First, I would turn it back to when all of my kids were little and at home. I don’t want to change anything because every word and every deed brought me my 3 amazing grandbabies. I just want to spend more time, take more pics, have more talks, more hugs, more kisses.. More “I love yous,” even tho grown son #2 told me just yesterday that all of his friends ask him why we say I love you so much. Then my son and I at the same time said, “Like you can say I love you too much.” I’m happy my kids still hang onto that.
Second, I would turn it back for all of the cool stuff from my childhood.
This was my favorite toy ever. I kept myself entertained for hours until my brother came along and bumped my masterpiece.
I had this Barbie head too and melted the hair when I tried to use a curling iron on it.
I used to love playing these on the kitchen floor and the driveway.
This stuff is still around and altho as a kid I thought it was very cool, what the hell were my parents thinking??? This stuff is SO toxic. Every time you inhaled to blow the balloon bigger you were inhaling those toxins.
My favorite car ride toy.
And EVERY Sunday I would wait sooooo stinkin’ patiently for my dad to finish the Sunday paper so I could have the funnies and do this…
I miss the simple stuff. Mostly I miss the people I used to share the simple stuff with.
I still buy coloring books – the real ones not the over-priced “adult” coloring books – and crayons and I can lose myself in coloring for hours.
If you could turn back time but change nothing, where would you go, what would you do and with who?
What are some things you miss from being a kid?
Sorry for the late post. We actually got a foot of snow today and more is coming down. I’m so surprised. Last year we had a couple of dustings. I had to run to the store before everyone else was running there. So happy I made it there and back without personal incident altho I did witness several fender benders, sideswipes and fish tails going on around me.
They don’t salt the roads here. They put a deicer on them and then sand but they only do it on the main roads so getting around our neighborhood and out onto the main road was slow going and a little hinky.
It’s good to be home safe n’ sound. Time to snuggle in with my book and some cafe’ mocha.
