Now I am too old to watch Spiderman cartoons on my own, which is why it is great that I can do so with my son! He's a great excuse for me to sit and relive my youth!
My youngest child enjoys saying that the care bears must be a million years old, the same age as me. As I stare at him I do not laugh because he made a funny statement but because I imagine the day when he is sitting at the table with his child and they make the same joke to him.
It is just a fact of life that kids get bored all of the time. Or at least they believe they are bored. The truth is that these days there is plenty for kids to do. Particularly as computers open up more and more of the world at the click of a mouse. However not much online is suitable for children. And it is always a good idea to get kids involved with activities that require them to be creative.
It's great that we have this enjoyment of Spiderman in common, it helps us connect and gives me a feeling of having a better bond with my son. I can talk to him about the Spiderman stories of my youth and his action packed adventures. Maybe it makes me a little "cooler", in his eyes, or at least I hope so!
