Reverb #3

I am starting to think I need better titles..... :) I'll work on that for tomorrow.

Today's prompt is: How did you become more of a grown-up this year? Or did you pull a Peter Pan and stubbornly remain childlike? Bethany

Honestly- I dont think I have even not been grown up. I have always been a responsible person. I was just born that way. I am a rule follower- almost to a fault. Sometimes I really feel like I need to let go and be more child like. But the thought of letting go of some adult responsibilities (like spending money freely, speeding, not going to the doctor for a check up or to the dentist for a routine exam, etc) is just CRAZY talk. I think if I became any more "grown up" I would be the lamest person on earth. Someone who is totally NO FUN AT ALL! And I don't consider my self un-fun or lame. I just follow the rules. I do child-like things all the time. I have three young boys. So that is totally easy to do. We play at the park, jump on trampolines, ride go-carts, go to The Muppet Movie and then act like animal afterwards. I love imagining and being creative with them! So in answer to this question: I think I have a good balance of being a grown up and being child like. At least I hope I do!


  1. I love that, you animal! ; ) Nicely put!

  2. I think we need to do something totally silly and spontaneous next time we are in Omaha. Let's plan on it! oops, see I suck at this. :)

  3. Yes - the whole kid thing makes it so much easier to pretend to be not-grown-up every once in awhile. I think that's why us always-grown-up people like being around kids so much :-).
