dream big

Kids today have everything handed to them on a silver platter. They're so spoiled that it is quite difficult to get them to dream big. "I am dreaming big!" they say, "what do you know about being a kid anyway?"
Yeah yeah yeah, all dreams seem big when you're 6 years old and 3 feet tall. You dream of getting your own glass of water. You dream of retrieving your Eggo® from the toaster all by yourself. You dream of driving a big luxurious car.
But you grow a little bit and realize those dreams weren't such a big deal. You're 5 feet tall and you ask dad for a drink of water, you call for your brother to bring you your Eggo®.
You thought there'd be room for a hot tub in your dream car. Maybe a dance floor. Everything seems smaller when you grow up.
