To be a kid again…

Name something that makes you want to be a kid again. Is it a food? A toy? Maybe your credit card bill? Seriously though, take us back to something that makes you wish you were a kid again, and why…

What makes me want to be a kid again?

Well, as I’ve said before, I live in a unit block. And in this block of units, there are a few children as well. And listening to these kids play some evenings or weekends makes me long to be a kid again…reliving my own childhood days.

It started when I moved here last August. Their football and then later their cricket ball landed in my balcony (I live on the first floor) and that reminded me of the number of times my friends and I had lost our cricket balls in the bushes or hit the balls into someone’s balcony. Hearing the kids in my building play cricket and tennis and football (soccer) almost makes me want to join in on the fun…the innocence…the laughter.  Hearing them scream at one another to “catch it” is eerily similar to my own childhood.

They make life look so simple.

I wish I could go back to being a kid just to relive those days of enjoying football and cricket. And playing like there was no tomorrow.

With no other worries…

Just pure bliss…

So what about you? Is there anything that makes you want to be a kid again?

Until next time,

    Watching kids play always makes me nostalgic. The happy and carefree days of childhood flash before me. I would give anything to be a child again. Truly then Wordsworth said – Heaven lies about us in our infancy.
    Btw you have got a very nice blog here. Loved reading your posts 🙂

    What a charming post, for me, a life without worries is what would make me want to be a young child again. As you say, it would be wonderful to recapture that feeling of pure bliss.
