My son has recently turned double digits! He’s now 10, and the time just flew by…
I think he’s had a good childhood to this point, but there are things that I didn’t get to do with him that I wanted to do.
So I thought I’d list some of my regrets:
- Playing scientist: I envisioned my son and I doing experiments down in the basement, inventing things and learning the properties of various materials. While I still might have a little time left, some of the magic is gone.
- Building a FireHouse: I always wanted to build my son a firehouse for his fire engines. I procrastinated and he got a pre-assembled wooden firestation for a present from a grandparent. I did build an additional extension that attaches to the initial structure.
- Motorcycle or Go Kart Riding: I always wanted to get my son a minibike, small motorcycle, or a go kart… But since I don’t have the land to run these, I never did this. So my son had to settle for his grandpa’s riding lawnmower and occassioinally driving my car in the junior high parking lot. We also raced gocarts at a paid place.
- Reading the Harry Potter book: I wanted to read this with my son, but life got busy and complicated so we only got to start it and it fell by the wayside. We did read a few encylopedia brown books thought!
After thinking about it, I haven’t done as bad as I thought! But the time has gone quickly! For the next project, we are going to build a fort roof for his swing (for shade).
