Share something you miss having from when you were a young child growing up.

I’ve never really thought about this before. The first thing that comes to mind is having my mom take care of me – you know, making my meals, doing my laundry – all the things I have to do myself now. I miss being surrounded by my sisters, although I definitely didn’t appreciate it then!

I also miss the innocence and ignorance of childhood. I realize that espcially today, as we remember the many victims of 9-11. My kids don’t remember that day, and they definitely don’t understand. Life is just day to day for them. As they get older they’ll have to find out what the world is all about, and I wish for them that they could just stay the way they are right now.
