Remember When {a guest post}

Hi friends!
Today Renee from Cover to Cover...and Everything in Between is here to share with you.


Remember When…

…life was just about rolling in the grass and not caring if you got dirty?

… the most important thing was that you didn’t miss Tom & Jerry or The Bugs Bunny Show on Saturday mornings?

…you laughed and giggled just *knowing* you’d be tickled by mommy or daddy?

…you were just innocent enough to know it was just make-believe, but just happy you could pretend that mud-pie was real?

Ah, to be a child again…

As an adult I often forget to stop and say hi to my young self from long ago.

I forget…

…to remember what it was like not to have a care in the world.

…that mac ‘n’ cheese was a perfectly fine meal and to stop trying to make a gourmet dinner all the time.

…that making a craft or baking a cake doesn’t have to come out “perfect” as long as you are having fun with the whole process.

That’s when I remember, I can go back to that pretty much anytime I want (!)

I have to beautiful gifts from above that I am dearly blessed with - my 7 year old and 5 year old. Both of them remind me every day to stay young and that I’m not *that* old yet.

“Come play, Mommy!”

“Let’s make cake!”

“Let’s read!”

Yeah, “let’s”!

…because although you can never go back to that age again…

You Can Pretend : )


Thanks so much for sharing today Renee.
