I took some Saturday-morning cartooning classes when I was around their age, and now that they have too, there is nothing left that I could do as a kid that they can’t. But there’s plenty that they can do that I can’t, even as an adult.
|My kids||Me as a kid||Me as an adult|
|Succeeding at school/work||yes||yes||yes|
|Inexhaustible capacity for enjoying Star Wars and Lego||yes||yes||no|
|Playing a musical instrument||yes||no1||kinda|
1“Hot Cross Buns” on the recorder doesn’t count.
It’s like they’re not ordinary kids. They’re… superkids!
