     Monday again with Stasha and Listicles. A little pressed for time, so here it is,

10 reasons why being a kid rocks

1 You can sleep any where, any time.


2 You can show up wearing just a hat and no one bats an eye.

3 Impeccable fashion sense.


4 You have a way with animals, real



or not

5. You understand the importance of stretching first.


6. The future is so bright you've gotta wear shades.


7 You can operate heavy machinery.



8 You can cut your own hair.

9 Saying you caught a fish THIS big is way more impressive.


10 World domination is only a smile away.


And the bonus # 11 reason why being a kid rocks is, no matter how old you get, you're always some one's little ...


     Drop by Stasha's and see why everyone else thinks being a kid rocks.

  1. Love these Paul! Must say I teared up a bit with the bonus one. So true! And wearing just a hat, imagine going to the mall at our age :)

  3. Hahaha! Cutting hairs! So true! My nieces do it all the time. Thank God my 2 girls haven't experimented on scissors and hair combination, yet.

    1. Every kid I know at some point takes the scissors in hand. I have no idea why

  4. Yes, you can cut your own hair but really, should you?

    1. Thanks Jacqui. I'm pretty sure I didn't take a single one of them.

  6. The bonus one is very true! Great list. #4 reminded me of my baby - he really loves his animals, so much more than his sisters ever have.

    1. That's the bonus. Having grown up in farm country, animals always figure prominently.

  7. What a great list, and I must say, #11 got me! In my big extended family, this is so true!

    1. The look on my little cousins faces is priceless every time my mom introduces me as her little boy. LOL The fact I'm 6 inches taller and half again her size just mystifies them.

    1. I don't actually have those pics, I'm not sure who does. Haven't raided your mom's picture albums.. yet.

      Bonus points if you can put a name to all the faces, we're family after all.

      And Left Brain is smiling ROFL

    1. Hello, 21st century, you need sunscreen, maybe a touch of lip gloss. In my case a lot of sunscreen LOL

    1. It was so much fun looking through all the pictures I have. Could have gone on and on and on LOL

  15. Love the ideas, the pics, and the sentiment that runs throughout. Sweet with a capital S!

  16. This is great!!! And I'm laughing at the "cut your own hair" one! Great pictures to accompany your list :)

    1. Cutting your own hair seems like some sort of rite of passage. I remember doing my own twice, Mom yelled both times. Pretty sure both were right before school pics. My aunt cut her bangs to stubble once. If only I had the pictures LOL

  17. What a wonderful list! Especially #11 :) The pictures were so fun to look at :)

  18. 11 is kind of great isn't it. You're always a kid to your mom and dad. Ome thing our family is blessed with, an abundance of children and pictures of us all.

  19. Hee hee! I love it. Those pictures are priceless, as is #11.

    1. It made it a lot easier having over a hundred years of family pictures to draw from.

  20. Oh man. You killed me with #11.

    1. But it's so true. If you ever want to be a kid again, visit your parents. Sometimes good, some times not so good LOL

  21. Great, great pictures! I especially the one about being able to sleep anywhere. Little babies have always impressed me with that. :)

    1. One of the benefits of being the un official family historian. I guess we're just not entertaining enough, babies just nod off any where.

  22. Love the self applied hair cut ;-) These were all good ones. Kids never really get how good they have it with the sleeping thing...

    1. I'm still trying to figure out where the sleeping thing went so wrong. I'm lucky if I get 5 or 6 hours now.
