    So Mature, Yet In a Childish Way...

    I've always been mature, even when I was a little kid. As a grew older, I never seemed to lose my child-like heart. Sure, I went through stages in school and at home, I played pranks on my sisters and pushed them around like any good brother would.... and guess what, I still do...

    Being "mature" does not mean giving up cartoons,

    toys or anything stereotyped for kids. There is a difference between child-at-heart and childish. An adult can take interest in kiddie things but that does not define his maturity. When a person knows what's best for others other than himself, now that's maturity. It only...

    Puer Aeternus

    Yes, the Child at heart. I always am. Even so the situation demands some level of maturity in dealing with most of the matters especially in the world of grown ups, I am indeed a child at heart. Since my last scribble about me missing a friend, I was consistent not to open up any...

    All Woman

    From head to toe, I am all woman. But inside me is a child at heart. I cherish that child-like-heart I carry within me, wouldn't give her up for any reason.

    I am 25 this year and all I ever wanted is to

    take care of children without any expenses on me. I understand every word 3-4 year olds are saying, I have so much energy that I tell really good stories and enthuse as much as those kids do for just about anything. I have a speech problem with people of my own age (it gets...

    Im a grown woman, I pay bills,

    I own two cars, I ride a motorcycle, I have a BSc and I will soon have a BEng too but this doesn't stop me playing with Lego, eating turkey dinosaurs and watching Disney. Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional

    I'm Still A Kid Inside

    My husband sees me as a child and he feels like he has two kids instead of one. My attitude is like a child and so are my emotions and my excitement and how I act about things and see the world. I also love sweets and he says the way I act about it is like a child. I still like...

    My Child Within Is Healthier An Happier In The Present

    I wasn't a child when I was a child.  I had adult responsibilities much too young.  Being too grownup doesn't allow a young child to develop as a child needs to.  My child within  has been stirring for only a few years. A message floats upon the wind only she can hear it...
