Six ways kids under seven are different from adults

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

[UPDATE: Three more items added on April 2, 2004.]

  1. When hands need to be wiped, any nearby surface, regardless of its composition, will do. (Kleenex? Bathroom mirror? Fancy silky white holiday dress? Bedsheets? A parent's hair? Priceless mahogany carving? All fine.)

  2. Ketchup is worth fighting over.

  3. Puddles are to be gone through, never around.

  4. Being carried bodily from one room to another without waking up is no problem at all.

  5. Car windows are always better open, even if it is raining, sleeting, or well below freezing outside.

  6. They can dress in ways no adult could get away with (outside a Pride Parade, anyway).

Or maybe it's just my kids.
