Things Reminiscent of My Childhood
Running amok from sun up to sun down.
Teaching myself how to ride a bicycle. Many thanks to my neighbor, Paige, who let me borrow her bike.
My yellow, banana seat bicycle. “The Rascal.”
Spending summers with my beloved Grandma in San Francisco.
Japanese paper wallets – and stashing as much cash as I could “save” in them.
Pee Chee folders, and newsprint tablet paper.
Reading anything and everything.
Grape Bubble Yum, Pixie Stix, and Jolly Rancher Cherry Sticks!
Mrs. Corpus and her encouragement. Best & still my favorite teacher EVER!
Cherry Kool Aid and Grape Tang!
Saturday morning cartoons.
Summer vacation from June to September!
Being the fastest girl runner in my classes.
Junior Olympics, running track.
Wondering if I would ever grow tall enough to reach the pedals of a car so I can drive.
No worries. No cares. Just being a kid trying to grow up. My “problems” were so different that what kids have now. Enjoy your childhood. Be a kid. Don’t be in such a rush to grow up so fast!
