Even at the ripe old age of five, Aidan loves looking at baby pictures of himself and listening to the stories behind them. He often wonders about life before he was born too, astonished to find out his father and I did things without him before he existed. At his age he has a hard time believing his parents were kids once. We tell him all kinds of stories about what we loved to do when we were little, and our old childhood photos generate more conversation on the topic. They are the concrete evidence to a past he's never experienced but wants to understand.
Sharing those moments of my life isn't just "another thing to do" with my son, it reminds me that I was a kid once too; something I try to keep in mind when little hands are tugging at me to come play.
What helps remind you that you were a kid once too?
