Confession time: I stole the title from a commercial on tv! But it’s worth considering: does growing up mean giving up the things you love? Sometimes, yes. We put aside childish things, or, more likely, we exchange them for things that replace them. Are the new things better? Worse?
And sometimes, no. I’m thinking right now of the things I did as a child. Saturday morning cartoons, curled up in front of the tv with a bowl of cereal in my pajamas. The best ones were The Pink Panther, especially when my dad was there. And what do I do on Saturday mornings now? Laundry. Mowing the yard. Washing the car. Need I go on?
So tomorrow I will sit down with my kids in front of the tv and relive with them the best of times. We will watch something silly, preposterous, and completely aimless. Do yourself a favor: give yourself a pass in the morning for just an hour and do something fun. Have a great weekend!
