As soon as we learned how to talk, we were making wishes. But just because we knew how to make them didn't mean that we really thought them out. Here are some wishes that you should be thankful didn't come true.
1. "I wish I had superpowers."
The government would not be okay with a kid running around shooting lasers from their eyes.
2. "I wish I was a princess."
It might be fun to dress up like a princess, but actually being one includes a lot of responsibilities and restrictions.
3. "I wish I had a pony."
As adorable as they are, ponies are a lot of work.
4. "I wish I had a race car."
You couldn't even drive it until you were at least 16, not to mention that it's a one way ticket to getting a speeding citation.
5. "I wish I could breathe underwater."
Do you have any idea how many dangerous creatures there are lurking under the sea? You're much safer on land!
6. "I wish I was famous."
Nobody needs that much attention. It's invasive!
7. "I wish I was on tv."
That's a job. Kids need to be kids, save acting for when you're older!
8. "I wish I had a little sibling."
Babies can be loud and messy, and the more siblings you have, the less attention, money, and space goes to you. Plus, you might have to share your room! One or two siblings is enough!
9. "I wish I could just grow up already!"
Don't waste your childhood waiting around for adulthood. Cherish your youth, you're only young once!
10. "I wish I was pretty."
This one's just a waste of a wish, I guarantee you're already beautiful!
Maybe it's worth thinking twice before blowing out that birthday candle this year.
