Why it rocks to be us

March 19, 2012

After reading the Monday listicles posts for a while now I finally decided to join up with Stasha at The Good Life for her weekly link up. I pulled the boy away from talking to his friends on Skype and little one from watching The Tale of Despereaux to “interview” them about…

10 reasons why being a kid rocks.

Here are their answers in no particular order. A (B) stands for the boy answering, he’s 11 and a (L.O.) stands for little one answering, she’s 3.

1. Not having to worry about taxes. (B) That really was his first answer.

2. Because I like going to playground and pool. (L.O.)

3. Being chauffeured around by mom and dad. (B)

4. Play with my toys every night. (L.O.) … and here I thought, she actually sleeps.

5. Get an allowance. (B)… he also gets to do chores for that allowance.

6. Because I get to play video games. (B)

7. Because I get to tell funny jokes. (B) … They are funny not silly!!!!

8. Because I get to have tea parties. (L.O.)

9. Because you can watch endless amounts of TV. (guess who?)

10. Because I get to go to work with daddy and enjoy it. ( This last one is for my absentee middle daughter who chose to go to work with her daddy on her first day of Spring Break. )

    You know sometimes, being a kid is the best part of the life we have because we don’t experience such a lot of problems and all we do is just enjoy life everyday…

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 11:06 pm

      I agree. As kids we still have that innocence and really just live life one day at a time.

  • Kristen March 19, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    I love those responses! They are awesome! Can you tell it is tax season? 🙂

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 11:04 pm

      For sure. Even the kids get roped into the hullaballoo. 🙂

  • Stasha March 19, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Glad to hear that your son doesn’t have to worry about money eventhough he earns quiet a bit doing chores 😉
    What a fun list your kids helped you make! It’s great being a kid in your house!

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 11:03 pm

      Yeah, I think they are pretty lucky and they realize it. 🙂

  • ava March 20, 2012 at 2:29 am

    So great about the endless tv watching, this coming from a self-confessed Korean drama addict. 🙂 It rocks to be a kid!

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 11:01 pm

  • TBM March 20, 2012 at 5:42 am

    I agree with number one…I’ve been on the phone for 30 minutes trying to track down one final piece for my taxes.

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 11:00 pm

      That sounds like loads of fun…Not. Hope you got what you needed.

  • Rebecca March 20, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Cute answers. I have a feeling they are typical of most kids, LOL. I especially liked #1. Yes, to be a kid again, siggghhhhhh.

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 10:59 pm

      Wouldn’t it be nice to go back to that innocence for just one day? 🙂

  • Missy | The Literal Mom March 20, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Love these answers! The taxes answer is the BEST! So funny!

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 10:58 pm

      He He. I guess, even the kids are affected by tax season. Thanks for stopping by.

  • Recovering Supermom March 20, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    Oh, my gosh! I love #1! That is so funny! And how fun that your other daughter went to work with your husband. I think that’s a great experience for a kid to have.

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 10:56 pm

      Yes, I was pretty surprised by his answer and middle daughter adores going to work with her dad. She does it every chance she gets!!! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

    Great list, your kids have it made. I just realized I’m not getting updates for you anymore, sorry for not visting more often I kinda thought you were taking a break. Like the new look too.

    • Susi March 26, 2012 at 7:27 am

      No break, Paul. I switched back to my feedburner subscription widget. Maybe if you sign up with that you’ll get them again. And yes, my kids have it pretty good… and they know it!!! 🙂
