The Call of the Child

I'm bored, she says. One week out of school, Christmas over, beautiful mild winter day outside and she says that she's bored. She got games, books, a ski tube, movies and music for Christmas but still she says, "I'm bored."

We adults hustle and bustle our way through life checking important tasks off of our "to do list" as we complete them. Do the laundry - check. Do the dishes - check. Get groceries - check. Shovel the walk, vacuum, chop kindling, take the garbage out, cook meals, clean up after cooking meals, tidy, mediate kiddie fights, drive everybody to their activities, shop....well, you get the idea.

What I wouldn't do to be bored right now!
