My son is board he does not know what to do,
I said to him lets go and work out at the gym.
He told me he was too young to do those adult
things, he wants more adventure than I can give.
My suggestion of outdoor pursuits have fallen on
deaf ears, he wants to play something indoors with
his peers. Whilst the leaves change colour
outdoors and all around he wanders indoors
looking out, thinking maybe I should go out.
Its not that outdoors is hard to endure it is the fact
that children get more comfortable indoors.
As the leaves fall and the day ticks by the boy
eventually decides to venture out so as to clear his
doubt of how cold or harsh the day may be.
When winter comes he will be glad of those
