Making an Epic Fort & 11 Other Things That Prove You Had a Great Childhood

12 Things That Prove You Had a Great Childhood via Babble.comWhen I think back about my childhood, I always seem to have a smile on my face. I have a lot of great memories of growing up with my brothers and sister and all the fun things we used to do.

We made up games like fight in the night and cow poop (don’t ask) and my parents always seemed to have something fun in store for us. We used our imagination a lot and it served us quite well.

We also did a lot of the typical kid things like building forts, getting dirty in the mud after a big rainstorm and some other typical kid things that we don’t often revisit when we’re old and have kids of our own.

I want my kids to think back when they are older and realize just how much fun it was to be a kid and I want them to experience some of the awesome that contributed to my childhood being as great at it was.
