don't act your age, act your shoe size

brittany murphy

sometimes i have often compared myself to the character molly gunn from the movie uptown girls. i remember when this movie came out. i was actually a nanny myself and the youngest girl of the children i cared for watched the movie with me. her name is lauren. lauren was ray and i was molly. looking back now it's funny to think that a child taught me how to act my age and i helped teach her that it's ok to let loose and be free. lauren is now 15 and i am 27, i have been watching her since she was four. i still act like a child with her and have a blast being around her.

Ray: I'm not going anywhere, especially with you.
Molly Gunn: Oh, yes you are. We are going to sit in giant teacups and spin round and round in circles until we puke.
Ray: Are you on crack?
Molly Gunn: We're gonna have fun.

what's the point in being so serious? be silly, have fun, live without regrets. love the you that you are. embrace and love yourself, you're all you've got.

grownups never stay friends with kids... i don't see any grownups around here.
