Being a kid again!

Well, yesterday I took the afternoon off from work to be a kid.  My wife and I sat for over 6 hours waiting for the Ringling Bros., Barnum and Bailey Circus Train to come through our town.  It was after dark when it came through but we were able to follow it several miles and get a few good views of it as it passed through.

While sitting and waiting, my wife and I talked about how silly it was for us (two adults w/o kids) to want to see the circus train.  Well, I must tell you, it was the most exciting thing we’ve done in a while and really enjoyed the day with my wife.  So let me encourage you and your spouse to find your inner child and be a kid again.  Even if it is just for an afternoon.

These are not my ideas and came from another blog I follow.  However, here are a few things you can do to be a kid again.  Any of these bring back memories?  What’s your favorite?

  1. Do a cartwheel.
  2. Sing into your hairbrush.
  3. Walk barefoot in wet grass.
  4. Play a song you like really loud, over and over.
  5. Dot all your “i”’s with smiley faces.
