I'm Hooked!

Have you ever had such a rough day that you just wish that you could go back to being a kid again? To be a kid again would mean no bills, no responsibilities besides cleaning up and doing other minor chores, you wouldn't have to worry about a job, finances, and other mundane things. Honestly, there are many times when I wish that I could go back to being a Barbie doll's stylist, and caring for my Pound Puppies, Quints, and other toys. I have such fond memories of my childhood. I really hope that my children can say the same when they are my age, and look back on all of the different memories they made.

One day while I was perusing the Internet, I found a website. This website let me have the opportunity to temporarily step outside of reality, and go back to being a semi-kid again. The memories poured in... Strawberry Shortcake, Popples, The Sylvanian Hills Families, Cabbage Patch Kids, Sweet Secrets, Keypers.... and the list goes on. I was so engrossed in all of the things I found that I used to own. It was sooo fun. If you're a kid of the '80's, and you have fond memories of the toys you used to play with, check this out! I so wish that my daughter would have the opportunity to play with the awesome toys I got to play with as a kid. It really makes me wish that I could have enough money to go on ebay, and buy her one of every kind of my favorite toys. Maybe she'll get some of them eventually, when she's a little bit older.

So, if you're anything like me, and you wish you could sneak back to kid-dom every once in a while, take a look at that site, and maybe it'll help whisk you away from the craziness for a few. It sure brought back some memories for me, and that is something I always enjoy!! From now on, when I need a "break" from reality.... I'm going to take a leap back to my childhood; it may be just for a few minutes, but it's a wonderful few minutes :o)
