Oh how we miss those wonder years! As we celebrate Children's Day on November 14, we look back at all the things we will miss the most from way back when we were little!
So here we go then: 11 things that we miss about our childhood
1. Going to school
Okay so it may not have been something we looked forward to every morning, but isn't that the very thing we miss the most about our childhood?
School is where we've had our fondest memories, wouldn't you agree?

2. Our school friends
What would school be without that friendly bunch? Right?

3. The bonds we forged!
The pinky promises of never leaving each other... come what may!

4. The simple joys of life
Like a few minutes on the swing or going down that slide or climbing trees remember that? :-)

10. Our grandparents
Because there was no one who was wiser, more loving and pampering and someone we could run to when our parents were angry with us! :-)

11. Knowing our parents will always be there
Don't you just miss the assurance that there will be a hand for you to hold on to when you're in a crowd; that someone will be there every evening when you get back from your evening playtime? We do too!
