Why grow up? I mean, really. Who wants to grow up?I will borrow a quote from the creator of Peter Pan, Mr. Barrie. J.M. Barrie wants to climb trees as an adult.
If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree, I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up! Not me!”
― J.M. Barrie
It snowed 18 inches in Pennsylvania today. The back of our yard is a hill. A nice steep hill.
If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to sled down a hill, I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up! Not me!
―P. F. Hodges ( That’s me. Pamela Hodges.)
There are 10 things you need to never grow up.
2. A sled
3. One Boot
4. One Boot
5. Snow pants
6. A jacket
8. A scarf
9. A hat
10 A hill
Apparently one of the skills that grown ups need is the ability to count. In the video I say there are ten things you need. I think I counted my boots as two things.
Maybe the list should be called 10 things you need to go sledding. Because really there is only one thing you need to never grow up.
You need to think young.
Our life is what our thoughts make it.
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.
―Cindy Gerard, To the Limit
Do you want to grow up? Assuming that growing up means you can’t climb trees or go sledding. Please tell me in the comments. I would love to talk to you. And maybe you can help me with my counting.
