sweet idyllic 16, as it should be!
This brings me to happy memories of my teens. I forgot about babysitting. Thanks for reminding me of some of the good stuff.
Yes, things have really changed. I think we have lost something in the passing of time. We are faster,newer,more modern...but well, old was better in many ways.
yes! Although I hated babysitting...wasn't very good at it because I didn't have very good parenting role models. Glad you experienced happiness and joy in your teen years.
I loved babysitting. We were a little strapped for cash, and it was my ticket to the movies!Sounds like you came from a loving and stable family.
What a lovely 16!
It was a more innocent time, wasn't it? And we all babysat! Most kids now aren't willing to go there..."/
Life was similar even two decades back....now, it an alien world out there.
How times have changed...love reading your take on that age as juxtaposed to your daughters...Peace and blessings
Sounds like my life at 16!
With only using the 16 words I couldn't include all that too, but that was the way it was for me as well! ~Ames
Oh Jo. I love how much you expressed in these 16 tiny words. Well written...and such a true sentiment. I often wonder how some of my kids lost their direction, too.Warm holiday wishes!
