I think that of late, I’m starting to appreciate this more and more.

Being a kid is a hell of a lot more fun than being an adult.

Not saying that being an adult doesn’t have it’s perks (Driving, voting, sex, drinking, buying cool shit), but being a kid has a level of freedom that can only come from one thing. A lack of responsibility.

Yup that’s it. The key difference between being a kid and an adult. Lack of responsibility.

Mrs. Technocrat and I have been talking a lot of late about this sort of thing. It really hit home last night that we are getting “older”. With that comes increased responsibility.

Some of our friends are starting to transition into this. They have kids going to college.

/scared_face = on

Yes, friends of ours (that are our age) have kids going to college.

What. The. Holy. HELL!!??!!

How did that happen?

Several of them (the parents, not the kids) have remarked that they wish for a simpler time.

Now don’t get me wrong. We (the parents) wouldn’t trade our lives. It’s just that we don’t consider ourselves “old”.

Hell…many of us have trouble considering ourselves “adults”, much less “responsible adults”.

/shudder

My two kids are a ways a way from college, but it’s not THAT far away.

Driving is the next big thing and that frightens me.

Teaching them how to drive, and drive safely, in today’s world.

Heaven help me.

So, I return to the above image.

Peter Pan had it right.

I particularly like that whole “flying” thing.

Plus, Tinker Bell was HOT.
