What Makes You a Kid at Heart?


I have a saying I’ve been sharing for years

Act Responsible, Yet Always Remain a Kid at Heartย 


The way I see it, life is full of grown up things we have to deal with…work, bills, life, medical, kids and various other “responsible” things.

It is very important that you offset the weight of all those heavy burdens by having some “kid at heart” moments in your day.

Some of you share these all the time. Maybe playing a joke on someone, messing with your kids, while at aย restaurantย coming out of the bathroom with a toilet seat cover necklace (yes, I had a friend do this one).

Whatever it is, it helps you remain young and have the ability to handle anything that is thrown your way. That moment of laughter keeps you feeling young. Yes, my body might be feeling 46 but my mind is still hanging out in its 30s. I will be a 80-year-old woman feeling in my 40s.

I remain a kid at heart by laughing at all the things I find funny at any given moment (and I find a lot funny for various reasons). I’m not afraid to be a kid with kids, yet I know that fine line of them knowing I’m the adult still.

So I’m curious…..

What do you do,

to remain a kid at heart?


Please share….Let’s all be a kid at heart on this post…..


~~~till we laugh again~~~

    Today at work it was slow so I did some paperwork and got to use the label maker and the shredder. These two things made me excited and made me feel like a big kid.

    My best friend and I always giggle and hop hop on the spot for nothing but the pleasure of spending time together ๐Ÿ™‚
    And anyway I still live in the world I created when I was 5 so… xD

    me and all my animals always talk in funny voices around the house. They don’t seem to get much out of it except being glad forthe attention, but I love it and it makes me laugh

    I watch cartoons and old Three Stooges shorts. I grew up in the days when parents weren’t horrified at the antics of Moe, Larry, and Curly and banishing them to late-night TV. With the cartoons, my favorites are Rocky and Bullwinkle, Road Runner, and The Pink Panther, and that’s by no means an exhaustive list. Also good: old TV Westerns, and Sherlock Holmes (with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce) and Charlie Chan movies.

    I help my kids hide my husband’s after dinner Diet Coke that he sets aside to help clean up. We like to see how many cans he’ll take out of the fridge before he realizes he already opened one, and someone has “mysteriously” taken it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well my Hubby always throws laundry that has been hung up to dry on the end of the bed, so, I put it on his side on his pillow. That night I found it (hangers and all) under my pillow. Well he went to be the next night and found a hanger in his pillow case…it goes on and on…but it does make us laugh! Last night the hanger was under the covers at the foot of his bed..

        EVERYTHING! He was a stage manager, actor, director, and playwright on Broadway and has the best stories. He lives and loves life like no one else I know. He finds pleasure in everything from a chocolate milkshake, to a visit to the zoo, to making marmalade with me, to . . . well, I could go on forever. His body is failing but his mind it not. I wrote a couple of posts about him and I dread the day my post is about his passing. I adore him.

    Making sure I go on the giant slide every time a fair is in town, water parks and just appreciating the absurdity in life. Oh and laughing out aloud at least once a day. Your blog has helped in that regard :).

    My needle is stuck on the late 60’s, early 70’s. Thank goodness some of those style have been revived. I just can’t bring myself to shop ‘misses’. I suppose people talk, but they’ll jabber anyway. Now if I can just get back into a size 5. Ok that’ll never happen! ๐Ÿ™
    Peace ๐Ÿ™‚

    What do I do? Why I read your blog of course :). And, I’m in the Not Normal and Proud of it Club!!! We stay young because we laugh at everything!! Let’s see, what else do I do. Oh ya, I like to drive through a town and start waving to random people walking along the sidewalk because I love to see how confused they look trying to figure out whether they know me or not. Tee Hee!

    Tomorrow I am taking the family to Disney World. I have scheduled the character breakfast. My husband and my dudes don’t really want to go to the character breakfast, but we are going and they are going to like it (maybe not as much as me!) ๐Ÿ™‚

    I still love to color! I doodle & color anytime I’m stuck on the phone – helps take away the boredom! Plus I’m a proud member of the Not-Normal Club!
