Things I miss about being a kid:

1. Naps

2. Looking at an empty cardboard box and seeing a house, a car, a boat and something to color

3. Playing with Bubble-Wrap

4. Being genuinely entertained by a cartoon that I have seen 467 times

5. Believing in Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, etc.

6. Having all my problems disappear just by eating an ice cream cone

7. Mom or Dad telling me that everything was going to be fine - and it not even occurring to me that things might not really end up being fine.

8. Getting excited when clothes are too small for me

9. Playing all day

10. Making a wish and knowing that it will come true

11. Having someone push me on the swings and thinking that I'm flying

12. Being excited about the words Pool Party

13. Things being completely and totally uncomplicated

What a great blog! Thanks for forwarding me the link. Your posting about joining Facebook was hilarious. :)

I love this list of the things you miss about being a child -- especially the feeling of flying on the swing set. I still enjoy that.

Dude...I got a nap yesterday while she napped and it was the BEST thing in the world! Made up for the fact that she woke up at 5:00 ready to play with momma---she didn't notice that momma's eyes were half closed!

Don't ice cream cones still solve all problems?
