What do you remember from your childhood?

Your family, friends, circumstances, places, aromas, food, school,......?

Is it something/someone that you like it very much?
Is it something that you really dislike it?
Is it something that defined your path in some way?

Please feel free to comment to each other.

One lovely thing, I do remember (around 3 yo) one of my teachers would ply the piano and I was wow lovely sounds. We never had a piano at home, we could not afford it.

I grew up in a Catholic home so each week we had to go to the “Catecismo” (church-school) to be prepared for first communion and I remember a Nun was going around the streets taking the children (walking) and after school, she did return us to our homes again. I did not enjoy it, it was boring for me so I would try to hide and not to go.

Hiya Life wave Most of my childhood memories are still quite vivid and for the most part, very happy memories. I'm afraid it would take up the entire thread to recount all those memories. laugh
Endless summer days and making sure I'm home when the streetlights come on. Getting my tongue stuck on the icy top of a fire hydrant in the dead of winter with a german shepard dog trying to hump me (about 7 or 8 yrs. old at the time). laugh The long walks with my dad on warm summer evenings to nowhere in particular...asking him millions of questions about everything including if there really is a man in the moon...his patience was second to none. laugh The baby bird that fell out of it's nest and my determination to help it survive which I did until my mom sat on it accidentally and kept the secret to herself until I was 18. So many memories and thanks for reminding me. hug

I recall getting my first pair of glasses at 11 months and getting whacked when I was 3 for peeing on my grandmothers grape vines. She made really great grape jelly.

As a little child:
I do remember ringing the Nun house’s bell and then running to hide.

11 months baby with glasses?
That should have been rather uncomfortable.
For the peeing, it was free fertilizer!

I have all happy memories of childhood.

Freedom - constantly outdoors, climbing trees, making dens in caves, roaming the fields, the neighbouring lads passing my brothers to ask me to go out to play with them (I was a tomboy!)

Going on caravan holidays to the beach, spending hours playing in the dunes.
Fishing for mackerel off the cliffs with my eldest brother.
One time we caught 25 of them. We decided to sell them around the caravan park. Somehow, my mackerel were the ones are the bottom of the bag, and 'his' ones sold first! confused

Lots of mischief...something called nicky, nicky nine doors where a group of us would go knock on a bunch of doors and then run and hide in a spot where we could peek to see their reaction. The nasty neighborhood kids would put dog or cat poop in a paper bag, put it on a doorstep, set it on fire, ring the doorbell and run like hell. laugh

Stubborn yes you look like it but shy, I do not think so.

I grew up with only brothers and I guess I was a tomboy girl too and it was natural to be and play around mostly boys, In fact, I think that even though I was smaller than them, had I had the fish I might have sold mine first as well.

I remember so much. Most of it, I'd happily be willing to do again.
The freedom of it all growing up in the countryside. Heading out to the woods with friends to make a ropeswing into the pond and building 'dens' to camp out in. The sound of Lego as it's moved about to find that elusive bit you need, but I don't miss the shout as a parent found it with their bare foot.

If I could have one wish, I'd wish I could go back to when I was about 2, and do it all again. I chose 2, as I don't want the soiling myself again laugh

I remember summer times at the lake with my cousins - (there are 36 of us), I was one of the youngest. Camp fire cookouts, sing alongs, climbing trees, telling ghost stories, playing stickball, and badminton, tennis, volleyball, and softball. Hide and seek, and jump rope.

That is a good idea, just in case I would choose 3 y.o.

What type of child were you?

Bogart_1960: moi?. i was a saint.!!. only kick out from 3 HS . teachers fault, of course.

I was expelled from High School only once but it was for a very good reason. The HS that I used to attend was a private one and some people could not afford it. So we the students did protest to the state go v and we did surrender the private HS until the governor listened to us and agreed to construct a big and more complete HS with labs and free of cost to everyone. The ones who were in the front line –like myself- were expelled but later we could finish HS in the brand new school. My father was a great support; he even let me borrow his car to guard the private school taken at night.

When I use to smoke, I thought that my taste buds where shot from smoking and that food wasn't tasting as good as it use to, due to tobacco use... Now that I don't smoke, some foods still don't taste as good. Ground beef is the major food that doesn't taste as good as I remember it, when I was a kid. Food additives along with 'who-knows-what, is in our foods now. Ah, I remember as a kid, the taste of ground beef was so good then. The meat didn't need any sauces, ketchup, mustard or anything to improve the flavor, well maybe a little salt, but that was all.

When food is prepared by someone else for us it could be tastier. Although, the beef production has changed to more profitable models and that includes feeding the cows with disgusting products like chicken manure while in the old days grass, hay and grains would have been the most used food for them.

Perhaps, adding to your beef some garlic and onion might taste better.
