When I was 10 years old I went to Louisiana to visit my cousin who was the same age. I spent the entire week with him and we played with Legos, Transformers and the like. I am now a computer geek and he’s a jock, so we don’t have much in common, but I will always have that memory.
At the age of 5 or 6, being at my babysitters home and
swinging on the swingset and singing my heart out to
the tune of Little Willy on a perfect summer afternoon.
I felt so safe and cared for at that time – I still miss
that time in my life.
My family lives on the coast in Destin Florida, every year we’d make the 22 hour drive to see them in one day..we would always arrive very late at night..we would drive with the windows down, and you would smell the saltwater before you heard it, hear it before you saw it, and it would always be these rolling billows of black ink and white caps crashing against the shore with a soft cool breeze blowing in from the sea. From there, it was only 20 minutes till you saw grandmothers, aunts, and cousins who couldn’t wait to see you, hug you and then we would stay up till the sun rose, reconnecting and playing cards. Some of the most beautiful and formative times in my life. <3
Riding in the car with my brother, I’d asked him how we went from saber-tooth tigers to the regular tigers (like the ones we see in the zoo). He knew we were talking about evolution in school so he told me after the saber-tooth tigers there were snaggle-tooth tigers that had crooked teeth, and since there wasn’t modern dentistry like there is today they couldn’t catch their prey very well. So they died out quickly and evolved into tigers with straight teeth. It was only a tiny moment of my childhood, but the little punch line from that story still helps me smile through any tough situation.
My favorite childhood memory was during the Christmas of ’97 when I was 7 years old.
It was the last time I remember my whole family being together for the sole reason of just spending time with one another. There was no fighting or arguing, no yelling or screaming, no torn relationships.
It was when all the kids in my family were still kids, we were innocent and pure. And all the adults were mature enough to put their differences aside for a long time. I would trade a lot to get that family back, but it’s not going to happen.
My first kiss with him because it was pure bliss.
My happiest childhood memory?
Huh, can’t really remember.
Although, I can think of when I was in kindergarten I had this crush on this Jamie boy. And then I found out we were both in the same class and soccer team. 😀
Running to the point of flying.
One of my favourite memories happened around Christmas. My friends and I were all quite excited, though we hated the snow. We’d just been out for recess and were walking down the hall to our next class. My best friend had her arm looped through mine, when my guy friend came up and put his arm around me. Beside us jumped another one of my friends. I can’t remember what we were talking and laughing about, but I can remember smiling and laughing so hard I could cry.
I think it’s the people that made this so special.
My happiest memory was when I was five and I made my first friend in Kindergarten. It was special to me even though my friend moved a year later because A) before I met her, I thought I don’t need a friend B) because she showed me what friendship really meant
My earliest memory from when I was a baby. I was crawling in a small, sunny room in our old apartment on top of a Thomas the Tank Engine comforter on the floor. It was so clean and soft and it smelled fresh and airy. I looked outside at the clear blue sky and crawled towards my parents voices from the other room.
It’s special because it’s a memory from when things were so simple, carefree, and when I was pure and innocent.
Probably just playing weird, silly games as a kid. I remember raking leaves and pretending to be witches with my best friend. The rakes were our brooms. Simple silly things like that just make me smile.
I was 15 when my dad flew half way around the world just to surprise me for a father daughter dance.
Swinging in the backyard, at dusk, in the fall. I can still feel myself swinging, wearing long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. It is chilly and dark outside, but my body feels warm since I have been running around, even though my skin is icy. I look to my left and behind some evergreen trees, my I can see the silhouette of my mother among a golden glow emanating from the kitchen windows. I breathe in deeply, absorbing the cold air as I plummet down, then rise, then fall back down…humming “one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready and four…to…go.” I jump off of the swing and land on my feet with my hands in the dewy, sweat-smelling grass.
Those times when I would play stuffed toys, tea parties, Legos and anything playable, with my sister.
i don’t think i have one specific one but just a few from elementary school that i remember. i remember warm spring days when we had recess and playing outside with my best friends. that was always the best part of the day and i always looked forward to it. it was so simple but yet it made me so happy. i didn’t have any worries or concerns i was simply happy with being a kid.
Meeting my best friend.
It’s special because for the first time I felt like somebody really wanted my company.
That one moment led me to finding my first love, a bunch of true friends and the
happiest time of my life.
When things were OK.
just being a kid having fun and being present without worrying about anything in that moment
