As I have officially gone over the hill, I am looking for all sorts of ways to both look and feel young. I try to eat the right foods (most of the time) and I exercise (most of the time). But I have come to realize that the father and son activities that I experience with my son go a long way towards keeping my youth in me. This is especially true when we get down on the floor and play with his toys. Rolling and scooting and bending for an hour on the floor is actually a decent workout if you really get into it like your young son would want you to.
Hot Wheels Cars: Going Back in Time.
I have always loved Hot Wheels Cars. When I was young, brother and I would get on the opposite ends of the hallways and crash the cars into each other. We would do this endlessly. Whenever I am starting to field old, I love to look at my son and see myself again as an 8-year-old. It is almost like traveling back in time. Do any other dads ever have this feeling? Playing with Hot Wheels has become both of our favorite father and son activities. I used to read in bed past my bedtime as well. Last night, I walked by my sons bedroom door about 90 minutes past his bedtime, and there he was, reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I just couldn’t get mad at him. It is exactly the same thing that I used to when I was his age. We have been having a ton of fun with this Hot Wheels race cars lately. What father and son activities do you other dads love?
