Things I Miss About Childhood plus Friday Frivolity Link Party

What a wonderful week I have had spending time with visiting family. Including my munchkin, we had kids from 8 to 23. Which put me in the right frame of mind for our Friday Frivolity Host theme: Childhood. And it made me quite nostalgic for my own childhood. So, without further ado, here are some things I miss about childhood.

Things I miss about childhood - naps, pillow forts, hot lava, scented markers and more. nostalgia. childhood memories.

Oh please! send me to my room to be alone and think too!

If I have to explain, then I’m sorry you never got to play this.

If cushions weren’t used as islands in the lava to reach the bathroom or kitchen – then they were used for forts.

This is why teachers are begging for glue by winter break.

If I close my eyes I can smell them now. Mmmmmm! (the picture is an affiliate link to buy them and relive the memories yourself)

This and the eerily similar prime-time non-animated “Battle of the Network Stars” (google it kiddos). Yup, some high quality thought provoking entertainment there.

Well not since I had J. I never figured out Kegels so… uh, well, never mind…

This was actually well after my childhood, but I had to throw it in here considering the Pokemon Go craze.

True story: I instituted rho-sham-bo rules on the playground. No complaining about whose turn it was, whether it hit you, if it was on the line. Play Rock-Paper-Scissors, winner gets to decide then get back to playing. The parents and other teachers said kids were settling their own petty arguments this way in class and at home.

      I am assuming every American kid has played the lava game. I taught my kids and his friends and they LOVED it. Their parents, not so much…

    I can’t believe you can buy those markers again! I had forgotten all about them, but one look and I can already smell them. Not that I was sniffing markers as a child………
