It’s Monday. Time for Monday Listicles brought to you by Stasha, photographer extraordinaire, at The Good Life. This week’s theme is kids—reasons it’s great to be a child or reasons it is not. I know I would really enjoy being a kid again. What about you? I also know I really enjoy the Monday Listicles community and I encourage you to check it out and participate. I mean really, how long does it take to create a list?
