When I was a kid...

I was reading an entry by one of my journal buddies where she described childhood memories.  My children are so spoiled these days.  When I was a kid we had one TV and got 3 channels!  We watched shows like Bonanza, The Big Valley (I had a crush on Nick), Little House on the Prarie.  NO one swore, or had sex.  There were no computers or video games.  We played OUTSIDE!  We had the fields and woods to explore.  We fished, had tea parties where we made "salad" with weeds and flowers.  We helped out Mom too.  We washed dishes by hand, helped out in the vegetable garden and learned how to cook.  We went to school and had homework.  We didn't dream of talking back to our teachers or parents for that matter!  Times sure have changed haven't they?  Everyone have a nice day!

Life seemed so simple then didn't it?  Families could watch tv together, just pick any show, no child control, in fact not even a remote control LOL, have a great day Linda...gg/Jackie

We had the same type of childhood.  I can't believe how it is now.

I remember those times too...and I often sit and wonder what Shelby will remember from her childhood. I realized as she got older I couldnt hold on to the old fashioned ways...well not all of them. We had to progress some. I dont think she will have bad memories...just different than mine. She is raised to respect others and be kind and helpful, do her chores and keep her animals. She will learn to cook and all those things before she is out of the house too, little by little she will learn it all.

Wow! We must be getting old. Just reading your comment almost brought tears to my eyes. I miss the simple days of being young and free, don't you?
