People Share What Always Brings Out Their Inner Child

_Memories and nostalgia are a powerful part of life. The smallest reminder can bring us all back to a time when everything felt simple. It could be anything from a song to a scent or an off the cuff remark that makes a relish a memory that awakens that inner child within us all. The person who remembers the things that made us feel whole. _

Redditor _\musseorgsky _asked the inhabitants of Reddit ****What is one thing that always brings out the inner kid in you? _Don't pretend that some of these suggestions don't bring your inner adolescent down memory lane. _

AH FALL...

Dry leaves on the ground in the fall. Gotta kick 'em around and make 'em rustle!

OH YES!!

Bagel Bites.

NOW YOU HAVE THE REVIVAL!

Pokemon games.

MAN'S BEST FRIEND.

Dogs. Anytime a dog is around, I'm all smiles and just want to play with them.

REMEMBER IT ALL!!

Bubbles. Lego and fairgrounds.

Yeah I know it's more than one. But I couldn't choose.

HOLD ME CLOSE...

Plushies. I can't help wanting to cuddle all the soft toys.

SWING HIGH...

Swings. It doesn't matter where I am or who I'm with, if I see swings, you can bet your butt my butt will be on that seat and in the air before you can say 'lickety-split.'

WE ALL NEED A SNOW DAY!

This might sounds weird, but being near kids. I was a camp counselor for a long time, and I kinda revert back to that more silly more outgoing persona when I'm interacting with children.

Also this is kinda dumb, but whenever it snows a lot during the night, in the back of my mind I think it might be a snow day. I mean, I'm an adult with office job but the possibility still gives a warm feeling.

KERMIT 2020!!

Tadpoles, there was a stream near my house and me and my brothers would go catch them, or at least spend hours trying to.KERM

HELLO MICHAEL MYERS...

Halloween.

SPLASH!!

Seeing a big puddle and purposely driving through it.

HO-HO-HO....

Christmas makes me so giddy, it also makes my 75 year old grandmother giddy too, we're like two toddlers on christmas, where as everyone else is sick of us.

A WINTER WONDERLAND...

Snow!

I made the worst "igloo" well into my twenties and gleefully played outside while my girlfriend (at the time) repeatedly told me it was dumb.

I can't not kick a pile of snow or prance through it when it's ankle deep or deeper.

Sometimes I'll just go throw myself down in it. I hate winter but playing in the snow is fun.

MICKEY AND MINNIE 4EVER!

Disneyland/world.

Miniature things; models, tilt-shift photography, etc.

POP POP POP!!

Bubblewrap!

HOW HIGH CAN YOU GO?!

Trampolines!!

THE CLASSICS...

Building blanket fortresses?

YOU'RE IT!

Laser Tag.

RIDE LIKE THE WIND!

I live in London and if the front seat on the top deck of the bus is free, you know where to find me!

SQUAREPANTS!!!

"Oooooooooo who lives in a pineapple under the sea?!"

ALL AROUND THE WORLD...

Rollercoasters, as long as they're long and exciting, I can't help but get giddy over rollercoasters.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
