    Bits and pieces.I choose to forget the bad.I cherish the great memories of the good stuff 🙂

  2. Lucy says:

    I think I remember it pretty well… but then again I sometimes question whether I REALLY remember things, or just remember stories that have been told over and over

    It’s all kind of hazy. I think I blocked a lot of it out. I do remember the good stuff though.

    I remember better than most, but it’s fading as I get older (I’m 43). I find it helpful to remember what a rotten kid I was as I raise my daughters. (OK, I wasn’t “that” rotten, but it’s nice to remember the way kids think – and don’t think.) On the other hand, there are some things I hope my kids won’t remember . . . though as they have gotten more verbal, they have surprised me with the amount they remember. I fully expect to be featured in “Mommy Dearest II” someday. Even if I get my act together in the near future.

    I remember things I really loved and the thought crosses my mind that I ought to do those things with my kids. And then my bones creak and I think, nah. Thank goodness kids are able to come up with their own ideas.

    I dont have a terrific memory of my childhood.Just like Lucy said,sometimes I wonder if it is really a memory or if its from the stories being told over and over that I remember.I did just have a new memory that popped into my mind just the other day,just a silly little thing but I remembered and was happy bout it!!Wish I had more:(

    I remember everything. It is scary, but my family ask me all the time, if they do not remember something anymore.

  7. Nikki says:

    Not very much, actually I could pretty much just copy Jozs’ answer! I have a few good memories, not enough as far as I am concerned but what do you do! The bad memories are mostly when I was very young, and are hit and miss.

    I remember mine fairly well. I think I’m lucky that I don’t have “bad” memories to want to forget. We got in trouble and stuff, but nothing I would choose to forget. Every Friday night we would go to the ‘farm’ for sauna night. It was my grandma and grandpa’s place with 2 houses and my aunt/uncle/cousins lived in the other house so we got to play with them every week and taking a sauna was the best part! We still, to this day, can go to the farm every Friday night. So, if none of you are busy tomorrow head on up and have some coffee and treats and experience a sauna!

    I do remember things from my childhood pretty clearly. We had ups and downs too but nothing was so horrible that I wanted to forget about it. Sometimes I’ll get almost a feeling of déjà vu about something and all of a sudden I’ll get a memory. I think it’s neat on most occasions.

    I have to say for years and years we drove by this house by our cabin. I now drive by it all the time since we live near it but I knew I’d seen a house like it before. I could see the inside and remember being there. Of course Paul thought I was nuts but a few years ago we were going through old pictures after an aunt died and I came across this house that was in Johnsonburg, Pa and it was a great aunt and uncles house and the last time I would have been there I couldn’t have been more than 5 or 6 and it was the exact house. I felt such relief. For YEARS I wondered where I’d seen or been in a house like that and all it took was an old pic.

    I remember it all too well. Wish I didn’t.

    I remember mine pretty well, I remember good and bad, but it is mostly good. Much of childhood was healing from my parents divorce, and my dad who I was so close to, but he was so distant and depressed that it made it hard growing up. But it also made me who I am, and for that I am grateful.
