SammySocks Etc. Blog - Comments and Observations from Someone Who Is a Retired Educator and Sammy’s Dad
Hi! I remember as a young lad that I couldn’t wait for my birthday. I was going to be a year older and in just one day! It was difficult for me to imagine that I am one age on one day and the next day I am a whole year older. I even asked my mom exactly the time of day that I was born. It was some time around 10 o’clock in the morning. So on the day of my birthday I would think, “Okay, I woke up being one age and then being the next age when I went to bed.” I even imagined that I could tell that I was older when the clock turned 10 o’clock.
The birthday this hit home the most was when I changed from the age of 9 to the age of 10. I went from single digits to double digits and from one decade into two. I couldn’t wait. (On an unrelated note, I also thought it was pretty significant when writing the date on my papers in high school changed from 1969 to 1970 – a whole new decade!)
Couldn’t wait. Lots of things fall in the “Couldn’t Wait!” category. Things like turning from 9 to 10, turning 16, getting a driver’s license, turning 18, being able to vote, turning 21, turning 26 so my car insurance rates would go down. These are age related. Other “Couldn’t Waits” have included learning to ride a bike, going on the first sleep over, first date, first job, high school and college graduation, first (and second and third and fourth) child, opportunity to join AARP, Medicare, Social Security, and retirement. Lots of “Couldn’t Waits”. Some of these may be part of your “Couldn’t Waits”, too. I am sure you have others of your own.
Life is full of “Couldn’t Waits”. Enjoy yours.
