10 Things Only A Kid Could Get Away With

Being an adult is sometimes kinda crappy — the responsibility we have, the expectations and all that come with being a productive and reasonable person in the world. It’s great that there are these expectations — makes the world run, but sometimes when I am having a particularly difficult day, I think back to my carefree childhood. Seems so nice — no real worries and sheltered from the real issues going on.

As we grow, the expectations of our behavior grows with us, but there is a lot more leeway for kids than there is for adults. There are certainly some things that kids can get away with far easier than if they were grown like me and that’s pretty awesome, though I admit some of them (I won’t say which ones) I wish I could still do.

    Speaking Their Mind
    If a kid thinks your sweater is ugly or wants to go home like NOW, it's perfectly acceptable for them to say it. Well, at least no one would pay too much attention about it.

    Kids love to be naked, whether they decide to walk around with no shirt, pants or shoes adults couldn't get away with that.

    Messy Eating
    We see kids all the time walking with spaghetti stains or chocolate still on their face. It's expect and would not go over well if an adult did the same.

    Falling Asleep Anywhere
    We want our kids to fall asleep, even if it means they fall where ever they are. If only I could do that .... now.

    Adults will get "dude you're crazy" looks if we go out in costume. Kids get the "aw, look at her" looks.

    Kids are able to go in public with blue goo in their hair, tangles or the cutest princess up-do. Adults are usually expected to look their age.

    Walking Around With Security Blanket
    I admit, there have been times I wish I could hold a something with me that makes me feel better. Kids can bring their blanket or a favorite toy if they're nervous.

  • Using A Straw Without Looking Weird 9 of 10
    Using A Straw Without Looking Weird
    I know adults can use straws, but there is something so juvenile about it -- looks weird to me when I see a grown up using one. Kids get the luxury of the awesome straw with no second thoughts.

    Laughing at Potty Humor
    Kids are expected to have developing humor, making it totally okay for them to laugh at or make a joke about poop. Adults... not cool.
