Ten Reasons being a Kid ROCKS

Finally a reason to look forward to Mondays!I love linking up with Stasha and her Monday Listicles.

Top Ten Reasons Being a Kid Rocks:

1. It's like being a rock star-people buy your clothes, do you hair, cook your meals, schedule your appointments and chauffer you around.

2. Chunky thighs and crazy hair garner lots of attention and are considered an asset.

3. Everywhere you go strangers tell you how adorable/handsome/clever/well-mannered you are & then they offer you stickers and candy.

4. You can wear pajama shorts, a leather cowboy vest (shirtless of course), fireman rain boots and gallop on a stick horse without it being weird. In fact, you will probably be offered candy and stickers.

5. You can puke all over yourself, the carpet, your brother's bed and not only do you not have to clean it up but you also get to skip school the next day.

6. You get invited to lots of birthday parties.

7. If you get a new pair of shoes you will go FAST..VERY FAST..GUARANTEED!

8. You can get up in front of a crowd forget all the words, pick your nose and twirl around in your skirt and the crowd goes nuts!

9. You can say things like "All I'm taking is two stuffed animals and $10" as you pull your Cars suitcase to be loaded for a 17 hour, 2200 mile road trip.
10. You can pee your pants on the trampoline and no one bats at eye.

Ha! This is so adorable. I'm going to start wearing a Cinderella gown now. And maybe a Native American vest.

I am turning back the clock. I am now officially a kid. Peeing on the trampoline clinched it.

Emily said...

Haha! Yes! This is why I'm so jealous of my children!

My husband would laugh about #7. I say that every time I buy a new pair of sneakers (remember, I am a sneaker junkie). Sometimes I even tell him to look at how fast I am standing still. LOVE FAST SNEAKERS!!

Robbie K said...

Always glad to make people laugh! I think I will be quoting StinkBug's packing mantra for years to come!

Robbie K said...

Wouldn't it be great if adults got rewarded with stickers/candy/coffee/chocolate? It would be a happier world I am sure!

Robbie K said...

If we only knew how good we had it :)

Robbie K said...

You could definitely pull off the Cinderella gown and vest. You will be required to send me pictures of course!

Robbie K said...

You can pee in bounce houses AND the pool too!

Robbie K said...

Robbie K said...

Love this list! So true! 10yos have it MADE. :-)

I want to be a kid again, on second thought I don't, I just want some of those things on your list. But the big thing I miss? Being carried to bed when I fall asleep on the sofa.
