Today, I was sitting on my front porch watching the neighbor's kid have the time of his life with nothing more than a wooden stick and his imagination. MMT

Kids dont need expensive toys to enjoy themselves. A lesson in here for the adults? TS, Smile-Therapy.com

Makes me wonder what happened to my imagination.

I remember doing things like that. I still have an imagination & hope I never let it fade.

Ah, I remember me and a friend of mine had the most creative pretend games and we would even convince the other kids that our stories were real. I miss those days more than anything and while all my friends today keep saying they can't wait till they get to college, I keep wishing quietly to myself that I could go back to when I was 8.

I remember acting out random scenes from my mind that I made up on the spot, sometimes with stuffed animals. Always talking to myself.

I know what you mean Amerie, it's like there was something so genuine about the games of childhood, I wouldn't even knwo how to explain it. I'm a reminiscer and always think about simple moments me and the people in my life have had and it always makes my throat feel choked. I can't help but to miss those days and i can't help but to try to have many more days like that.

I was babysitting the other day and a kid (who was supposed to be sleeping) just laid there for an hour with two stuffed animals and talked to them. I miss those days too !! I remember about 11 or 12 years old just forgetting how to be creative.

Isn't it wonderful?? If I were you I would leave a large cardboard box on his lawn. Can you just imagine the fun he'd get into then! :o)
