Sunday Social

Sunday Social

1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
The lack of responsibility. I used to spend hours playing outside with friends, reading books or just sitting around doing nothing and I didn't have anything else to worry about. Yeah, there was homework, but that was the most difficult thing I had to tackle. 

2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
Not really. I tried to nickname myself Mandi for awhile, but it didn't catch. A lot of people called (and still call) me Manda, but that was just being too lazy to say all three syllables. My little brother called me Dee for awhile, because my sister Abby was Bee and I was Dee (he's 10 years younger than me).

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
Monkey bars! I had the best blisters as a kid from all the time I spent crossing the monkey bars. I also loved to hang upside down from them.

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
A teacher. As long as I can remember, that's what I wanted to be. That and a princess.

5. What was your favorite toy?
Barbies. My sister and I played For.Ever. We had whole lives being lived by our dolls that just went on and on and on. 

6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?

My neighbors, sister, and I had a lemonade stand "company" called M.A.K.A (which stood for our initials) we went all out with this company and even had contracts... which stated that I got a MUCH higher percentage of the profits than the other three. My parents are still amazed by how I conned the other kids into thinking that was cool. Our lemonade stand also got free supplies from our parents (which meant higher profits) and we convinced the youngest member of the group to be our errand girl because she was "so much faster than the rest of us".


  1. I loved the monkey bars as well, but sadly as an adult I can't even make it across them anymore.. Though I don't miss that white line of callous that was there my entire primary school years!

  2. It's amazing how, as children, we thought chores and homework were such responsibilities. Oh, to go back to those days when that was "all" we had to worry about!

  3. Teacher and a princess - great picks :) Sometimes I wish I could go back and tell myself to ENJOY having no responsibility! I totally wasted the time wishing I was an adult ;)


The best part of blogging is hearing from my readers, so share your thoughts and ideas... or just say "hi"!
