What are some of your favourite childhood memories?

- bike rallies in the small town I grew up in
- playing cricket with my dad
- taking my sheltie for a walk with my two cats following us along the residential streets
- day trips on horseback into the woods, onto the beach and into town, where we'd tie up our horses in my backyard, have lunch, and then trek back home

Spending Sundays with my whole Family at my Grandparents. I wonder how the heck they managed to get us all into their little war-time house. Those were the days...I miss my Tota (Grammy) and her Spaghetti and Flat Balls soooo much!!! I love you

I did not have a good child hood, so I would have to say my fondest childhood memory would be the day I turned 15 and moved out on my own.

Yorkie, Mousey, Epic, Tookey:

There were no people in your lives as children that you trusted who had an impact on you? Nothing positive at all? That's so sad. Sad I had a really fortunate childhood.

Interesting question. I personally did not trust anyone as a child and as an adult I realized what a smart kid I was. :lol:
I had a teacher I adored in 4-5 grades. He along with another teacher in grade 7 encouraged my writing. He impacted me in both good and bad ways. He was very kind and supportive to me and yet one of the lessons he taught me is how someone we admire can be very unfair and how having obvious favorites in that kind of setting is just 15 kinds of wrong.

Thats the short story of it.........you could make a novel of my life and probably become rich off of it.



Kept the story up for a bit, but edited it out as not something that should be out in the air right now as I got my lovely stalker at it again. But who ever read and wants to know more you know where to reach me lol

Okay, I was going to say I might have regretted posting this thread, but at least I'm learning things about the Kibble crowd. Tookey, I am glad you are able to start building happy memories NOW with your husband; Igloo, I think you'd agree that some of the best lessons come in realizing that the adults you trust as a child are indeed not infallible (sorry for the double negative if that drives people nuts). Epic, I am glad you were able to get out.

I am thankful everyday for the luck I have had regarding the people I was born to and the support lines I have met through my life. Your peeks into your lives only solidify my belief that "blood is thicker than water" is really only a truth in literal terms.

Yes. I've always found that expression odd.

Same here. Can't think of any either. And I was 16 instead of 15 when I got the boot.

Favourite childhood memories for me would be:

Summer vacation, get up early eat breakfast, spend the whole day outside in the nice sunshine weather, only going home temporarily to eat lunch and dinner, and coming back home for the night when it started to get dark outside.

Sitting on a blanket with friends in the summer, in my friends yard listening to Journey and Queen on her record player.

Cedar Point amusement park.

I must be getting old because any amusement park rides, even the marry-go-round makes me nauseous.

...Yorkshire pudding at my Nanny's house on Sunday nights. You knew it was the end of a week and the beginning of the next when Disney came on the t.v.

...My Nanny's love and encouragement

...My Grandfather's work ethic and overall goodness

...My parent's unending love for each other, a match made in heaven

...Just growing up with my 2 brothers and 2 sisters

...Music, sports, biking, exploring the forest, swimming, apple fights,

...Getting $2.00 for washing my Dad's golf clubs (A King's Ransom at the time!) And going to the local convenience store and buying candy, freezies, gum, etc...with the booty!

I could go on and on...I had the most fantastic childhood one could ever imagine which is why in some respects, I've never really left it and the result is the way I post...like a 10 year old kid! :lol:

I had a great middle class, suburban childhood. Favourite memories are the whole bed time ritual of washing face, brushing teeth. then we would choose stories to read as a family, and sing some songs before bed. it was very nice. Another fond memory: I had other little girls over for actual tea parties.

Of course, there are a few distinct bad memories as well, but the good by far outweighed the bad.

I try very hard to ensure I am making good memories for my kids. I am so conscious of the fact that everyhting I say or do is shaping the people they are becoming.
