 Close your eyes... And go back...

*Before the Internet or the AIM
*Before semi automatics and weed
*Before playstation2 or X-box
*Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night...

..Way back...

*I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk.
*Red light, Green light.
*Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came on.
*Mother May I?
*Red Rover
*four square
*Hula Hoops
*Running through the sprinkler
*Happy Meals
*Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car

Wait...

*Watchin' Saturday Morning cartoons
*Like Hey Arnold and Doug
*Recess
*Or what about legends of the hidden temple, global guts, double dare, bloody mary and who, ARE YOU AFFRAID OF THE DARK!
*Who could forget Snick
*Or the teenage mutant ninja turtles, scooby doo, and Power Rangers,
*Christmas morning...
*Your first day of school
*Bedtime Prayers and Goodnight Kisses

*Climbing trees
*Getting an ice cream off the ice cream truck (the real ice cream truck w/ cones & banana splits)
*A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers
*Jumpin' down the steps
*Jumpin' on the bed
*Pillow fights
*Runnin' till you were out of breath
*Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt and you almost peed your pants
*Laughing so hard that you did pee your pants
*Being tired from playin' all day
*Your first crush...
*Rainy days at school meant playing "Heads up 7-Up" & "King chase the Queen" in the classroom
Remember that?

I'm not finished yet...

*Kool-Aid & Icee Cups was the drink of the summer
*Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars or spokes
*Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school
*Class Field Trips
*When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.
*When getting high was swinging on the swing-set
*When $5 seemed like a million, and another dollar a Miracle.
*When your parents took you to McDonalds and you were so cool.
*When Toys r Us overuled the "mall"

I want to go back to the time when...

*Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"
*Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!"
*"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.
*Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"
*Catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening
*It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
*Saying cuss words were referred to the "F, B or S - word" or h-e double hockey sticks.
*Being old, referred to anyone over 20.
*The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.
*The only real heart break you had was when your mom wouldnt buy you that new toy
*Nobody was prettier than Mom
*Nobody was cooler than Dad
*Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better
*It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the amusement park.
*Getting an inch of snow was a dream come true.
*Abilities were discovered because of a "double-dog-dare"
*Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.

If you can remember most or all of these, then you have LIVED!!!

You named all of my shows! It was very cute because it brought back old memories of playing outside with friends. Except our icecream man never got down and made any banana splits.

*sigh* damn I remember those days. Everything started changing when I started middle school but yup badically my childhood was like that. And the cartoons are unforgetable :( I miss that. I hate how my mom is not the mom she was to me and my 2 sisters back then. (we are now 22,21 and 19). She always made bday parties for us, was always happy, did everything with us and now shes always sad, mad, tired and I feel bad for my little sisters who r 11,9,8, and 3. I can say my childhood was fun even though my dad was an alcoholic but he loved us. My little sisters dont have that :(
