This is a true story in which Daniel, an inquisitive three-year-old, asks his mother the question, "Did you like being a kid?" Daniel thinks it would be fun if his mother were his best friend rather than a grown-up. He tells her all the good times they could have if they were about the same age, such as playing in the fort, going swimming, and catching fireflies. Mom, however, points out everything they would miss if she were not his mother. In the end, Daniel decides they can have a good time together as mother and son.
