Spoil Yourself

by Holly Peck | 0 Comments

Ever notice how babies and small children are treated so well by everyone? They certainly have the best in life! As a mother with two children under the age of five, I often wonder why the perks of young childhood don't apply to grown-ups. Moms and Dads, ask yourself "Why not?"

-Why not use baby wipes instead of toilet paper? They're soft, scented, moist and just do the job better.

-Why not wear the most color-coordinated outfit to "go out" so that others are compelled to comment on how cute you are?

-Why not eat small, healthy snacks throughout the day for extra energy?

-Why not have that special someone rub baby lotion all over your body after a bath, because it feels so smooth and smells so baby fresh?

-Why not take a nap in the middle of the afternoon so you'll be rested for the rest of the day?

-Why not spend time outside in the sunshine each day to get some fresh air?

-Why not play a little every day for the sole purpose of having fun?

-Why not sing and dance whenever you feel like it without worrying what others would think?

-Why not share your things and yourself when you feel like it, and don't when you don't?

-Why not use such cute, smiling facial expressions that others want to kiss you all over your face? (some might add, "nibble on your chubby little thighs," too!)

-Why not look so pitiful when you're sad so that others want to hold you and are compelled to give you whatever you want?

-Why not drink warm milk, read a good book, and be lulled to sleep at night by soft music?

-Why not say to your boss, "It's not fair!"; to your friends, "I don't like you anymore!"; and to your spouse, "I don't want to play with you!" without any real consequences?

Why not?
