Things We Hated As Children But Totally Rock As Adults
I remember being a kid and the things I hated somehow became attractive as an adult. You are left wondering why did I fight this? I believe much of the time it is because we are told to like it and that sucks! As adults ,we are more open to trying new things as well. Here are six things we typically dislike when we are young and embrace when we start adulting!
6 Things Kids Don’t Like
Remember how you dreaded having to go to school every day, not to mention paying attention to stuff you really didn’t care about. Adults thrive on learning more and more. There are so many free courses and with Online Learning the possibilities are endless
Kids fight going to sleep in general let alone a nap. Naps are wasted on children. I love Naps! I take one every day and nothing is so stress-relieving and rejuvenating as a good nap. As adults, we don’t get enough sleep so even a short nap improves your health and productivity. Oh and nobody can annoy you when you’re under the covers.
Remember how you used to wipe your mouth after being forced to kiss a relative? Yuk! The very thought of kissing the opposite sex would make you throw up in your mouth a little? Then someone older would say, “You’ll change your mind soon enough”. No way! But of course we do, kissing is amazing and makes us feel connected and loved. We also didn’t like our behind swatted but as adults that takes on a whole new dimension. (jus saying)
What was worse than getting a bath? I remember when my son was little I actually had to hold his head to keep him in the tub. Today there is nothing better than a long hot shower or a good soak in the tub. I myself, have been known to stay in a bath for hours. Nothing better than washing the day off.
Eat Your Vegetables
As children, we basically don’t want to eat anything that isn’t visually appealing or sweet. Put a vegetable on a plate even worse a green vegetable and it’s not happening. There are so many veggies I love today that I fought hard against way back in the day. Avocados are one of those things, basically, because they were green.
Time- out was probably the greatest punishment ever. Kids hate to sit still. As an adult ,we are begging to sit still. I wish I could get a time out! Life is so busy sometimes we need to just sit and be quiet.
Funny how much changes when we grow up and maybe that’s because we get to choose for ourselves. Hope you enjoyed this fun list. What is on your list?
