When I grow up....

Strawberry Ice Cream with StrawberriesImage via Wikipedia

I've been reminiscing about my childhood lately, probably because I don't actually want to be an adult anymore. It just got me thinking about all those things kids say to their parents about how things are going to be SO different when they are adults:

When I grow up I'm going to eat ice cream for breakfast.
I do eat ice cream for breakfast.

When I grow up and have kids I'm going to buy them cabbage patch dolls, let them stay up as late as they want, watch what ever they want on TV and eat ice cream for breakfast.
My kids will eat only organic health food and they will never watch television...or so I tell myself, we'll see how well that actually works out for me if I ever have kids.

When I grow up I am going to watch TV until midnight!
Um, yeah, way to think big kid. I regularly watch trashy television into the wee hours of the morning.

When I grow up I am never going to make my kids do the dishes.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...isn't that like half the reason to have kids? So you don't have to do the dishes anymore?

When I grow up I'm going to marry Bruce Springsteen.
Where did that come from? Gross.

When I grow up I'm going to have a million dollars and I'm going to live in a giant mansion, with a whole turret for my bedroom.
A million dollars bought a mansion 100 years ago, not so much anymore.

When I grow up I am going to be the Queen of England.
So impossible on so many levels and besides Prince William is not nearly as hot as an adult as he was when we were both 12.

Dear Sophia,
I was looking through older blog posts of various style icons (Amelie, Cher, Blair, Holly) and realized that there are no posts featuring the chic ladies from Sex and the City. I'm personally a Charlotte girl - I think she's the most classy of the four - but perhaps you could do a series, featuring all four gals? That would be much appreciated!

I still kinda want to snuggle up to Bruce Springsteen, but I realise he is old enough to be my daddy, so he can just adopt me.
All that other stuff, yeah I grew up to be just the big kid I imagined myself to be!
