My childhood was filled of epic adventures. I was a ninja, a dragon slayer, and a member of the A-Team. Like many kids of my generation I had few toys and the ones I did have were primary hand-me downs from my older cousins that out grew them. My imagination became the best toy I had.
Even now as an adult my imagination is the best source of entertainment. Maybe that is the source of why my kids have such games as “Help the Dragon” and “Rocket Ship”. One of the best things of being a father is spending the free time with my kids. As they are getting older their imagination is allowing them to have those epic adventures that I once had as a kid.
Recently, my brother in law came over and made a house for them our of an empty cardboard box. Similar to the video above. That box has been the center piece of our recent adventures.
I have no scientific data to back up my theory. But, I suspect giving your children the ability to use their imagination will not only give them a better childhood. But, it will make them a better person.
If you don’t want to encourage your kids to have a creative imagination. I encourage you buy them this grappling hook.
You can thank me later. When they become Ninjas!
The last few weeks I have been dealing with my son illness. The frustrating part as a parent is having the doctors know knowing why he is sick.
This ordeal all began with a fever. After 6 days of a continuing fever our primary physician went through the entire check list and found no cause. So, on day 7 my son Hex was admitted into our local hospital.
After 2 weeks and dozens of blood, urine, and other test that I have never heard before. The only conclusive answer has been. ?He still has a fever and we have no reason why?.
The one thing I have learned is that your own body knows there is something wrong and begins to fight it. Every blood results indicated his White Blood Cells were higher. So, they new his body was trying to make him better.
So, on day 12 his fever stopped they took his I.V on day 13 and day 15th he was released from the hospital.
While at the hospital I kept waiting for a team of specialist coming in with Haznet suits to prevent the spread of what ever my son had. I kept wondering if my son had crazy virus that has never been detected would we get to name it.
The other scenario that I kept day dreaming about was the guy from the Television show House coming in and telling me had this and that and we will need to treat him with a shot of water into his left leg.
But, I am glad that none of that happen and my son is now home keeping up with midnight feedings.
Also, thank everyone who txt me, e-mailed me, and Twittered ?Get well soon? messages.
THANK YOU ALL
I enjoy to spend time with both of my kids. Althought he misses is out I am not running like a headless chicken on my own.
I guess the key is to try and keep them both happy because once they both start crying I think that is when I am in trouble.
For the people who have called on the phone they have witness first hand the sound of two children crying at the same time.
Good Times I tell you!
