[rebelmouse-image 18357519 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

_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. _

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!

[rebelmouse-image 18979546 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!!

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...

[rebelmouse-image 18979551 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD...

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

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
