What Childhood Should Look Like

I found a handwritten schedule penned by 8-year-old Mary the other day.  Here was her agenda for the day:

1.  Say hi to mom.

2.  Kiss Eds

3.  Ride bike and pick berries

4.  Eat food

5.  Play with Camille

6.  Play with Legos

7.  Play with Eds

8.  Catch butterflies

9.  Eat snack

10.  Play with Eds

11.  Play with Pat and Meg

12.  Try and play with Chris

A perfect list for childhood, right?

I thought so too.
