7 Things That Remind Me of Childhood...


When growing older, it always seems to be getting harder to recollect personal memories of one's childhood. The more it makes me happy, when I see something that reminds me strongly of my past. Then, my brain becomes sort of a mindmap, connecting images with each other, recreating things that seemed to be forgotten. And then I just smile in nostalgia. I really had to encourage myself to write these things down because our mind forgets too easily.
So here are 7 things that remind me of my childhood:

1. DaisiesI remember one time, my former best friend asked me: "Mimi, have you ever tried daisies?" I looked at her totally disgusted. She told me her parents would always put them into their salad (which was obviously a lie because I asked them some days later). But I couldn't resist, I really had to try it in total disbelief. And I tell you guys, it was really not bad. Yummy!
2. Hey Arnold: you know this old series, which have been aired on Super RTL? I do. And it was the best series ever. Even today it's still entertaining. Oh Arnold...
3. Rainbow Fish: I can't even remember the plot. But I do well remember the hardcover of the book with those silver fish scales. I loved to touch them with my hands.
4. The scrunch of shoes while walking: best sound ever. It reminds me of my father carrying me on his back, while I was falling asleep. It was always so comfortable.
5. Shamrocks: who doesn't know the legend that if someone finds a four-leaved shamrock will have luck until the end of lifetime? Well, I have never found one. :(
6. Animal scrunchies: This is because my parents always made me two pigtails with those big animal scrunchies with the rolling eyes.. they made me feel really really mad.
And finally
7.The Smurfs:: Sometimes I still listen to them and dance to their great techno sound through my whole room!


Now it's your turn. What reminds YOU of your childhood?

    and i love watching arnold too!!!! actually i hate him because he is ugly lol.

    things that remind me of my childhood are sailormoon(cartoon from japan--because i spent my childhood wishing that someday i could be a member of those heroes, and beach--because my parents used to take me to the beach on the weekend.

My mother put in between the pages of a book but I don't remember which one. I don't think it made me any more lucky. Books and teddy bears remind me of childhood. I keepp the teddy bears beside my bed because I would love to be young again and seeing them is comforting.
