Childhood Visions

Modern, plastic playground.

Thoughts of childhood

That’s not mine.

No memories.

Only thoughts of kids trapped in plastic.

Old-fashioned, wooden playground,

Old-fashioned, wooden swing set,

Happy, refreshing thoughts of my own childhood,

Thoughts of swinging in trees!

Secret hiding places,

Hide-and-seek,

And untamed spirits of wood.

Parent and Child

Parent, child,

Play, appreciate, understand.

Playing together all the time,

Growing up together.

Children

Tough on parents

Diminish marital satisfaction

Kids grow up

Require less care

Make parents proud

Unhappiness melts away.

Children=Long-term investment in happiness
