People are always telling kids to enjoy childhood, because “it’s the best time of your life!”
While I most certainly want my children to enjoy this time, when responsibilities are minimal and imagination takes them to places adults can never dream of, I have to disagree that it’s the best time of life.
Parenthood is the best time. Being pregnant, giving birth, watching your infant grow into a toddler, and your toddler grow into a child. First steps, first days of school, and every milestone in between. Watching in wonder as the little people you created learn new things and develop personalities.
Nothing beats this, and nothing can ever come close.
