A Public Service Announcement


Why is it when we are young we can’t wait to be older and when we are older we wish we were younger?

Children see growing older as a way to “Do whatever they want” “Whenever they want” “However they want”

Little do they know the “trap”

“Do whatever you want” becomes “Do whatever your boss or spouse (or both) wants”

“Whenever you want” becomes “Whenever you aren’t working or doing other things you don’t want to do but have to do”


“However you want” becomes “The way the law, the government, your some other authority you didn’t realize existed as a kid wants”

So kids………….


It’s a trap!!!!!!!!! Run while you can!  


Mom and Dad’s rules really aren’t that bad. They feed you, they provide a roof. They pay the bills for you. Trust me, there are no 2-3 month summer vacations when you grow up. Just lots of responsibility.




This is a public service announcement for the prevention of wishing to grow up too fast. 


Now get out there and play in the dirt! 


~~~till we laugh again~~~

    It’s just like how when we’re young we hate having to take naps, but when we’re older and would love to be able to take naps, we can’t because there’s no time. 🙂
