Just Like Peter Pan...

If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic bean buyer. If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax golden tales to spin, Come in! Come in!"

~Shel Silvertein

Uh huh...I am just a big kid at heart. I believe in fairies, Santa Claus, the magic of four leaf clovers, shooting stars and looking for pots of gold at the end of a rainbow.

I talk to puppets, believe that Sesame Street really exists, Mickey Mouse lives in a cottage smack dab in the middle of Disney World and that tea parties with teddy bears are oh so chic.

I believe that laying in the grass, watching clouds drift by, is a perfectly valid
 way to send an afternoon. I believe that dogs and cats talk to one another when we are not around, that thunder is the sound of God bowling
and I believe in the basic inate goodness of all people.

I won't grow up,

I don't want to wear a tie.

And a serious expression

In the middle of July.

And if it means I must prepare

To shoulder burdens with a worried air,

I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up

Not me,

Not I,

Not me!

So there!

Mac once commented to our boys (on watching me decorate a dolls house for myself) "your mother will never grow up!" My elder son replied, "yeah, isn't it great?"
I still haven't grown up and have no plans to...loved this post! And Shel, yep loved him too!

What a delightful post. The older I get the more I agree with every single word! Your images would inspire the child within everyone.

I think those of us with your same philosophy have lots more fun. I never seem to be at a loss for playmates. Have a fun weekend, Sue.

Never, never, never grow up, Sue! We love you just the way you are. I loved your whimsical post and we are Shel Silverstein fans at our house, too.

Bonnie said...

Loved the post. Why grow up if we don't have too. I know I never will and I hope you never do. You are such a treat!

Marionettes and Peter Pan songs! Works for me!
