leah's top eight reasons

why it's no fun being a grownup:

8. You have to drive.
7. You never have time to get a haircut.
6. You have to buy your own stuff.
5. You have to take care of crazy kids.
4. You have to work all day.
3. You have to pay bills.
2. You have to make dinner.
1. You have to clean up throw-up when your kid gets sick.

Apparently, youth is not always wasted on the young.

This is great! smart girl!

Allison said...

Wow, she really does get it. It's nice to know that she sees the lamer aspects of adulthood through the liberties. It's not all wine and roses, little miss. ;-)

It's always sad to me when I realize what a boring grown up I have turned into. Doesn't seem that long since I was a kid too. :)

Julia said...

Very funny, how did she come up with the list?

I totally agree with numbers 3, 4, and 6!!

Hey MM ~ Yeah, she's a keeper! :)

Hi Allison ~ Spot on, I'd say!

Hi Lythrum ~ There's still a kid in there somewhere. :)

Hey Julia ~ I can't remember specifically what set it off (probably something I said about having to work), but we were driving from her school to Neal's, and she started ranting about how grownups don't have any fun, and each new item on her list of reasons was accompanied by some pretty hilarious commentary. I wish I had the whole thing recorded.

Hey Heather ~ I have to say that there are times when I agree with every one of them!
