To my NEIGHBORS

I am really sorry about the noise. 

There was a giant octopus while the kids were looking for treasure in the ocean, but really it was just the pool. 

I am really sorry about the noise.  

There was a dragon invading the castle and the boys had to protect the girls since they were knights and the girls were princesses, but really it was just the dogs and they were on the playground. 

I am really sorry about the noise. 

There was a problem on the spaceship, they were about to crash into a planet, but really the playground was the spaceship. 

I am really sorry about the noise. 

My daughter lost her powers and the other had to search for clues as to why she lost her powers, but really they were just in the backyard searching in the grass. 

I am really sorry about the noise. 

The robbers were trying to take the diamonds in the museum and the police were chasing them, but really my sons were the robbers and my daughters were the police and they were chasing each other around the yard. 

Yes, I am sorry they are loud, but they are happy. They are outside and using their imaginations. My backyard is full of adventures. Adventures that us adults would dream about doing again. No care in the world. No bills to pay. Just constant adventures. 

I want them to stay little forever. So yes, if they are loud for a little bit, I want to continue to hear their laughter, I want to continue to hear their little voices as long as I can, because one day. It will be silent. One day they will be all grown up. Let them be young just a little longer.
