I do! A lot actually. I always hear this, "You can never turn back time, so make most of it.." Very true! I miss a lot of things being a kid. I miss the times of having fun without worrying anything. The good old times with my childhood friends and the lifestyle I had before. Believe it or not, I also miss school, even I don't like it there. Nothing beat the old school. And yea, how can I forget the cool times of playing the Filipino traditional games. Those were truly fun. I wish I could like turn back time and have it experience it again.

Yes , I do.I miss my childhood time so much. I remenber I played with my sister and my friends , including fishing , seek and hide , flying kite ,rubber-hand skipping and so on . Indeed time being kid is the most relaxed and comfortable one of all life. But everyone has to grow up and faces the reality and deals with various kinds of problems.Perhaps it's why i miss my childhood.

i miss my childhood!esp. my childhood friends and i dont even know where they are and what they are doing now! it is an truth that we can not turn back time, we have to move on and on! we all have different path. To have the same good memory when i grow old, i think i'll cherish more what i have now!

Yes I miss being a kid. The thing I would want to do is have the knowledge I have now if I were a kid again. I would do things differently if I could.

I dont miss being a kid but i don miss being a teenager. I wish I could go back and take advantage of more things and I wish I could see all of my friends again. On the other hand I would'nt want to go back because I love my life like it is and I love my husband and baby girl.

i miss the lack of responsibility that one has when they are a kid. they dont have to worry about jobs or making money or paying bills. some kids will disagree with me and say that there is a lot of pressure because of school, but i think being a kid is way better than being an adult.

Me too! I miss my childhood days alot! I have a happy childhood. I miss the fun playing with my two brothers and our friends. ANd how life seems to be so simple by that time. Yeah, I love the Filipino Traditional games. We usually play piko, patintero, mataya-taya just name a few. It's really fun to look back to your childhood. Sometimes when the going gets tough, I sometimes reminisce on my childhood days, it helps a lot for me to relax just recalling all my childhood experiences. It's so nice to be back to your comfort zone. Happy Mylotting Smooch!

Sooner or later we won't be missing our childhood days but also the Filipino traditional games since even young ones are hooked up on the internet checking their friendster or other on-line games. I think we should do something about it or else it will just remain a history.

Not for a million years. I'd rather have the independence of adulthood, than be a kid again, regardless of how wonderful childhood was supposed to be. I had a great childhood, I am just much happier as an adult.

Me,too. I miss the old days I spent with my fellow childhood friends. Now, we can't play like the kids anymore so its really sad to feel that way. I miss the days that my parents don't ask me to do some things that the kids don't do like studying.

The only thing I think I truly miss about being a kid is not ever having to worry about money...when its coming, where its going, how much...etc. There was no stress. I could just have fun.

Yeah that's right...! I truly miss being a kid... Its funny that when you were a kid, few years back, you wish you'd grow up fast! And now that you're all grown up, you wish you could go back.. hahaha... But really, the life back then was much more carefree, simple and happy. The older you get, the more you learn about the complexity of life... The more you realize how things are different now and how mixed up stuffs could be... And you're to deal with them... Talk of the Old school, haha... all those sweaty games we've had when we were in grade school... all those little quarrels we had where girls are still allowed to punch boys in the face.. and no body would make an issue out of it... haha... I miss them a lot...

Yeah, if only we can bring back time. I do miss being a kid. Being a kid means less responsibilities so that means less problems too. Less responsibilities, more play. Now as an adult, it's a balance of both or a little less play. Being a kid means we're taken care off well. Going to school is quite fun too! The toys. I got loads of them and they're the good ones too! Now they're being passed to my nephews. As an adult, i think somehow we still have the kid in us.

I would say yeah some times I do miss being a kid. You don't have to worry about bills and paying this and that. Your needs are taking care of for you. You don't have to worry about the worlds economy you just play and have fun. I miss it some time but I don't miss school.

Yes, of course. I miss being a kid sometimes specially if I see kids playing. I saw happiness on their faces. When I play with my son, I miss being a kid. We play together with his dinosaur toys and we enjoy playing together. there are times that I hope that I will be a kid again. Being a kid is fun and kids plays a lot without thinking of any problems.

I miss it sometimes... It was such a free time and you felt like you were going to live forever! 31 sounded so very old. I miss all the alone time and not having any real worries. I could live without the highschool years though, that was not as fun as chasing the dog around and catching fireflys ;)
