Day 4 of the 31 Day Challenge:
My Best Childhood Memory.
I have so many good childhood memories. Most involve my grandma in some way. Some of them include:
Playing Barbies outside my grandma's house and a neighborhood dog usually came up and stole one. I would find it later with a hand missing or a foot chewed on. I would still play with it. In fact, I still have a lot of them.
Me and my cousins and brother would play business in my grandma's building behind her house. It was usually either store or business and because I was the oldest (and I am extremely bossy) I always picked the game and I was always the boss...haha
I remember playing paper dolls under my grandma's table during city council meetings (my grandma was treasurer). Sometimes I could get the secretary's son to play with me. My grandma would get me a new paper doll book every time just to make sure I had plenty to entertain me.
On my mom's side, I remember getting together with a huge amount of cousins at Thanksgiving and Christmas and playing football in the front yard of whatever house we were at. I also remember most of us pairing off at the end of the night and staying the night at someone else's house.
I remember when I was 9 going down the steepest hill in town on a bicycle. I remember crashing half way down right in front of the boy I liked at the time's house. His best friend gave me an ice pack and offered to share half of his pb & j with me.
My favorite birthday party was my 9th birthday. I had 12 girls spend the night and we stair-sledded on a mattress, had a fashion show, a singing contest and the next day we went skating where I was joined by about 6 or 7 more kids. One of my friends fractured her leg before we even got in the skating rink. She fell outside in a pothole.
I have so many others including family vacations in the car and basically just tormenting my little brother (until he got 6 inches taller than me). I actually had a pretty good middle school/teenage experience too.
