You were once a kid too! Do you remember yourself as a child? Do you remember what it was like to be a kid?

Today, we're going to reflect on one lovely moment from your own childhood. What were you doing? Who was there with you? How did you feel? Why is it a good memory?

We're making memories for our kids all the time. Take a moment to reflect on your own childhood and relive a special memory.

I remember eating dinner outside during summer as a family. Remember feeling so happy and content!

I remember making mud pies in the backyard in summer, and riding our bikes everywhere!

I remember being at my grandparents with all my cousins. We would all be outside playing while the adults were inside. One particular memory was when one of my cousins and I took a whole watermelon off and ate it by ourselves. There were about 12 other cousins who were pretty annoyed at us ;)

(and yes..we felt sick afterwards :))

I'm struggling with this one to be honest because my head is not in a good space at the moment - hard to find joy when you're not feeling it, but that's when we need to do that the most isn't it?

Camping with my dad was definitely a highlight from childhood, but also time spent at the beach or playing in the backyard at my grandmothers.

Sorry to hear that Morgaine71 - I definitely think that times when happiness doesn't come easily it can help to encourage it, even just a little bit.  My happy memory of being a child was how much enjoyment I used to get from playing with my cats. It was such an escape from a bad day to pat them!  It's making me think my kids could probably benefit from some pets!

Hope u feel better soon Morgaine x

One of my happiest memories are those spent playing with my cousins, especially my closest cousin who literally lived next door to us, separated low side wall purposely built that way so that the kids could climb over to each other's houses & play anytime. We played pirates, spaceships & Lego often in the lounge, simply using furniture & our imagination. We also made mud cakes & pies & wrapped these up in banana leaves & pretended to sell them to the villagers for a fortune (my parents)! ;)

Thanks girls. Just having a bad run with colds and tantrums! This too will pass.

your childhood memories are lovely :-)

Terracotta I agree re the pet thing. We always had animals in our house growing up and they were such a pivotal part of my childhood. They definitely made my life happier and richer. If I wasn't in a rental I'd seriously consider getting a kitten for my children - adopted from the RSPCA of course!

I have some great memories of wearing sleeping bags upside down and trying to manoveur our way around the house without falling over.
