    up for anything

    Spend an hour around any child and you know they have an unyielding tenacity. They pursue their desires in the moment theyarise and do not quit until they have what they set out to get. They want it and they want it now. Later means never. While this tenacity, mixed with immediacy, can drive a parent mad and lead to disciplining a child, it has a positive side. It is the reason children are masters atspontaneity. They are up for anything, anytime ─ especially before the requirements of school give them reasons to say no. As children get older, they become more aware of others’ opinions and the expected etiquette of given situations. Before then, however, there are no self- or socially imposed limits on when and where fun, beauty, and breakthroughs can happen.

    What does this "up for anything" mean? "ready to go for something"?
