If you could go back in time and relive any age of your life, for just one week, what age would you want to be?

Either 12 (last year of summer camp at the nature preserve - mud up to my neck each day catching frogs, turtles, and snakes) or 19 (at Bonnaroo '03 with a beautiful woman I once knew).

The question doesn't say you couldn't change anything.

Any one week period in my thirties. Nothing hurt and I had more hope & faith in America.

Yes. I even remember a few incidents from when I was 2.

I'd probably want to relive a week when Elias was a little puppy. However, life now is pretty awesome.

Honestly, I was a hot mess until about 25. I made huge, huge mistakes and took too many risks. Took me a long time to forgive myself for some of them. I came to realize that all those eff ups added up to who I am today,which isn't so bad ;) Yes, there are many regrets but I've learned to accept them

24-married and living it up, it was before kids- traveling with friends, big vacations, weekend getaways, parties. We had money for us! LOL

My husband allowed our oldest to tell lies about me. I kept quiet for her sakes. Now I'd not allow it. She hates me because I was bad to her. Believes her own lies.

Early 20's. It was probably the closest I'll come to partying like a rockstar.

26, I lived in Vegas- had real friends that loved me and would hang out all night long. I laughed a lot more and was single. No pressure with $$ and 9/11 hadn't happened yet.

6 is a good age. Tooth fairy, Santa, 3 recesses, everyone is a best friend...no major responsibilities, stressors or problems. My 20s were awesome too but 6 is better.

We had this question today at my Toastmasters meeting and I thought it was worth sharing with my followers.

I said I would go back to the age 26, when my daughter was born. I would tell myself to slow down and enjoy the moment.

When I was actually that age and when I was raising my children, I did not enjoy it. I was too concerned about getting through the day to day stuff.

But you appreciate it now, while your daughter is little. Unfortunately, I didn't.

I've learned to appreciate it recently, but for a while there I worked way to much. I have my wife metaphorically beating me over the head to thank for pulling me back to what really matters.

I would not change a thing from my childhood, nor would I want to relive it. Honestly? Exactly 3 years, 6 months and 11 days ago. The day my daughter was born. She is growing up to dang fast.
