It seems that my brain is still on vacation, and for the life of me, I couldn’t come up with a top 10 list this week.  So I’m letting my 6-year-old son Big C do today’s post.  But don’t tell him you read it because when I told him he was going to be on my blog, he exclaimed, “No!!  I don’t want to be famous!”

Here are Big C’s…

Top 10 Reasons Why I Wish I Was a Grown-Up
10)  I could eat whatever I want.
9)  I could sit in Dad’s chair.
8)  I could stay home by myself when no one else is in the house.
7)  I could buy whatever I want.
6)  I’d get to stay up late.
5)  I’d make all the rules.
4)  I would climb tall buildings.  (Sidenote: When I told him that was a silly one because grown-ups don’t climb buildings, he replied, “I will.  Don’t cross that one out Mom.”)
3)  I want to be the boss.
2)  I will join the military and fight for freedom.
1)  I want to teach kindergarten at my school.  And I’ll tell everybody on the first day that you only get 2 chances to be bad and that’s it.  And if you’re bad for the 3rd time, you go to the principal’s office.  Then when I am retired, I’m going to have a job that includes hunting.  And when I retire from hunting, I will go back to school to study science because I love science.  And when I retire from that, I’m going to be a chef.  And I’m only going to cook the same thing every day because that’s what my customers want. 
If you have kids, why do they wish they were grown-ups?  If you don’t, why did you wish you could be a grown-up when you were a kid?

  1. that's really cute. usually my son says so he can eat all the junk food he wants. something tells me that my be a fave for all the kids.

  2. I think kids like the idea of doing whatever they want. If only they knew that even grown ups don't get to do what they want and life becomes much more complicated as an adult. Through kids eyes, everything is simple…black or white, there is no gray.

  3. That is so cute!!!! When I was a kid…I couldn't wait to be an adult so that I could eat raw cake batter. Now that I AM an adult….raw eggs scares me!
