I have to admit that I often think about when I was young and how I enjoyed my life when I was a kid.
There was hardly a care in the world when we were youngsters and we could do just about anything without being too stressed out. Becoming an adult and acquiring a load of responsibilities sort of killed things for me. Of course at the same time, I wouldn’t change it for the world because I couldn’t imagine my life without my beautiful wife, and my children. For the most part, I try to make my kids happy just like I was when I was young. When they ask me for things like the latest video game system for example, I will get something like that for a special occasion like their birthday or Christmas. I try not to spoil everybody too much though. For example, my son asked me if he could have a window A/C unit in his bedroom. I had to ask him why he wanted that and he was saying that he just wanted to be more comfortable in his bedroom and he wanted to be able to adjust his own temperature control settings. I honestly didn’t think he needed anything fancy like that and I didn’t want energy bills to spike, so I told him it just wasn’t necessary and he could get his own climate control system when he lived on his own. He was a little bit disappointed but it didn’t take him long to get over it. I also didn’t want him to be spoiled and want to be confined to his bedroom all the time with a window A/C unit.
