People Share Specific Moments They Miss From Childhood

Most kids can’t wait to grow up and do all the things adults can do, and as a result, they may take some of the sweet parts of being a kid for granted. But looking back on our childhoods, it’s easy to see what we may have missed. People are sharing the things they experienced as a kid that they didn’t truly appreciate how cool it was until they were adults.

See if you can relate to some of these responses:

  • “Falling asleep somewhere — like in the car — and waking up in my bed.”
  • “Not only making friends easily but always getting to hang out with them easily because of school. As an adult, it's difficult finding the right time to hang out with one friend, let alone several.”
  • “Three months of summer vacation.”
  • “International travel. Seemed normal as a kid, but I didn't realize how rare it was until I was an adult. My family wasn't rich — my parents just put all of their entertainment and discretionary money toward traveling.”
  • “Home-cooked food. Every day.”
  • “For me, my answer is simply my parents. As a kid, the life you're given tends to be what you think life is. I greatly took for granted my parents and the love they gave me.”
  • “When I was a kid, my dad and I had a tradition every week of going to the video store and renting a movie or two to watch together. I remember I used to get really upset at him because every single time we'd actually start to watch the movie he would fall asleep. It wasn't until I was older that I realized that the reason he would fall asleep was that he was exhausted from working two very physically demanding jobs to try and give me the best life he possibly could.”
  • “The early stages of the Internet. It felt like I was part of a secret club. The vibe of it felt much more underground, and it had a ton of variety.”
  • “Eating meals at the table with the whole family, using food grown in our garden. I didn't see the value in it until I left my small town for college and realized that it wasn't the norm in a lot of households. Now I really appreciate the time and conversations my family had during meals.”
  • Walking around town without adult supervision and no one bothering you or calling the authorities.”
