    I think I’d choose now cause I actually like myself for the first time ever and of course because I am the pro cookie hunter now!

    Gosh… I would probably choose to have my mind, and my body at 19….lol does that count? Otherwise, Probably 36.

    If I could have the body I had at 17, right after I graduated boot camp (I’ll never see 120 again!), that would be sweet. But honestly, I’ll take my mind at 24 – I’d never want to have to cross the quarter of a century marker again. I swore I wasn’t going to celebrate any more birthdays, but nobody else obliged!

    I would want to be 5! Who wouldn’t want to be 5 again! You go to school to learn how to fingerpaint and sing, you have snacks and then take a nap. You get to play until your mom calls you in for dinner. Then you eat, take a nice warm bubble bath and get tucked into to bed and get to wake up in the morning and do it all over again! Man those were the days! 🙂

    I don’t think I can answer that right now. Ask me when I’m old, gray, and wrinkly(?) sitting in my rocking chair after I’ve lived most of my life. I think I would choose an age when my kids are independent, but I’m still young enough to do things without injury!!!

    Maybe I’ll stay right here…age 40–still young enough to feel good physically but with a little experience under my belt.

    I’m not sure. I suspect my best years were the ones I no longer remember – before age 2. I have vague memories of feeling like everyone loved me and I could do no wrong – probably because (a) I didn’t remember discipline for very long and (b) my sister hadn’t been born yet.

    Last night when I saw this question, I was planning to write: based on the general state of happiness I observe in my daughter, who is about to turn 2, I’d go with that age. However, today she is a miserable, crying snot machine (thanks to some bug or other), so maybe not.

    I didn’t like ages 2 – 20 because I never felt like I was good enough to meet my parents’ standards, or later, my peers’ standards. From 20 – 30, I was under a lot of stress wondering how the heck I was gonna pay for my education and still support myself and pay for my retirement. From 30-40, I learned a lot about happiness and taking care of myself, so that was a relatively good age for me. But, ideally I should have had my kids then, and I’m not sure that would have given me enough time to explore my own happiness. At 41 – exactly one year ago today – I took custody of my two daughers. They make me very happy, yet becoming a parent at my age was a surprisingly difficult adjustment, and I’m still not quite in balance yet. So I don’t know. I think life is always complicated, and if we look back on any time with fondness, it’s probably because we are forgetting some of the stressful things. But maybe that’s just me.

    24. I loved the age my son was,4, and I loved the idea I was closer to 20 than 30!!

  9. nikki says:

    Oh wait can I have my body from now?? I wouldn’t want my body from before I had Bailey b/c I was awkwardly skinny, I’m very happy with my body NOW and when I WAS 24 I was kinda chubby!!

  10. holeycheese says:

    I don’t know.. I think I didn’t reach that age yet. I hope around 30. I thought 23 was the age – until I got there. But no.

  11. mssc54 says:

    I think 35. I’de be smart enough to know that I’m not smart enough and still be in pretty good shape…. physically.

  12. DM says:

    50 (I LOVE my age) I know who I am, what I like, am still in shape, and don’t feel I have anything to prove.

  13. Jane says:

    I really like where I’m at right now but I agree with Sue. I think it will be a lot more calming when the kids are a little bit older. Not that I don’t love where they are now but lets face it, it’s a lot of work.
