It was wonderfully refreshing to experience a little bit of the world through the eyes of a 5 year old. Kudos to my early childhood friends that do this on a daily basis! I still don't think I could handle a room full of them 5 days a week. She is this incredibly curious, sweet, literally had me laughing out loud, wanted to hold my hand and get over her fear of dogs just so we could "be friends" kid. It was adorable. In addition to this girl, there are another handful or two of kids in the neighborhood who seem to be so curious. They're constantly looking for help while playing girls v. boys "Cops and Robbers" or 500. They also now know me as Ms. Amy, the lady with the "G" on the door. I love that my neighborhood is safe enough for the kids to run around in and close-knit enough that the parents let the kids run from house to house and yard to yard. I also love that the kids tend to hang out outside, even though it's pretty toasty during the day.
