Truthful Tuesday: A Do-Over?

Di is handling Truthful Tuesday while Melanie gets better. Her question today:

Would you like to be a child growing up in today’s world?

This was my first impression. It’s bad enough being an adult these days. I wouldn’t sic this world on me as a child.

Then I got to thinking about it.

From The Sandlot, one of the greatest baseball movies of all time

I would, however, sic me on this world.

A do-over would be kind of nice, even with the world as it is today. Of course, I wouldn’t start off knowing the stuff I know today. And I wouldn’t know who my parents would be, or where I’d be living, or where I’d be going to school, or whether I’d have it easier or harder than I did the first time around.

But that’s part of the fun, isn’t it?

Tally-ho and away we go!
See you next week with a brand new show!

    1. The way I read the question, it was asking if, given a chance be a kid in this day and age, you would do it. I’d do it either way, whether starting today or going back almost 67 years.


  1. I agonize with pushing my kids for more grandkids. I want them and the only chance we have is to put good people into the world. But my son isn’t even married and maybe never going to be mature enough. And my daughter had a very risky pregnancy, so don’t want to push her and have her die. That would be awful. I have just one grandchild. He’s great, but I want more of them. I do agonize about what this world will be like in another ten years. I’d love to do it all again knowing what I know now. But wouldn’t want to give up my kids….
