8 Things My Kids Get Away With That I Wish I Could Too

8 Things Only Kids Can Get Away WithI remember when I was about 8-years,-old wishing that I was 10-years old.

When I was 10-years old, I couldn’t wait until I was 13.

Then I wanted to be 16.

Then I wanted to be 18 and and “adult” and before I knew it …. I was.

It’s weird how things go by so quickly and if you don’t slow down time and soak it in, it can go by even faster.

Now that I am 30-years-old, I find myself wishing that I was just a bit younger. I have kids of my own so it’s easier to live through them for some things, but you know. There are just a few things that it seems only kids can get away with… and I wish I could too.

    Spend the Day Coloring Yourself
    It's not really that I want to color all over myself, but if you were to see an adult walking around with marker all over their arms, you'd get weird looks. A kid wouldn't get a second glance.

    I admit, there are more than a few days a week I really don't want to wash, blowdry, flat iron and style my hair. Kids don't have to worry about all that.

    Over or Under Dress
    Sometimes I just want to wear what I want to wear, appropriate or not. Doesn't work for adults, but kids can pull it off.

    I could do it, but would be laughed at to no end from my husband. My daughter on the other hand gets away with it every night.

    I can take my kids to the grocery store in their pj's and people smile... if I do it people avoid and stare.
