What was the last thing that reminded you of being a kid?
I ‘heard’ a modern equivalent last week, whilst visiting dad
dads mate was up (he’s at least 50), we were all coffeeing/chatting away and then the mates iphone went, he smiled, answered it and we all heard his missus yell ‘your teas on the table’ and just like childhood he was off ……….Posted 4 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber
I bought something yesterday I’ve always wanted. It’s getting delivered tomorrow.
I woke up this morning at 4am, first thing I thought about.
I got an email today saying it’s being delivered SD tomorrow – working from home day booked.
Already wondering what time postie will get here, not sure how I’ll sleep tonight (really!)
All bloody ridiculous, irrational, immature and totally unimportant ..but, heck, I’m enjoying the childishness, letting the giddy excitement grip me. Christmas as a 10 year old hasn’t got anything on this feeling.
Anyone else experienced this, past their teenage years?!Posted 4 years agoBigJohnSubscriber
Mrs BigJohn & I took our 3yr old grandson on a nice walk this morning. He was on his balance bike, we went to the park and fed the ducks and he scooted around the skate bowl a bit.
This afternoon I loaded him on the back of the pub bike and we rode up to Back2Bikes our local bike recycling charity and bought him a tiny Raleigh pedal bike with no stabilisers and proper inflatible tyres for £25.
It’ll be a while before he gets the hang of it but it made us feel very excited.Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Took 24 Beaver Scouts on a sleepover/camp. Couldn’t help but feel as excited as they were on Sat morning when they arrived, as for most it was the first time away from home overnight. The ubiquitous midnight torchlit feast etc. Heading off into the woods, all waterproofed up, oblivious to the rain as only 6 & 7 yr olds can be.Posted 4 years ago
Simply amazing. 🙂user-removedMember
My mum, banging on about what I was like as a kid, today. We’re visiting with the six month old and it sent her into rhapsodies of reminiscences. Other than that, the smell of wild garlic, crushed underfoot whilst walking through the woods. The incredibly strong stench always takes me back to various points in my life.Posted 4 years agoWillHMember
I take my son (18 months) to daycare on the bike on the way to work. His daycare has recently relocated so now we take a different route which involves a steep downhill (tarmac) section. Entirely unprompted he now sticks his arms out to the sides and goes “WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE” all the way down 😀
I nearly fell off laughing the first time, now I just want to join in, reminds me of running round pretending to be an aeroplane as a kid.Posted 4 years agogears_suckMember
My daughter (7yrs old) and I were on a bit of tricky trail. She on the tow along. I stopped at the bottom of the steep climb and told her. “Be ready and when I say go, pedal, pedal, pedal or we wont make it.” I took a breath put my foot in the cleat, one finger over left nostril and cleared the hooter with a blast. She says, “Is that the signal?”Posted 4 years ago
We fell about laughing. I hope she remembers that when shes grown up.molgripsSubscriber
Being a parent really makes me remember loads of things that happened when I was the kid… Like last night my eldest was puking everywhere all night, and we gave her a mixing bowl in which to barf. As a kid we had this yellow mixing bowl that was our puke receptacle, and also the everyday mixing bowl 🙂Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
We recently moved to the seaside town of my youth, and I find myself regularly riding up the long hill out of the town centre towards home, towing the kids in the bike trailer..
When I was a kid we would often see a fella toiling up the hill on his bike, towing his trailer – it was a bit of a tradition to spot him when we visited the seaside, and my Grandad would always chuckle at his endeavours..
I realised with a huge blast of nostalgia the other day that I am now that bloke.. 8)Posted 4 years ago
