“Put that back” . . . I said it last night at Kohl’s and I am saying it more and more as my son and I go into stores.
This time it was a Clifford stuffed animal.
I couldn’t keep the smile in my heart from appearing on my face though.
Ya see . . . I loved Clifford when I was a child, and I get so happy when I see my son liking something I liked when I was younger. I love how it makes me feel like a kid again.
Although I can’t offer you a drink from the fountain of youth, I can recommend some things that really do make you feel decades younger!
Here our the toys and books that allow my husband to be young again!
This is a double whammy for my husband and I! I think one of my earliest memories was my mom reading me a Little Golden Book about becoming a big sister. I was only 3 years old when my mom was expecting my younger brother! And, well, there is no bigger fan of Star Wars than my husband. Although I am sure his excitement is definitely shared with many dads in our age group! Just last night Matt read “Revenge of the Sith” and our son absolutely loved when he imitated Darth Vader’s voice. What an awesome bonding experience for both of them!
I remember my dad reading Uncle Wiggly to us from an old brown book; I think it might have been his as a child!
I have to admit, this is my favorite game to play with my son! We play Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders, but I really love playing Uno with him. And he totally wins sometimes!
This was my son’s favorite toy at Christmas! Picture several generations gathered around our steps trying to make it go down half a flight at least!!!
I hope this brought you back in time and made you smile! If you are in a rut, try playing one of these games or reading one of these stories! Enjoy feeling like a kid again – I know I do!!!
