I am hereby officially tendering my


resignation as an adult. I have decided I would


like to accept the responsibilities


of an 8 year-old again.

I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant


I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle

and make a footpath with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms

ATT000331.gifare better

than money because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big gum tree and

run a cold drink stand with my friends

on a hotATT000361.gifsummer's day.

I want to return to a time when life

was simple, when all you knew were colours,

multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes,ATT000391.gifbut

that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you

didn't care. All you knew was to be

happy ATT000421.gifbecause you were blissfully

unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.

I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe that anything is possible.

I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the

little things ATT000451.gifagain.

I want to live simple again.

I don't want my day to consist of

computer crashes, ATT000481.gif mountains of paperwork,

depressing news, how to survive more days in

the month than there is money in the bank,

doctor's bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones

I want to believe in the power of

smiles, ATT000541.gifhugs, a kind word, truth,

justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making snowmen in the snow.

So . . . here's my cheque book and my car keys,

my credit cards and my bank statements.

I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further,

you'll have to catch me first, cause........


....."Tag! You're it."


  1. I want to join you!  JAE

  2. I never accepted being an adult, but I never had that kind of childhood. Maybe I can start now?


  3. Yup, I want to regress too. I want to be Peter Pan, young and innocent forever. "

  4. I still have, from time to time, wondering where all the years went LOLOL..Ora

  5. me too.  being an adult sucks sometimes.  when i watch the children play and think about how their little minds arent cluttered with all the grown up things that mine is cluttered with i cant help but wish i could be where their at in life.

  6. LOL I agree being a child without worries or stresses would be wonderful. I too never had that kind of childhood, so to be like that would be a dream. However, it's nice to have that knowledge that comes with age too. There are so many things that as children we don't understand, but sometimes ignorance really is I guess we just have to take every stage of life as it comes, make the best of what we have, remember what it was like in the one before, and get for the next.

  7. I want to be eight too.  Thanks for the smile today.  TerryAnn.

  8. OH by the way I got a new pc so if I do not respond quickly dont think Im ignoring you okay.

  9. Wait!  You mean I'm NOT eight years old?
