Ever since Ava started crawling around it's not uncommon to hear me say,"No no baby, those are daddy's toys."
These and other instances make me wonder sometimes. Am I getting too old for this? Should I trade in all my LEGO for a set of golf clubs? Are cartoons really just for kids? Is it really so strange that I prefer "childish" entertainment such as video games, over traditional "grown-up" pass times like golf? (I'm totally not ragging on golf. I even have my Golfing merit badge. It's just one of those games you're "supposed" to play when you get older to network or something. It's just not my game I guess. Well, I hear Mario Golf's pretty good, but I'm starting to ramble here.) I dare say nay! I'm turning 30 soon and I'm not getting too old for this. Rather, I believe I'm getting too old to worry about what people think of my love of all things awesome.
I know other fellow collectors of awesome have had these same doubts. I'm sure you've all come across well meaning family and friends that feel you should ditch your childhood already. How do you overcome and keep that geek flag flying? Or am I totally off base here? Do I need to "put away childish things" (1Corinthians 13:11)? What do you think?
