mine would be when i was a pre teen. the innocence of those days are priceless. my parents were still together and i was just a happy confident fun loving pre teen with a lot of friends and a great future a head of me.
My parents made my brother and my childhood wonderful! Going to work with my dad. I was able to take a day off from school and ride in the semi with him as he went to a few of the stores he managed and dropped loads. My mom would take me out to eat and shop on my birthday even if it was on a school day. The elementary principal approved of that too. She said she wished more parents did that with their kids. I enjoyed exploring our acreage with my brother for hours on end. In the winter, we would pull a sled or tractor tire intertube behind the 3 wheeler or we would build forts. My dad would join us too.
the relationship I had with my mom. I was 17 years old and still sleeping in her bed when my step dad would go out of town. after their divorce something happened to her... she isn't the mom I knew before.
one other thing was helping my grandpa drive the tractor when I was 6 or 7. I loved the wind in my hair and the smell of the field.
Summers. Being able to wake up before the adults, and stay out until after step dad went to bed at night. No being hit, or screamed at, or anything like that. Just running wild in the woods with my friends out in the boondocks.
