I hope that I can be a little like the father in this story: http://gamesbyemail.com/WoodTape/Default.htm
Kids are smart if we let them be. If my kid ever asks me for the “wood tape” or any other nonsensical item, I hope to have the patience to go along with their plan, no matter how outlandish is seems.
In my line of work, I don’t really get to use the word “no” and that is a great thing. When confronted with a challenge, the answer should never be “no”. I hope to respond with “what are we really trying to do?” or “how else can we accomplish this?”
Kids can seriously teach us a few things about doing the impossible or looking at things in a different way.
Kids are not asses. It is not possible. So at what age do we become eligible in ass-ness?
