“When your big kid asks you to do something, as often as you can, say yes.
Quick pitstop at Starbucks? Yes.
Wandering aimlessly around Target? Yes.
Watching a TikTok they find hilarious but you don’t get it? Yes.
Proofread a paper? Yes.
Watch them play a new VR game? Yes.
To be invited into their world is a privilege.
To have an unexpected late-night conversation. To have them ask your opinion on their clothes. To go out for an impromptu supper date.
Just being with them, in any capacity, is something to treasure.
Say yes. Just say yes.
You will never regret the precious time you get with your bigs. No matter how old they get.
Go. Do. Be with them.”
