Mcklinky Monday - Freedom

Today on the RHOK - they've got Freedom on the brain being right after 4th of July and all. But, they want to take a stroll down memory lane and ask - What was your 1st taste of freedom? When did you actually get it? Will you do things differently than your parents?

Well, living with my dad he wasn't very strict - I felt pretty free to roam around the neighborhood as a kid. We'd ride our bikes all over-played with the neighbor kids, and as a tween maybe even got to sneak a kiss with the neighbor boy ;)
Even outside our neighborhood I felt pretty free - if we were out at the cabin in the woods -shooting arrows or other such trouble with my cousin-etc. Even as I got older I still felt free to run around with my friends -but, did feel a bit stifled when it seemed like everyone had a car except me(In my best pouty teen voice ;) When I finally did get a car and especially when I got my own place is when I actually had freedom I suppose though.
And as far as would I do things differently? - Well, I already do - I'm pretty much the typical over-protective mom -though I try not to be sometimes. And I guess we'll see how it goes as the kids get older ?? :)
