I hate you, let’s be best friends forever

Listening to kids play, it is amazing how quickly they move from being friendly with one another, to a complete dislike, to being best friends again. “I hate you! I never want to see you again!” “Can we play now? I’ll be your best friend forever.”
We, adults, for the most part, have forgotten this quality; the ability to instantly forgive and forget, move on. Or, maybe kids have a shorter memory? Not likely – try making a promise to your child to have some ice-cream later, and see if they forget…

So what is it about kids that allows them to transition so quickly? After all, we all have been children once (or at least most of us have.) I trust that it is because kids live much more in the present. They do not burden themselves with deep concerns about the future, nor carry too much, if any, luggage from the past; even if this past was just five minutes ago.
Sometimes I wish I could have preserved certain child qualities in me while growing up.
