When I Grow Up I Wanna Be A Kid!

Anyone know the song I'm referencing in my title?  
No? It's off of a Mary-Kate & Ashley MOA movie. 
& that above sentence has made me look like a complete loser.. 

But it does come in handy that this week's Sunday Social has to do with when we were kids!  

Sunday Social
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?

The simplicity of everything.  Not having to worry about money.  

2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?

My Grandpa called me Meggy, most everyone in my Mom's family called me Megs.  As I grew up through junior high and high school I had a variety of nicknames ranging from Legs to Toilet Seat to Dipstick to TUPAC to anything my sister and I could come up with.  Legs was because my uncle thought that's what my brother called me once, and it stuck, Toilet Seat because Mady was Piddle, Dipstick and Mady was Dumbnut.  & TUPAC? TUPAC stood for Total Utter Piece of Crap ;) Yeah, my sister is so nice, but I call her Princess, so it works.  

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
FOUR SQUARE! I loved it!

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?

Shania Twain.  No really I did.  My younger cousin Emily & I were going to be her when we grew up :)

5. What was your favorite toy?

Anything Barney.  Seriously.  I was obsessed from 3 to 5.  Like had every movie, book, stuffed animal, everything.  Even went to a live concert.  Yeah I was that obsessed!

6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
Not my parents, but my Aunt & Uncle remind me of this all the time, it was when my Aunt was dating my Uncle Chris and he was laying on my Barney stuffed animal & I yanked it out from underneath him & bopped him on the head with it.  Nobody messed with my Barney!  


  1. Aww Barney, I loved that show but never had a Barney toy, now I feel like my childhood was totally deprived!

  2. Four square was so much fun. All of the "rules" we'd make up- lol. It all made sense to us back then :)

  3. Hi from Sunday Social! (:

    I watched Barney too when I was little. I had toys and clothes Barney themed. & I think I even had a Barney themed birthday party. Then I grew up and everybody was so mean to him :(

    Happy Sunday!
