6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!

Kids, I want you to listen up and I want you to listen good.

Don't grow up...IT'S A TRAP! 

When we were young (Cue an Adele-like vocal) all we wanted to do was grow up. We all wanted handsome husbands, high heeled shoes and pretty make-up. It was as if being an adult meant that you belonged to some kind of elite club, where you got to stay up late & make-out with cute boys, but oh boy - how wrong we were! Being an adult is filled with lots of boring, menial tasks like, paying bills, no drinking on work nights & countless Tinder failures with bae's who just aren't as charming IRL as on social, #foreveralone basically.

Today I thought I would talk you through all of the reasons why we should've just remained children for all eternity, and give us the chance to put up our feet from adulting duties! Enjoy!

The hardest decision that I ever had to make as a child was whether I wanted chicken nuggets or fish fingers in my happy meal. Stress did not exist and if it did, it was only fleeting. I went to school, ran around with friends at playtime & wrote in my diary about cute boy crushes. The stresses of adult life and the collapsing modern society was not present and that's the way I liked it!

When you're a child, everything seems holy rosy. Hearing about Brexit as a child, probably wouldn't have sparked as much concern in me then as it does in me now. Following the #BlackLivesMatter movement would've mattered to me, but it probably wouldn't have sparked as much anger and passion in me as it does now that I'm older. I do miss the rose tinted days, when you would believe the best in people - just because. When you would feel hopeful for the state of humanity because villains only existed in the movies and everybody who was being mean outside of the movies was just acting. Ahh boy- it sucks to be an adult doesn't it?!

Oh how I miss summer holidays! I remember  being in first school when summer holidays felt like they lasted for an entire year, rather than just 6  weeks. And then slowly as I grew older and progressed through educational years, the summers got shorter. They started feeling less like a year and more like 2 seconds. Like WHAT?! As a child, I think we are so naive to the essence of time and it is only now as we grow older do we realise it's importance and how precious it is. Anyway, nowadays us adult working folks don't even get summer holidays...FFS - BRING BACK MY CHILD SUMMER HOLIDAYS!

Indoor dens, digging for treasure in the garden or just simply having your mum surprise you with a McDonalds happy meal on a Friday after school - every, single day was an adventure. I remember being a kid, waking up every morning, eager to start the day, curious to know what adventure I would embark on next! Even if it was just digging for worms at the bottom of the garden or transforming my parent's bedroom into an underground fort, it was something new and it was something exciting.

In adult land if you do something wrong, make a wrong move or say the wrong thing, there is a whole host of consequences; prison sentences, divorces, getting fired, the list goes on. However as a child if you did something wrong, it was most likely to be perceived as a learning curve and would generally result in a mini lecture or spank on the bottom from your parents. I don't know about you guys, but I would take a spanking over a prison sentence any day, ha!

Boy likes girl, girl likes boy, friend tells boy, boy asks girl out, boy buys girl a McDonalds happy meal and they live happily ever after. There's no Tinder woes, no third wheel drama, just plain, simple, childhood love. Ahh, if only love were that simple for us wee adults!

I hope you all enjoyed remembering what it was like to be an innocent, care free child. Sadly you're an adult now, so GET BACK TO WORK! ;)
