I got that from my friend's Facebook Status. It's true isn't it? What happened to our little kid worlds? Why did we have to, nor even want to, give them up...for this? For an occasional good moment? For an occasional day or two that we feel infinite? And the rest of the days full of drama, full of wrongs needed to be righted, full of heartbreaks. Why did we trade it in? Adults did a good job of acting apparently, or maybe kids are just optimists and look at only the good things in life. Must be ADD not to notice the bad stuff. Either way we were blindsided. Now they "freedoms" we thought we'd have are followed up by worse consequences.
Example: I get to drive! And pay for insurance, gas, and any check ups. I get to chauffeur friends around. You could be killed at any second. Yea I wanted to grow up for this.
Example: I can buy whatever I want! And then get a job to pay for it, if I can get a job nowadays, or I might just live on the streets because I spent all my money.
Example: I can eat ice cream every day for breakfast! And have health problems for the rest of my life..
I'm not saying we should tell little kids this, but I am saying that I'm jealous... oh dear am I jealous....
