9 Things My Kids Do So Much Better Than Me

9 Things My Kids Do So Much Better Than MeI spend a lot of my day with the kids reading and playing and hanging out together when they’re not in school. It’s fun to watch them grown and change over short periods of time and they always seem to amaze me with something new.

My kids can’t wait to grow up. They think that being 10 years old is exciting, but they’re always talking about how they can’t wait to be adults. I can see their fascination with adults, who seem to get away with a lot more than kids and have more freedom when they’re making all their own choices. They seem to think being an adult mans that you’re better at every activity and it’s way better than being a kid.

I don’t always see it that way though. There are some things, practical or not, that my kids are just better at than me. Without even trying!

Scroll through to see 9 things that my kids do so much better than I do:

  • Not Worrying About the Small Things 1 of 9
    Not Worrying About the Small Things
    I'ts not that kids don't have things they could worry about, mine just seem to choose not to worry. They're able to let the small things go and find the happy in nearly everything.

    Whether they're trying to get out of going to bed or reasons for why their room isn't cleaned yet -- they have a wild imagination for excuses.

    Seeing the Great in Mundane Things
    The smallest things always seem to make my kids so happy. The cardboard box, an afternoon with bubbles -- it doesn't take much.

    If my kids are angry or upset about something -- they never seem to be for long. They have a great ability to get over things and be happy again. No grudge holding or anything.

  • Entertaining Themselves 7 of 9
    Entertaining Themselves
    It doesn't take a whole lot for my kids to be entertained for hours. Building blocks or some crayons and paper and that all it seems to take.

  • Learning Something New 8 of 9
    Learning Something New
    They pick up on things so fast! I am trying to learn French along with them while they're in French Immersion school, but they're just so much quicker with ti.

  • Making New Friends 9 of 9
    Making New Friends
    It doesn't matter where we are or what we're doing -- if there's another kid there, they will become friends. I am still trying to figure out how to do that.
