So, maybe I didn’t watch cartoons on Saturday mornings….and I was definitely not watching Power Rangers for any reason….but I did watch the Fresh Prince. 😉
I turned on the tv this morning so Magdalen could watch a show while I showered. For the first time in 20+ years, I came across 3 shows that I have missed a little bit.
1. Strawberry Shortcake
2. My Little Pony
And yes, they were playing in that exact order on the same channel. Jackpot? I think so.
I started daydreaming again (as usual) and thought of all the things I miss. Then I randomly came across the above pin on Pinterest that pretty much summed up my thoughts today.
I miss old shows like Laverne & Shirley or Happy Days or Fat Albert. Not because they were the best shows ever, but because they take me back. Waaaaaaaaay back to a much simpler time in my life.
I miss my roller skates and the scabs I always had on my knees.
I miss digging in the dirt with a butter knife with my brother. Because it was relaxing and we were bored.
I miss riding my bike all the time and building ramps with the neighbors to jump our bikes on.
I miss the excitement of going to school every day to see my friends.
I miss playing outside in the neighborhood until after dark.
I miss piling up in my bedroom on a Sunday and reading as many books as I could fit into 12 hours.
I miss being able to eat as many graham crackers smeared with marshmallow cream as I could until I felt sick.
I just miss being a kid.
I’m not complaining today. Not a bit. I just like to daydream a little sometimes, and miss the young me while remembering some great old times.
Now….back to my regular scheduled parenting. ; )
