So true. This is what made me think of the blanket fort and the cardboard box igloo. While I was writing I was like, Why don’t I do thins anymore? but I think as with anything, it takes having something new, something different for me to look back and realize what I had.

It’s kind of like the “every kid syndrome.” Every kid is always in a rush to grow up and be an adult. I remember wanting it so badly and now that I’m an adult I have no idea what I was thinking.
