There are many advantages to having children...having someone to care for you in your old age, the tax deduction, viewing holidays through their eyes, etc. But one of my favorites is that I can sit outside of construction sites and watch buildings go up, areas get excavated, and see large machinery at work.
I'm always in awe of construction sites and how it all comes together. Luckily my children also enjoy watching. In fact, one of my favorite memories is once watching a local grocery store being demolished and the operator of the power shovel waving to my son August...and then having the worker maneuver the arm of the power shovel to wave at him. What an amazing gift!
