Child at Heart

I think by the time you're in sixth grade, you're supposed to have outgrown some things. You maybe are supposed to think the zoo is boring. You definitely aren't interested in G-rated movies. And the pumpkin patch? Pffft. That's for babies.

Babies named Mila, of course.

If Alexis were an only child, I'd probably have to drag her to bunches of things, if I even bothered to drag her. But since Mila is around, we get to continue all of the little kid things for a few more years. It's only fair considering Alexis got to enjoy all of those things. Mila should have the same opportunities.

Which, she super appreciates them. Every little adventure is a great adventure.

Alexis, though. In theory Alexis is too old for all of these things. BUT SHE TOTALLY ISN'T. She enjoys every second of the shenanigans as well.

I already knew this because I've witnessed it a bunch of times. Thus, when I overheard a thing I wasn't supposed to overhear, I wasn't entirely shocked. I did laugh, though.

"Mila," Alexis whispered, "Go ask mom if we can go to the My Little Pony movie."

So much for being too old for things.
