Thursday Thirteen: 13 Ways To Be A Kid Again

Thirteen Things from momhuebert

This was originally a much longer list that I think has been making the rounds of the email forwards for a while. I've picked out my favorites for my list of

Thirteen Ways To Be a Kid Again.

1. Walk barefoot in wet grass.
2. Read the funnies. Throw the rest of the paper away.
3. Change into some play clothes.
4. Try to get someone to trade you a better sandwich.
5. Wear your favorite shirt with your favorite pants even if they don't match.
6. Take a running jump over a big puddle. (or maybe just go through the puddle!)
7. Get someone to buy you something you really don't need.
8. Hide your vegetables under your napkin.
9. Stay up past your bedtime.
10. Eat dessert first.
11. Fuss a little, then take a nap.
12. Make cool screeching noises every time you turn a corner.
13. Giggle a lot for no reason.

And one more for good measure:

14. Give yourself a gold star for everything you do today.

I think I'm going to implement that newspaper idea, since I already hide my vegetables.

The thing that's great about having seven children is that I can get away with still acting like a kid when I play with them This is a great list!

Great TT! My sister and I were talking yesterday about nap time. My niece didn't want to take her name. I volunteered to take one for her. Ahh, that's the one thing I miss most about being a kid... naps!

Thanks for visiting my first TT!

Number 12 made me smile out loud ;>)
My brother was always making cool screeching sounds when he rounded corners.
Along with gear changing noises on the long stretch of hallway.
