Have you heard someone recently, who wants to be a child again?

Of course every stage of our life is important, but childhood is an unforgettable time in our life. One has no worries, no tremendous workload, no caring about what others might think. Free from all these extra-added problems in life.

Beside that, as a child we spend our time mostly with our parents than in later life. They take care of us every minute and devote themselves to us. If we are ill we have a person to look after us. If we fight with other friends, they are there to give us a piece of advice.There is always someone who we can turn to…

I really miss the time when I just turned five. It was a beautiful summer day, the sun was just rising. Because of the very hot weather, I was sleeping on our rooftop. My mom came walking the stairs to wake me up for school, but as always I insisted to sleep for few more minutes & said the very thing I would say every morning. “Mama please, it’s early yet let me sleep for 10 more minutes and then I will get up”, she kept insisting that I am getting late, but I would keep my eyes shut until she would come & give me a kiss on my forehead.

After a while I woke up, wash my face with water and a small piece of soap in our bathroom & then came inside our only room where we had to sit, eat and sleep. I had a piece of bread fried in oil and also a glass of milk with a lot of sugar for my breakfast already prepared by my mom. Soon after having my breakfast I would take my bag which my Dad bought me from a very famous shop in Jalalabad. I would start walking to school. It was about 20-minute walk from our house, which was my daily routine in the mornings. In the evenings, I would go out & play with other children of my age. Creating houses from sand & imagining it was our palace we were going to live in.

Life was so simple, I had no responsibilities. All I knew was playing, eating & sleeping. There are a lot of more reasons why I want to be a child again.Defining them would take a lot of space & time now…

Would you also like to be a child again?? I am really interested in your opinions. Please comment below & let me know what you think. Thanks. 🙂
