I loved visiting my grandma’s apartment, with its fringed window shades and faint smell of eucalyptus.
Her desk drawers, lined in green felt, spilled over with card decks, cocktail napkins, and golf tees.
Another fond memory is the end-of-year concert held at the kindergarten.
I was chosen to play the role of Jack in the play, 'Jack and the Beanstalk', and I became a celebrity overnight receiving lots of compliments for my performance.
I became happy again and actually looked forward to leaving the house each morning.
I still remember those days when I was learning to ride a bicycle.[tags: Family, Grandparent, Mother, Father] - Childhood memories are often replaced from the imagination.That is, recent memories replace events that transpired during our childhood; these memories are considered fresh by comparison. I was so upset that I cried and cried for nearly an hour in spite of my parents' attempts at comforting me.Finally, I quietened down when I was given ice-cream and chocolates. My days were happy ones before I started going to school, as I had good neighbours to play with from morning till evening.I now realise what a wonderful childhood I have had and at times wish I could relive those days. It is, however, a period of life that passes soon and once gone it never comes back. When I try to recollect the days of childhood, a host of memories rises up before mc. My aunty was getting married and therefore leaving us. Memories of childhood are the fountain of vivacity and liveliness of spirit.I cried and wanted my mother around, much to my teacher's displeasure.As the days went by, however, I made friends easily in class and found company. There are the some of the recollections that rush up to my mind when I think of my childhood.- One of my earliest childhood memories was my maternal relatives, my mother, and I embarking on the process of leaving our homeland; waiting for hours in lines that never seemed to conclude everytime we go to the American embassy, hiding from the check ups and formidable butt shots that my older cousins told me about, and experiencing the thrilling first flight during the typhoon season.
