Memories from childhood

Remember what it was like to be a kid, running around without a care in the world? Well, stop reminiscing and start embracing your inner child! This Children’s Day, come with me on a journey into fav childhood memories.

 

When we were kids, we thought 10.00 was late bedtime, now I only wish I could go to bed at this kind of time!

 

Remember the time we used to get on the computer just for paint? The brighter kids played Solitaire.

 

When I was young and it rained, I used to watch two drops of water roll down the window and pretend they were racing.

 

When I was a kid, my social network was called ‘outside’.  We played with real friends, and not with weird machines on play stations.

 

Birthdays meant making cards at home with crayons and brushes.

 

Remember skipping home along with the postman to hear the good tidings he brought?

 

When I was a kid, I used to think the moon followed me everywhere.

 

Amar Chitra Kathas were the next best thing to Grandma’s stories.

 

Remember when getting high meant swinging on the playground? When protection meant a helmet? Dad’s shoulders were the highest place in on earth and mom was our hero? Your worst enemies were your siblings? Race issues were about who ran the fastest? Monopoly was only a card game? The only drug you knew was cough medicine? The only thing that hurt you were skinned knees from climbing trees? And goodbyes only meant for tomorrow?

 

I mean, remember when we were kids, and we couldn’t wait to grow up…what the hell were we thinking?

 

Remember waiting behind a door to scare someone, then leaving because they took too long to come out?

 

I miss the days when all it took to make me feel better was my teddy bear.

 

When I was little, I used to sing in the shower. Now? I make life decisions in there.

 

 

As Brian W Aldiss says, “When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults and they enter society, one of the politer names for hell. That is why we dread children, even if we love them, they show us the state of our decay.”

 

But, you know what, it is never too late to have a happy childhood.  The truth is, if we carry our childhood with us, we will never become older.

 

So bring out the child in you. Happy Children’s Day!!!
