Child vs. Grown-up

Nik and I are in the nursery in our ward and really enjoy it. I don't want kids for a long time now... :) Nik particularly likes it because he gets to play with toys and little kids for two hours, and heck, that is better than the grown-up alternative. Nik has invented a new game with our nursery little ones: he lays down and announces that he is tired and going to take a nap. This alerts the kids that it is time to jump on Brother Nik and wake him up. He then makes a show of waking up and waits a little bit before needing another nap. I think Nik enjoys this almost more than the kids do. Which is great. That means that I get to build with the blocks.

This little-kid attitude was reinforced yesterday when we were at Lou and Ten's house and Nik spent the evening playing with Noah. Noah is a big fan of light sabers and, you guessed it, so is Nik, so this is a great time had by all. Nik has also taught Noah how to use his Force powers, so the play isnt as physical as it used to be. I love that my husband is so young at heart. He has so much fun bringing out the inner child with his nieces and nephews that sometimes I have a hard time getting the Grown-up Nik back.

I know that Nik will be a great Dad someday, and I hope that our kids will help keep their dad young for many more years. Love you Baby.

Nik will always be a child in heart. I think that comes from living in Never Never Land for so long. I love how he is with Noah. He is awesome
