I’m An 80’s Baby!

I’m an old school,
old soul kind of girl.
I believe in
the old fashioned
way of living.

I had to have manners and respect,
there was no room for disrespect.
If I was ever out of line,
I’d be disciplined by the adults
who associated with my family.

You see, I’m an 80’s baby!
I spent my days outside
playing – riding my bike
and rollerskating/rollerblading.
I couldn’t wait to play outside.
That’s where all of the kids were.

And I had to do my chores:
washing dishes, sweeping,
making my bed, folding laundry,
taking out the garbage
…just to name a few…
without whining and complaining.

I read lots of books
and enjoyed every minute of it.
V.C. Andrews was my favorite author.
Though, I still watched a lot of TV,
when permitted.

I didn’t have a cellphone or tablet.
Bedtime was at 8pm sharp.
I didn’t have to
deal with the distractions
plaguing our children today.
