That Was My Life Growing UP!
grew up in Roblin Manitoba, Canada ....on Sunday's you didn't ask if you were going to church you got dressed and went...It was during a time, when everyone tr
eated each other like Family. We went outside to play, we got dirty.... We bought chips & candy from the corner store. We played Red Light, Green Light, Kick the Can, Simon Says, Hide and Seek, Dodge Ball, Red Rover, Baseball, Softball and Football, skipping & jumpsies from the elastics our mailman gave us. We could ride our bikes to the store, or the park, and stay all day. We even swam in the River when we had the chance. We ate beans & hot dogs, mac and cheese & peanut butter sandwiches. We walked or rode a bike everywhere and never worried about safety. We never thought to lock our windows or doors and cars up at night . We had chores to do around the house, we helped clear off the table after a meal and ate our meals as a family at a table together. We weren't AFRAID OF ANYTHING, 'cept our parents. If you fell down you would just get back up. We challenged each other everywhere... If someone had a fight, that's what it was...a fight. Kids weren't afraid of fake guns when I grew up. Real guns were just a part of life and we respected them as well as our parents, our teachers, principal and God. We left our houses as soon as we could in the morning and right after school until supper time and then went back out to play until the street lights came on and you knew it was time to go home. We watched what we said around our elders because we knew If we DISRESPECTED any adult; there would be a price to pay. We had manners and respect; otherwise someone else's parents put you in your place. I would not trade anything for the childhood we had, for we had enough and we had love and all that made us the adults we are today beige wedding dress
