Isn't It Great?

Friday, October 27, 2006

Isn't it great how, when you're a kid:

  • all you need to be a super-hero is to tie on a cape made out of a receiving blanket?
  • all you need for a deep sea adventure is a ball of playdough?
  • all you need to play bumper cars is a couple of empty cardboard boxes?
  • all you need to fly is a swing?
  • all you need to be a pirate is a bandana around your head and a stick in your hand?
  • all you need to make the ow-ees all better is a kiss and a hug from Mommy?
  • all you need to know that all is right in the world is to see Mommy and Daddy kiss and hug each other?
Yeah. Isn't it great?

  1. Most awesome post ever...LOVE THIS LIST!

  2. Hey, Beth, thanks! Btw, I just nominated you for a Hoagie over at Heather Anne's blog (click on Hoagie link in left side-bar). I nominated you as "Blogger who should be president," because I am constantly amazed by everything you get accomplished--I figured with the organizational skills you must have, you would be a rockin' prez.

  3. somehow my imagination was much more vivid when i was a kid!!

    hey there!! im baaaaack

  4. Yep! Yep! Yep! Hello there Talena! I haven't forgotten you (as if I could). It has been busy Down Under. Exams start next week and I still have 2 assignments to hand in!

    Aaaaaargh. If only dreams (such as assignments doing themselves) came true as they did when I was a kid. ;-)

  5. I just got caught up on your recent blogs. Stories about Jude and Noah always make me laugh; I guess it's b/c they're pretty funny. I helped chaperone the youths West Ed. Mall trip over the weekend. We went to the water park, and it seems so much smaller than I remember. So I guess when you're a kid, everything seems so big! Then you grow up and realize it's actual size. It was still fun though.

  6. Wow, everyone came and visited on the same day!

    Mom - :-)

    Grafx - That was a long hiatus! Didst thou enjoy thyself?

    I'm glad I have kids--they remind me how to play.

    Rohini - Thanks! Gotta love when the best ones are the shortest ones, eh? :-)

    Aakanksha - And I have not forgotten you, either, sweet Er. Ace. The craziness of life has kept me from taking time to comment on most blogs--but I have popped over there once or twice to at least "skim and keep up" on things. So, I understand!

    I do wish you the best on your exams. May you remember all you need to remember, and only forget the things that don't matter!

    Ang - I've met a few of my grade-school teachers as adults, and was amazed that I could now look over their heads--they were so tall back then! "Everything is actual size"--I love the wording! Love ya!

  7. Isn't it great how, when you're an adult...

    the perfect night is a bath and a bed with clean sheets?

    the perfect morning is sleeping till you just wake up rather than being woken by a child or an alarm?

    the perfect treat for yourself is a new pair of panties so you can throw out ONE pair of the shot-elastic, holey, old droopy ones?

    all it takes is a new pair of warm boots to make your month?
