Deep Thoughts

How come, we, as children will fight tooth and nail not to have a nap,
only to find ourselves as adults, wishing with all of our hearts that
we could?

Why is it that if you want to get something done you can either do it
yourself, hire someone to do it, or forbid your kids to do it?

Why is it that we can spend hundreds of dollars on the latest safest
most educational toys for our toddlers only to discover that they like
playing with a plain cardboard box or the pots and pans?

Why is it that we spend the first two years of a child's life actively
encouraging the child to speak only to shush them for all the rest of
their years with us?

How come the stuff parents give children to do when they're bored is
more boring than being bored?
