not-so-tough question: what's the best thing about being a kid?

Pin It
the other day, we were driving on the highway coming home from the store.  i noticed it had gotten really quiet in the backseat.  that's when i saw this:

it made me think of all the great things about being a kid... like this one: being able to go to sleep whenever and where ever you want.

I always love looking back and seeing my kids just hanging out or sleeping in the backseat of the car. This is a really great post and I love the idea of asking simple questions of our kids to get their perspective on life.
