Is it teething time for your little one?


There's nothing like putting on a pair of rose-coloured glasses and taking a stroll down memory lane.


As much as we love being mums, we have to admit, it was pretty amazing being a kid. 


A recent poll of 2,000 adults in the UK found that an astounding 67 percent wished they could be a child again.


However, that doesn't necessarily mean the poll's participants want to grow up in the current era of Snapchat and Facebook.



In fact, 58 percent said that it was better to be a kid 'back in the day' because they didn't need technology to entertain themselves, the Daily Express reports.


As far as what makes us feel little twinges of nostalgia, school holidays topped the list of what adults miss from childhood.


There was nothing like those days of freedom where it felt like you could do absolutely anything!


Hot summers were the second most missed thing about being a kid, according to the survey commissioned by Hollywood Bowl.



Who doesn't yearn for those sunny days filled with swimming and slowly melting ice cream?


Other things we pine for from childhood include everything from Enid Blyton books to having someone else wash our clothes (the dream).
