friday fives

this weeks friday fives over at beth's blog, just me and my life, are 5 things you miss about being a kid.

1. playing sports

i used to play softball, soccer, and basketball. it was so much fun because i got to play with all of my friends. and the park is right across from my moms house so i didn't have to go far for practice and games!

2. music

ok, i totally miss the music of my childhood. you know, nsync, britney spears, backstreet boys, christina aguilera. and even more. i remember singing in the car at the top of my lungs (not that i don't still do that). it was fun when my friends were in the car. i'm sure it wasn't much fun for the driver though :)

3. sleep

it seems like i got a whole lot more sleep as a kid. i was never tired. why can't it be that way now?? guess that's why we have caffeine!

4. board games

i really miss playing board games (yes, i know i can still play them. but it's not the same). i remember playing them a lot as a kid. i loved life and scattergories. i loved when my cousins came to visit because we'd always play games. we'd mainly play scrabble, and i would lose. but it was ok because it was still fun! and they were older so they were smarter (that's my excuse).

5. no worries or responsibilities

aside from worrying about my outfit for the middle school dance, and having to make my bed in the morning, i didn't really have any responsibilities and worries when i was a kid (at least compared to the worries and responsibilities i have now). it's hard to remember a time without responsibilities and worries! it's ok though. we all have to grow up sometime. and now i can watch addison in her carefree days :)
