I really miss my kids being young. The stuff we used to do was great. Stuff, as teens, we just don’t do anymore.

There is a children’s park in the town we live in that is so cool for little kids. There are huge metal things to climb on, slide on, swing on and hang on. There are big dirt diggers - what do kids like to do more than dig in the dirt - and an automated bubble maker.

Best of all is a “dancing” water fountain. My kids used to love going to the park in their bathing suits, sometimes just regular play clothes, and jump in the jets of water that shot out of a blue dolphin.

The delight, the exuberance, the unbridled joy these kids and moms are having playing together is contagious. You can’t help but come away in a good mood.

Can’t do that with my kids now. Bringing a high school kid to play in a fountain would probably be frowned on, and most likely get the attention of the local law enforcment agency. Of course, as a high school kid having your mom join you and your friends at the beach is seriously uncool too.

My little ones are 9 and 6. I really miss those baby years. I miss breastfeeding and I miss that distinct baby smell. Kids grow up so quickly. It's sad, but it is great to see them turn into little people.
