When you think back to your own childhood, hopefully you remember it as a magical time, a time free of responsibilities and worries when your imagination had free rein and days were spent playing long, involved games without a care in the world.
We want to recreate those times for our own children and one of the many joys of parenting is having a second chance to see the world through their eyes again. But we'll never get back that sense of freedom and imagination again, nor meals and treats appearing as if by magic.
Here are a few of the things we miss about being kids.
1 Being read to every night. Actually, make that the whole bedtime routineGiphy
2 Being told how clever and brave and all-round fabulous you are on a daily basisGifsAnimes.fr
3 Going to sleep in the daytimeGiphy
4 Freedom from a to-do listGiphy
5 The ability to be anybody and do anythingGiphy
6 Having technology at their chubby little fingertipsGiphy
