I Don't Want to Grow Up!

Reasons Why Being a Kid is Great...

1. Life is carefree. No need to worry about paying bills or buying groceries.

2. No fear. Kids seem be able to do anything. I know I get wimpier and wimpier the older I get about scary things like going fast, rides at amusement parks, etc.

3. Summer break. With any luck, I'll have this once again, but it will be different. There will still be plenty to do during my breaks - make plans for the next year, keep the house clean, possibly work a second job.

4. So much fun to do outside - parks, biking, swimming, swinging, playing with friends, etc.

5. So much fun to do inside - board games, video games, reading, creating (e.g. Legos), etc.

6. So much time to truly enjoy doing those fun things.

7. Spoiling. By parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles.

8. No aches and pains. From being a woman. From growing older.

9. Laughter. Life just seems funnier as a kid. 

10. Getting away with saying whatever pops into your mind. Kids say the darnedest things, right? And everyone thinks it's SO cute. Until, well, they grow up.

  1. I agree with all of the above, but I'd also say that you can still do all of these things as a "grown up." I'm in the mind set that I don't ever want to REALLY be a grown up. I can still be responsible and not technically be a grown up, right?

    1. Yes! I agree. You can totally still be a kid. I won't tell. ;-)

  2. #10 is so true. My kid gets away with stuff I would never :) And Legos my favorite best thing after chocolate! Great list Clarinda.

  3. I so wish I still had a summer break!

  4. So true about the aches and the pains! I have the nastiest dysmennorhea now. Oh, to be young and carefree!

    1. Sorry to hear that! I hope you're doing better now. ((hugs))

  5. I agree with the whole list! Can I be a kid again?

  6. Great list, oh to be a kid again. Especially with out those nasty aches and pains, even if some of them are from going fast.
