It is the last Sunday of September can you all believe it? Wow how time flies when you're trying to juggle kids, work, a house, marriage, and a life! Enjoy this Sunday Social as I take you way back when…
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
I always think about this when I'm playing with the kids and I have to honestly say the innocence and imagination, when I was a kid anything was possible and nothing could hold me back. Now, well that's a different story even though I've been working on moving past the limitations and allowing myself to believe anything really is possible. If you can dream it, you can do it, right!
2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
I didn't really have any nicknames as a kid except in 11th grade when we moved and the movers thought my Mom said “label the boxes for that room Flora” not realizing she said Laura, so that was the big joke around my house for a few years and every now and then it still gets brought up.
3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
Hang upside down on the spider or do the basket with friends, oh the fun and innocent days, it is hard to come by a spider nowadays. If you don't know what I'm talking about I couldn't even dig up a picture to show you but I can attempt to describe it. It was one of those arched metal climbing obstacles that had 4 ladders that went up to the middle that had a circle hole in the top. We used to hang out up there for the entire recess, one of our teachers even let us use the fire door to get out first, he was the best! Oh the good old days :).
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
Funny enough I always wanted to be self-employed specifically own a bar but hey I still have time to make the bar a reality but I am self-employed and really happy with it on most days.
5. What was your favorite toy?
Favorite toy?! Now that's a hard one so many to choose from. When I was really young it would have to be a cardboard box that could be transformed into almost anything as I got older I would have to say our pretend house with a fully equipped kitchen and then into barbies! I had two sisters growing up so we had lots of fun and imagination!
6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
It would have to be when my sister and I had a babysitter and she was too busy talking on the phone to her boyfriend so we blew up a plastic floaty canoe and rode it down the stairs and she didn't even know until we hit the wall at the bottom and had a HUGE crash but WELL worth the fun!
And that's a little peak into me way back when, it is fun to remember all the little fun times we had. The most important lesson is to encourage my kids to keep their innocence as long as they can! Be sure to join me for next week's Sunday Social be sure to let me know so I can stop by.
I'd love to hear from you!
