Childhood is short, maturity is forever

Keenan couldn’t help but smile as he watched Perry help his younger brother and sister get ready to head off to school. It felt like it wasn’t so very long ago that Perry was in their shoes – getting ready to go to a magic school for the first time.

“What?” Perry said, when he noticed Keenan watching them.

Sighing, Keenan shook his head. “Don’t grow up too fast, Perry,” he said. “I like being a father.”

Perry grinned. “You’ll always be our da,” he said. Then he shrugged. “Don’t worry, though. I’m enjoying being a kid far too much to grow up as fast as you did.”

Keenan chuckled. “Do that,” he said, nodding.
