Sticks and Stones

I can almost guarantee… if you have little ones and we are outside…they will find sticks. Or stones. They they will be ninjas. Or pirates. They will swing them at me. They will jump in the air. They will find the biggest most deadly stick or stone and poke you with it.

Because that is what kids do. And I let them… because I love to see kids being them.

They will kiss you sweetly. And then lick your face.

Because that’s what kids do.

They will find the puddle.

They will jump in it.

They  will stare into space and pretend I’m not there.

They will make goofy faces.

They will giggle.

That’s… what kids do…

And that’s what I get to catch.
