It's not all ice cream for breakfast and having all the answers
Kids seem to think that being an adult is pretty cool. We can do whatever we want, when we want to do it. We have all the answers to every question, and we can hop in the car and go anywhere.

They may wish that they could be all grown up already, but we’d all like to take a trip back to a more care-free time in our lives. These grown-ups thought that adulthood was going to be a lot different for them.
The idea that adults could always do anything they wanted to, anytime. (avidscifireader)
