In spite of a having had a nice family and a happy enough childhood, I wanted to be grown up when I was a little kid. So I suppose it was kind of a matter of, "I'm happy enough for now, being a grown-up is a long way off (so I don't have to think about it yet) I suppose when I was (again) a LITTLE kid I just saw being a little kid as a good thing to be but also being a grown-up as a good thing thing to be.
The house was peaceful, and my parents were kind; so I didn't see anything bad about being a grown-up. The other thing was, though, I didn't feel like being a little kid meant being helpless and/or being on the receiving end of bully-parents. (So I didn't have the thing, "I can't want to be grown up so I can be bully smaller people. I wanted to make that clear because I think many, many, people view being a grown-up as essentially getting to bully other people.)
