What Do You Miss Most About Your Childhood?
With all the negativity and bashing of other people's opinions (not innocent myself), how about we have a question of a gentler nature? What do you miss most from your childhood... is it something your Mom did for you, your best friend, a favorite yummy snack, or a sport your played? You tell me. There is something about the innocence of a child, honest & sweet. Hope you all had a great childhood or at least have some good memories to share!
Physical energy and strength are the things I miss most about my childhood.
Oh wow that is such a good one! I miss my childish energy as well, now I have a auto immune disease and energy is a long forgotten feeling lol.
Thanks for the answer RTalloni. If you don't mind me asking what was ur fav thing to do with tht energy?
Whatever I did needed to be creative no matter what I did–creativity ruled! If I walked to a neighbor's I wanted to walk around the edge of the yards, gates were for climbing, trees called my name. The funny thing is that I was/am sort of a klutz...
Haha me too I had so many bumps and bruises, hills seemed so much bigger, an incline on the sidewalk was a ramp for my scooter. Just like you said; the world was basically a big playground!
Mainly I miss the music of my era along with how much better food tasted before the nation got carried away with adding numerous additives, hormones, antibiotics, and other items to create shortcuts in an effort to increase production/profits.
I miss many things... so i'll name a few lol.
1.) faking sick and mom "falling" for it haha, I was such a spoiled kid!
2.) All the great cartoons, poor kids today... the 90s I think were the best era of cartoons in my opinion although they are pretty much the only ones i've seen.
3) Little league, when sports were about fun... sure winning was fun but win or lose, stud or dud, theres something about little league that captures the essence of childhood so well.
I miss having my dad around (he passed away when I was 16).
I miss my mom bringing me juice and making me special food when I was sick and I could just lay on the couch and watch The Littlest Hobo... now I have a toddler who doesn't care if I'm sick, I just have to get on with it.
I miss not worrying about money.
I miss summer vacation - two whole months with nothing to do!
I miss the simplicity.
I miss big family dinners on holidays. I moved 12 hours away from home when I was 18 and have only made it to a handful since.
I could probably go on and on. I have a seriously bad case of nostalgia.
I got a bad case too! As a matter of fact I have some pokemon toys displayed in my room :p
Great answer(s) Aime. Wow what an early age to lose your Dad, takes a tough girl to get through those years without a daddy!
Summer... enough said! Lol.
@Aime yup, these non religious questions don't get attention nearly as easily as the religious ones but they a lot less stressful in the comment section lol. I had never heard of The Littlest Hobo but i'm sure my older brothers have haha.
Probably not, haha! It's a Canadian show from the early 80s. Kind of like a homeless Lassie.
Oh yeah your right probably not, lol & it did remind me of Lassie.
Did you Canadians have pokemon, or nickelodeon? I wasn't rich enough to have cable back then lol so when I got to see all the good cartoons at my friends house I was so excited.
I miss being carefree and not have to think about career and money.
I miss the long school holidays when we can play all day and the only thing to worry about is getting scolded by parents.
I miss my Sega game console..games were so simple yet fun back then (e.g paperboy game!).
I miss eating a lot without having to worry too much about my weight (metabolic rate was awesome).
I miss hanging out with friends and playing games at school when the exams are over. Most days in school would be spent playing card games, watching movies at the school auditorium, sleeping in class.
I miss not worrying. I loved life back then. I remember this hill with a tree at the top that I would climb waiting to see dad's truck coming home from work. Then I would jump down and race to the end of the road where he would let me in and sit on his lap and let me drive up to the house. those were truly special memories for me.

I'm a nighttime girl, but I have noticed men like to do it in the morning. Is it an "energy" thing?

Curious, who is your favorite hubber, and why?Everyone has that certain favorite hubber, talent wise, writing skills, personality and someone you look forward to reading or visiting. The answer should be one just as if the hubbers were dangling from a cliff and you are allowed to save only...

Why is it that I frequently don't get notified of new hubs published by hubbers that I follow?I feel guilty when I stumble upon a hub that has been sitting for days and never received notification for it from HP. I've gone back into my email and double checked on several occasions and they're not...
