If I were a baby again…


This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 4; the fourth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

As one more year draws to a close, it is an appropriate time to sit back and reflect…what would it be like to be a baby again?

  • to have nice, soft baby skin again
  • to have absolute strangers break into a grin when they see you
  • to have a potbelly and thunder thighs and yet to be called “cutie pie”
  • to have only two responsibilities in life – eating and pooping
  • to have your entire life in front of you with the chance to relive it all over again

but then, I wouldn’t be able:

  • to drive
  • to watch movies of my choice
  • to travel or do adult stuff on my own
  • to do what I want when I want
  • to do so many other things that this list would be just too long

Hmm…forget about being a baby, could I just be 20 all over again??? it seems like the ideal age- all the advantages of youth with all the freedom of maturity!

What do you think? which age would you like to go back to?

    There you go!!! Good to see you particpating in this marathon! I am yet to do it…dunno when I shall participate!

  • being a baby is “ideal condition” for me.. 😛 😀

  • I would love to go back being a kid again! But I feel that there are pros and cons at every age.

  • i would want to go back to by 10 to 15 years – in the high school. That’s when/where i had the most fun

    • wow…a lot of people here want to go back to high-school! funt times, huh…what about preparing for the boards??

  • yeah 20 is a good age to be in 🙂 wish I could rewind time

  • hi..

    Nice post…..simple, practical and thoughtful.

    I will definitely go back to my age of schooling because
    I wanted to change my school,
    I wanted to learn flying kites and playing marbles
    and more to write….

    • Oh no…Mahesh, school is one horror time for me. Never want to revisit that time again!

  • 18 is definitely good age to be.. 🙂 Right amount of freedom and right amount non responsibility (is that the right word to use 🙂 )

    Good to see you at the Blog-a-ton 4 …. Ekdum right 20-21 is the right time to go back to …. best age 😀

  • Meandered in from Blog-a-ton. Sorry to see your entry was late and not eligible for voting…

    20 is something I would not want to be ! 1/2 way done with Engg, not sure about the job market, Dad is about to retire and you are the eldest et al ; maybe 22 as that’s when all clicked but if I could, I would want to be 10-12. But if wishes could be horses..

    • No problem, Madhu…I was beyond late in the submission. Hopefully, next time, I will not procrastinate quite so much 🙂

      Thanks for visiting and commenting 🙂

  • 18 🙂 has been the best so far..
