{how to be a kid again...}

do a cartwheel. sing in your hairbrush. blow bubbles in your milk. walk barefoot in wet grass. play a song you like really loud, over and over. dot all your "i's" with hearts or smiley faces. skip down the street holding hands. read the funnies and throw the rest of the paper away. dunk your cookies. play a game where you make up the rules as you go. take a bubble bath, maybe a toy or two. step carefully over sidewalk cracks. change into some play clothes. try to get someone to trade you a better sandwich. eat ice cream for breakfast. fry ants with a magnifying glass. kiss a frog, just in case. blow the wrapper off the straw. have someone read you a story. find some pretty stones and save them. wear your favorite shirt and your favorite pants even if they don't match. build a sand castle. take a running jump over a big puddle. get someone to buy you something you really don't need. play hide and seek. hide your vegetables under your napkin. stay up past your bed time. eat dessert first. fuss a little, then take a nap. wear red gym shoes. put way to much sugar on your cereal. make cool screeching noises every time you turn a corner. giggle a lot for no reason. give yourself a gold star for everything you do today.

did i for get anything?

Love the new title background so much I thought I'd mention it.

-wake up screaming at 6 for no reason and don't go back to bed even if you are still really tired.
-repeat everything you say really really loud over and over again
-whine about everything
-insist on bringing your bike on a walk and then insist on not riding it home
-give really great hugs and kisses and say simple yet sweet things that make your mom forget how much you bugged the hell out of her that day.

just a few you forgot. your welcome!
