Feeling Nostalgic


Flipping through the channels

To see what I could watch

Lo and behold some old cartoons

Still run during the day.

I immediately felt a wave of melancholy nostalgia

For “Little Einsteins” and “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”

But really for what they represented:

Simpler times

Frequent snuggles

A house filled with singing

I love each stage that my kids have and are going through

but I find myself during this cold winter, missing my little ones

and the warmth and light they gave.

  1. Nice structure, Aileen. You reflected on your own childhood and that of your kids for a nice balance. I know you still experience warmth and light from your kids – it just might look a little different.

  2. During these cold winger days nostalgia warms the heart. Things evolve as we get older. What was once there still is even though it might look a bit different.
