"I don't want to grow up," our son confided to my husband wistfully at bedtime.
"Why?" my husband asked, intrigued. Our son gave it some thought.
"Because there are things you get as a kid that you don't get as an adult."
More thought, then our son's face lit up. "Candy!" he gasped with a grin. "And toys. When you're a kid, you get a toy for your birthday. When you're an adult, you just get a card."
