#BEDM DAY 25: Best things about childhood

I think one of my favourite childhood memories has to be visiting Disneyland Paris when I was 6 years old. I remember it vividly. My first roller coaster, getting my Thumper toy, meeting a pirate and getting my autograph book signed by as many characters as possible.

I always rocked a lot of polka dots
As much as I like being an adult, there are definitely some great things about childhood. Here’s a few things that came to mind in no particular order.

·      That moment at the end of swimming class where they’d throw the foam floats rafts out.
·      School trips
·      The last day of term & summer holidays
·      Being proud of my extensive cuddly toy collection
·      Generally not having to worry about everything – no bills or anything
·      Being taken care of by my parents
·      Riding my bike everywhere


·      90s tv shows were amazing!
·      I hate to say this, but school. Since I left, I’ve grown to appreciate learning.
·      Late nights (like 8.30, when it was getting dark) of playing in the street with friends
·      Birthday parties – especially the ones at the activity centres with the ball pits
·      Rounders
·      Christmas – that pure excitement and not being able to sleep
·      Not worrying how I looked

Yep I was definitely a weird kid.
What were the best things about your childhood?

    Your childhood pics are great! You look so happy, love your list of things from childhood I too miss the not worrying & riding my bike – maybe I should get one & find a big hill relive the freedom of racing to the bottom! I also now love learning & wish I had appreciated school more & soaked up all the info going! I still get excited at Xmas & go over the top with cheesy holiday traditions – fab post, sorry for rambling comment!
    Bee Happy and Healthy

      Thanks! It was a super happy time for me so I count myself very lucky. You should go find a big hill – just make sure your brakes work! And rambling comments are my favourite comments 🙂 x
