-to see the world

-to not be left behind

-to not be left out of the fun

-to explore the mud

-to ride "caaaa(r)"

This kid bolts for the door (and what lies beyond) whenever anyone else goes outside. Shoes or no shoes, with no consideration for whether mommy is wearing pants or not. We have all chased him (sometimes wearing pants), and the boy runs fast. Out into the street. Down the sidewalk. Wherever he can go as fast as his little legs can move. So who was I to begrudge him of the pleasure of this experience, the outdoors, despite having been rather sick the day before. It is of the worst kind of torture to make a child watch from the window while his buddies are having fun.
