Oh, to be a kid again. Life is seriously just pure bliss. You’re only punished a little bit when you’re bad and then you get to go out and play some more. None of this work business. Who wants to be an adult when you could be a kid! Here’s 17 of the best things about being a kid.
1. You don’t get in trouble for this
When you’re a curious baby, you can do all sorts of crazy things and never get in trouble. Give all the wedgies you want, you’ll never get this time back!
2. You get to dress up and run around
Everyone wants to play in dress-ups, use your imagination and wear whatever you want. When you’re an adult this practice is a little bit frowned upon.
3. You can wear a panda on your bum like it’s no big thing
An adult in this outfit would be mocked openly. But on an 8-mont-old, it’s adorable!
4. You can be brutally honest
Writing sucks and it’s no fun. Hopefully if you tell your parents that your fingers are going to fall off, they’ll take you seriously.
5. You can play with animals like nothing else
Some of your greatest playmates are your pets. Putting a crown on your kitty just became the best thing in your life.
6. You can have friendly mortal enemies
Rivalries exist on the playground but these kiddos are still your best friends. There’s no climbing the ladder or throwing people in front of the bus in this world.
7. Siblings make or break your life
What are siblings for if not to trap you inside a giant lego dome. That’s what they call fun, right?
8. You can pretend to your heart’s content
You might just be some kid on the swings, but in your own mind, you’re soaring over New York as a super hero, about to save the day!
9. You tell the truth
What’s your favorite part of church? The part when we go home. This is just the honest truth from a bored little kid.
10. You can make faces like this
Getting covered in food is such a joyful thing when you’re a kid. It’s not that great when you’re an adult, people just look at you funny.
11. You can dive face first into things
The world is yours to explore and no manner of exploration is wrong.
12. You’ve got your priorities straight
Boys still have cooties and you’d rather watch Netflix and birds. Never change, little girl, never change.
13. This is life’s greatest joy
This is fun even when you’re big…but then you remember how much work to rake all those leaves into that glorious pile and there’s no way you’d actually jump in them.
14. You can pout if you want to
Adults are expected to act like everything is great and put on a happy face, but you don’t do that unless you really are happy. And sometimes you’re just not.
15. You seize the day
You’ll never ever get to cover your living room in flour again, so you might as well enjoy it while it lasts.
16. You enjoy your food
You get to slurp, eat messily and noisily and no one can say anything against it.
17. Basically, being a kid is the best
Never grow up.
