When I was a kid..it was a great time. Maybe not all of the time, but most of the time. I had no clue about what it would be like to be an adult someday. Life was so simple in those days. Not much of a care in the world and the world was a different place then. I sometimes wish I could go back to it all again, but then I would never have the opportunity of knowing the joys of being an adult and having a husband and family. Just the same, I can never forget the joys of being a child. If it could only be that way for the rest of the children in this world. I remind myself of that everyday. There's always someone somewhere in this world who has had a far worse childhood then I could ever have had.

I remember well that at 9-10 years old, my big bike was just like the trusty steed that the cowboys on TV had.....on a bike, i was so independent, i could go anywhere my imagination could create....as long as it was in the neighborhood.....lol....

talk about true freedom! Nothing felt as good as getting on your bike and riding it around the neighborhood. Isn't it ironic how it made us feel so grown up and yet now we give anything to have that feeling of being a kid once again...even if only for a moment.

Hi 60s Chic, I agree with you 100%...it was a simple time...many times, we made up our own games. There was always something to do, and we never needed batteries. I wish the kids of today, were as happy now, as we were then.
I must say though, I do like having a husband and the thrill of being a mother. Time moves on...:)

When I was a kid having a dollar in my pocket made me feel rich, now kids don't even know what 1 is.

Getting our first car, was much the same feeling...it's just that they made the neighborhood too big...lol...

i keep trying to recapture the magic I would feel at Christmas when I was a kid. Though my children spark a little of the magic when I'm watching them at Christmas, It's never felt the same since I've become an adult.
