Ever since my niece “Betty” was probably 5, I’d give her piggy back rides. Oh she loved them. She weighed nothing so I’d walk all over with her, would even do squats.
There’s very few things as cool as making little kids laugh.
Even as I was leaving her house, and she’d be crying that I was going, a piggy back ride was a quick bribe to make her stop.
Flash forward to yesterday. Betty is now 15. I took a pic with her, her brother and my other two nieces. “Betty” immediately jumped on my back. Thankfully I’m in good shape. She’s 5′ 6″ and very thin, so that didn’t hurt either.
Some things don’t change… and I’m very happy about that : )
