The park

Postby dropshipbob » Wed Jun 20, 2007 4:40 pm

So today I met my wife and little boy at the park. There were already four kids there with their Dad playing on the swingset.

One of the kids, who appeared to be 10 or so was sitting off to one side playing by himself with some cars and trucks. He seemed to be a little mentaly underdeveloped, but seemed nice. He kept calling his other brother and sisters to play with him, but none would. He asked my son if he wanted to play, which he happily obliged untill his attention wavered and he ran off to play on the slide.
He does that, jumps from one thing to another.
I felt bad for the 10 y.o., he just wanted someone to play with him and I felt badly that my son was abandoning him. How do I explain this? What can I even say that any kid, 10 years old or not, would understand?

And this made me think back to when I was that age.

Or brought him to MT and me. We would have split the net.
