Childhood:come back I miss you!

Dear childhood,
what ever happened to you? You used to be so full of life and vitality now you seem to have given up. Can't you compete with the computer games? Or is it that you don't want to? Have the kids given up on you? Or have you given up on them? A few things I miss about you are:

Making cubby houses out of whatever you could find-tables, chairs, blankets etc
Running through the sprinkler (damn those water restrictions!)
Playing knock and run (the greatest neighbourhood game ever invented!)
Playing elastics (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales. Inside, outside, inside on!)
Being able to say inappropriate things and getting away with it 'cause your just a kid
Climbing trees
Having the freedom to be a kid and not be watched constantly by parents

I wish you'd come back and show the kids of today what they're missing out on, 'cause you really used to know how to have fun.
