NO- not what you think.  I found this and thought it was really cute, so I had to share…

I Resign
Unknown author

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8-year-old again.
I want to go to McDonald’s and think that it’s a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make ripples with rocks.
I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer day.
I want to return to a time when life was simple.
When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn’t bother you, because you didn’t know what you didn’t know and you didn’t care.

All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.
I don’t want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip,illness, and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So…here’s my checkbook and my car keys, my credit cards and all my responsibility.

I am officially resigning from adulthood. And if you want to discuss this further, you’ll have to catch me first, ’cause,

“Tag! You’re it.”

    This weekend I had the pleasure of playing with my 4 year old niece. For hours on end we sat on the floor and played her penguin game. Then we made a tent of blankets and chairs and flew in our airplane to amazing places. For a few hours I was a kid again and it was wonderful!

    Then, I spent the evening dancing around with my 11 year old son while we played our Wii Just Dance 2 (super fun game, if you are interested!). He did not care how silly he looked and I followed his lead. We spent a lot of time laughing. For a few hours, I was 11 again.

    This was the most therapeutic weekend I have had in a long time. I highly recommend that if you cannot completely resign as an adult, you at least take a vacation into the world of a child.

    Amen. Playing with my son and seeing the world through his 3 year old eyes is the best therapy EVER. :) I’d like to resign, but for now I’d be happy with a playdate at the mall.
