5 for Friday

Just Me and My Life

This is my first Friday 5. I am so excited about the topic...

5 Things You Miss About Being a Kid

1. I miss having no stress. No bills to pay, dinner to make, kids to worry about... I couldn't wait to grow up and now I miss the days of my childhood.

2. I miss being sitting in the chair with my daddy each night before bed. There was something so comforting about squeezing myself into the chair with him.

3. I miss having someone to take care of me when I was sick. Someone to comfort me when I was sad and someone to celebrate with me when I was happy. Sometimes you just need your mom. I miss the days when she was right there.

4. I miss the wonder and excitement I had when I was child. Everything was new. Anything was possible.

5. I miss us all eating dinner together. One of my most favorite childhood memories is us all sitting around the table talking and laughing. Then my brother and I in the kitchen doing dishes, complaining the whole time that our younger sister didn't have to help.

When I was child, I would have never guessed that the things I would miss would be so simple.


  1. Oh, the simple life! Your list reminds me of my own!

  2. its crazy how perspective changes as you get older!
