As we drove to the beach the other day, Dave and I caught a glimpse of Zeph taking a good long look at his legs. Moments later he asked;
"Umm Dad, how will my legs still fit me when I grow up?"
"What do you mean, mate?"
"I mean, when I keep growing up into a school boy, will my legs still fit me? I mean, how will they work"
"Oh, they'll grow with you mate, they'll keep up with the rest of your body"
The innocence of youth, easily the most intriguing and beautiful thing i've ever witnessed.
In my story I stated that 'having a child was almost as good as being one'. I was referring to the excellence of my own childhood, but these days I beg to differ. Raising children, watching them grow, guiding them through new discoveries and teaching them that their legs will grow along with the rest of their body is easily the most excellent thing i've ever experienced. Easily.
