Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

"Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are." This sense of wonder typified your childhood! You were an independent explorer as a child, always looking to conquer a new challenge and mark territory for yourself. Your dreams were full of images of outer space or the Amazonian rain forest, and you loved the idea of growing up to discover new frontiers. A brave soul, a strong spirit, and a deep sense of ambition armed you well for life.

You Are My Sunshine

You Are My Sunshine

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine." Not only were you the warm sun that your parents basked in, they were yours. Your childhood was full of warmth and love. This song evokes memories of being tucked in at night, and drifting off to sleep feeling cherished. You used to wake up to the smell of breakfast cooking in the kitchen, and even today the smell of pancakes makes you think of home.

Puff The Magic Dragon

Puff The Magic Dragon

"Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea, And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honali, Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff" Just like the intimate connection that Jackie and Puff shared in the song, your childhood was full of intimacy and love. You were, and continue to be, a loving giver with a strong emotional connection to your family and friends. You long to give and receive affection, whether it be through the simplest of hugs to the grandest of gestures. You have always been highly connected to those around you which is why you have a strong sense of belonging wherever you go.

5 Little Monkeys

5 Little Monkeys

"5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, One fell off and bumped his head." Not unlike these hyperactive little mammals, you were a crazy fun kid. Bedtime was the worst as a kid, because there were always more games to play and more fun to be had. You were particularly hyperactive, and loved to run and play indoors and out. Although you have calmed down considerably with time, you are still faster-paced and more excitable than any of your friends, which is why you are still the life of any party and a joy to have around always.

If You're Happy And You Know It

If You're Happy And You Know It

"If you're happy and you know it clap your hands." Like the characters in this song, you were a very happy child, who didn't need much to stay bright and shiny. Life was so simple as a child, you were self-sufficient, content and never had a care in the world. You are part of a very small percentage of the population that didn't need excessive coddling, you made your own lunch, organized your room, and entertained yourself on Sunday mornings. You were a parents dream, and these skills have served you well through life.

Do Your Ears Hang Low

Do Your Ears Hang Low

The words, "Do your ears hang low..." probably still sends you into a fit of laughter. That's because you were and continue to be a silly, quirky, and funny kid. Your sense of humor developed quickly from a young age and always made you a fun and popular kid with adults and peers. Today you are still the class clown, whether at the office or when striking up a conversation with the server at your local eatery. Never lose that charming fun side!
