Beyond the Books is a weekly meme hosted by which gives bloggers topics (mostly non-bookish) to discuss about. This is a fun way of learning more about each other. Check out her blog for the schedule of topics.


This week’s topic is:

The things I miss about being a kid


Here is what I miss about being a kid:

  • Being able to eat whatever I wanted and not having to worry about gaining weight (I had a fast metabolism when I was younger).
  • Having little responsibilities (only homework and chores) and not be relied upon as the main provider of the household.
  • No bills to pay.
  • Having someone drive me around.
  • All the vacations they get during the year, especially their long summer time off from school.
  • Wear whatever I want (even if they don’t match) and not worry what a boss would say
  • Getting away with making mistakes by saying “I didn’t know, I’m just a kid!”
  • How easy it was to make friends (by playing together)
  • My grandparents
  • Having someone do the cooking and grocery shopping
  • Being excited about birthdays (I stopped counting at 35).


Now it is your turn. What do you miss about being a kid?

      I miss that too! I think now that we are adults everyone is so busy and also cautions of strangers (which we should be). Thanks for stopping by!

      When we were younger we didn’t have to worry about gaining weight and high blood pressure. Now I have to be really careful of what I eat lol.

  1. Ha ha great list! And so true… agree w/ all, but especially those long summer vacations, having all summer to play, and grandparents too. And food- it’s amazing the food we could burn though as a teenager LOL.

  2. The not having to cook dinner completely slipped my mind until I saw it on Karen’s post. Ha ha. That is a major thing for me now, too. Having a long summer break was wonderful, I agree. 🙂
