Suburban Kids

So, I don’t know if I mentioned this, but Latte and I watched my cousin’s kids this weekend (2 kids, 3 and 5, both girls). Well, to be more accurate, we took them out and about. It was fun, but these were definitely very suburban kids.

At one point we were taking them out to eat and they insisted that we should drive. Why? The eldest (about age 5) was certain it would be faster. They’re both in carseats/boosters and parking on the road the restaurant is on is bad and metered. Then they asked why our house is so small (our house is 3 bedroom/2 full bath, it’s not small but we don’t have rooms dedicated solely to entertaining). 

Latte’s favorite question she was asked was why we didn’t have kids yet. It still makes me giggle when I think about it. I think we gave a noncommittal answer (well, maybe someday). 

Anyway, it was amusing. We’re both looking forward to having one of our own. 🙂 Taking care of two kids wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

    My family are all small towners, and they often complain about how here in the city we have to walk EVERYWHERE. It’s one of my favorite parts of the city!

    I can’t imagine raising children in the suburbs. The communities here in the city with everything you could possibly want or need within a 5-block radius can’t be beat.

    Sounds like you guys had a nice time with the kids! Practice. 🙂

      The kids were young and where they live, they pretty much legit can’t walk to someplace to eat without it turning into a day long activity.
      Our city isn’t quite that dense, we tend to need to drive for groceries, but we aren’t living downtown and sometimes we drive so we can go to the cheaper places.
