The other day someone called me "Childish". Is that even an insult? Personally, I was flattered.
Childish - like a child.
My 3 favorite people in the world are my children. So, wouldn't it be a compliment to be like them?
My children are amazing and fun to be around. Childish doesn't sound so bad.
And I'll admit, I may be a little immature at times. I'm not an adult prude with a stick up my butt. I still try not to giggle when someone talks about the "Penal System" (We really need a better name for that) or mentions a man with Angina (Men don't have anginas, Hehe).
I still enjoy the kids rides:
Well, maybe not this particular ride (it makes me wonder things about the designer).
But I Still enjoy the funny pictures and I like to make up captions for them:
And I even enjoy playing the same games that I did when I was a child (Maybe a little different)
So, I almost had this woman convinced that I am not childish (or at least that it is not a bad thing) and I simply enjoy having fun with my kids. I explained to her that it is acceptable for me to crawl through the tubes on McDonalds playplace with my kids, it's part of being a parent. Just as she is beginning to agree with me, she tells me that her husband can't do that because it bothers his angina.
Yep, my laughter was not very convincing.
