know me, you know im not a deep person and i don’t spend all my time talking about deep theological things, but sometimes I want to spend time conversing with others about simple fun things, like inventions and what thoughts went through inventors minds, or why pomegranates look so different on the inside.

sometimes i can get really selfish, bc it doesn’t and shouldn’t ever matter what I want to talk about.

we should all be more like kids. just be. don’t think about things that don’t matter. i mean, i do, a lot of the time, but im trying not to.

i need to go to the zoo.

this doesn’t have anything to do with my post, I mean, its about kids, but i thought it was funny. sunday nights i help teach a little kids class, and i asked one of the boys (who sort of has special needs) to pray before we get started, and this is what he prayed…’dear God, I thank you that we love you, and i thank you that my birthday is next week, im gonna be six…, and forever. amen.’

this same boy is on my upward team, and he was dribbling down the court on saturday, and this boy said, ‘nathaniel! pass it to me!’ and he turned around and said, ‘I KNOW WHAT IM DOING!’ (and then he scored). so cute. i love kids.
