We came to this world for a short period of time, right? We have to make sure we are getting optimum use of it. If we asked an adult, “what is your favorite and most memorable period of life” the answer will be their childhood. Now I’m 25 years old and I also missing being a child. Even I am grown up, my works are sometimes very childish. Don’t laugh right. I am serious. Kids these days are not like us. I mean they are very intelligent than we were at that age. However, one of my little brothers lives near my home. His name is Sisulu Ranumitha and he just turns to age 4.
Since we are staying home with this Covid-19 pandemic situation, he usually comes to my home every day. Since he is still in preschool, he always talking about the experience he gains and the crazy things done by him. Actually, we can not stop laughing sometimes by listing to those things.
Since I also have a lot of free time these days I can not miss the opportunity to go back to my childhood memories by staying time with him. He likes trains a lot. I taught him how to go like a train and he loves it. And he always asks me to show train videos. He went to Badulla by train recently. That’s his first time. That’s why he is very curious about it.
Have you ever played the snake board game? Those days I loved to play it with my brothers and sisters. I recently purchased this board game and we play this game quite often. When we go high in this game, if a snake bites us, it feels very sad. When I meet a ladder it feels very happy. The winner has to get 100 points to will by tossing the cube.
Another thing we like to do is “kam kam muru”. Since there are lots of kids around my home including my little brother like to do this regularly. I am the person who commands these kids and they have to do whatever thing I ask very fast. The first person who does the task right wins. Other ones punished by me. There are two methods for punishment, Hot water, and cold water. When the punishment is hot, it is very intensive. Cold means little punishment. Whenever happens it is very hard to stop this game after it started.
I am pretty sure you also remembered your childhood memories also by reading this article.
Thank you. See you again.
