Posted on Facebook today: Seriously people, I don’t dislike children!!
But I’m still amused.
I have OPK (Other People’s Kids) in that 2nd – 6th grade range, and I have to say I greatly enjoy them in general. They’re balancing on this fantastic edge of “I want to be cool, so I’m attempting smart-ass-ery” and “I’m still a kid who’s totally entertained by cartoons, still likes my teddy bear and Mom, and is easily entertained by furniture forts.”
Recently one of my favorite kids in the universe turned 15…and got her driver’s permit. THAT horrifies me. Not enough to lynch 9th graders though…even they’re still generally ok in my book.
