FLASHBACK ALERT || childhood - do you remember?

Tuesday, February 07, 2017



Childhood was magical. we all know it.


But isn't it kinda sad that some things from your childhood have just been completely forgotten - I mean, they are in your brain somewhere obv...but it's like they have been forgotten. I was on Pinterest, (SHOCKER. actually, legit, I rarely get on shush) and saw this pin that struck a memory - and ohmygoodness I had completely forgotten about it. Like, that lost bit of childhood had come back. 

so I'm testing you all (ya know just wanna see how much you missed out on childhood, or if yours was as epic as mine) so, here we go. 

// 1. dragontales - YOU WATCHED THIS RIGHT??



// 2. VCR towers - okay tell me you did this

// 3. Webkinz. did you have one of these?



^^ legit i think i laughed way too hard at this for my own good

// 4. playing outside until 5:00 then coming in bc all your fav shows were on (cyberchase, fetch, wordgirl, etc.) oh. and tell me you remember this show


^^also. we all eat cookies like that, right?

// 5. the ground is lava and only the couches are safe. 'Nuf said.

// 6. also. playground gravel is water and the structure is a pirate ship. look out for sharks. or alligators.

// 7. remember the glow in the dark stars?



// 8. sliding down the stairs in a sleeping bag? c'mon. admit it. 

// 9. okay. these?

// 10. picking up the scooter + it swinging = death

// 11. barefeet on pavement also = death

// 12. edible candy necklaces were the coolest thing EVAH (plus whenever I see them it makes my think of my great grandpa <33)

// 13. did you watch this??



// 14. computer play = paint and solitaire 

// 15. you about cried when Andy left in toy story 3

// 16. the super loud intro to movies = "GET THE REMOTE. TURN IT DOWN"



// 17. old pics be like
Mom: "awww. You are so cute!"
Me: "MOM. YOU LET ME WEAR THAT??"

// 18. you had to master this 


// 19. being chosen by your siblings to ask mom and dad for a snack late at night be like


// 20. sliding around in the kitchen on your socks (but we still all do this right? shhh) 


so, there you go. 20 childhood memories. oh, and, btw -


so don't grow up. understand? Good. well, I'm off to Neverland *waves*

do you remember any of these?
what is your fav childhood memory?

  6. oh my goodness THIS POST IS MY CHILDHOOD. i actually still have one of those pencils and i lost a piece and was like *gasp* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I NEEEEEED THAT PIECE TO BE ABLE TO USE THE PENCIL
    now i am sad because it is buried in the bottom of my purse, never to be used again. *sigh*
    omj aaaalllllll the Arthur and Wordgirl and Cyberchase. aaallllll those things. AND THAT SHOW WITH THE PIG AND THE RED HEAD GIRL. O MY GOODNESS THAT SHOW IS MY CHILDHOOD.
    xD that part at the beginning we were all like "sshhhhhh THE BABY IS SLEEPING" and we'd all scramble for the remote. xD
    aalll the lava and jumping from couch to couch and sliding on socks and the playground.
    *grins* i still have supercalafragalisticecsbeallydocious (however you spell that stinkin' word) down and i could beat anyone at a Mar Poppins battle.
    swinging the scooter always equals death. and so does pavement. UGH AND GRAVEL. YES ALLLLLLL THE ROCKS IN YOUR FEET.
    AALLLL OF EVERYTHING. you know what we always asked our brother to do all the asking and he would do it willingly but then he turned 7 and he understood that we were using him. he won't do anything for us anymore. *glares*
    *waves* see you in Neverland! i'm spending the summer there. ;)

      Uhmm well in our house it's either NO ICE CREAM or ALLL the flavors. And OK, so my bros allergic to peanuts, so we have the buttetfingeR and bunny tracks for my parents and I, and then the pumpkins and chocolate are for my bros. It's really just bc we all like different stuff. But srsly we usually don't have this much ice cream.

  11. Aw, childhood. :") Number 5 sounds VERY familiar! ;D Also, paint was like my favorite thing ever. I may have done #8... I did slide\climb down the stairs on my stomach though- head first. ;P
    My childhood was playing make-believe with my siblings and cousins. Either we gave ourselves new names and played, or we had dolls and such. ;) Also exploring in the woods. Oh, and we'd play games outside in the dark when our cousins came, like "hope to see the ghost tonight". Well actually, I just played that this past summer. Maybe I'm still a kid, haha. ;P
    Childhood has so many wonderful memories! Why do kids always want to grow up so fast??

    Replies
    1. hahaa same. paint was like the funnest thing - I still use it to make maps for my books and such XD LOL. I DID THAT TOO OMW LOL. mostly I remember making cushion walls and ground at the bottom of the stairs with couch cushions and riding down in a sleeping bag. hahahaa
      SAAMEEE. Julia and I played those sort of things all the time. doll house people, legos, disney dolls (they used to have the best ones!), house, and college (lol so advanced).
      I dunno...I guess we thought it'd be better and more exciting..childhood was the best tho. XD

      Delete
    2. I still use paint occasionally too. ;)
      YES, make believe was pretty much my favorite thing to do! Very fond memories. XD

  14. DRAGONTALES THAT'S WHAT IT WAS CALLED. I have been literally searching for that show for over a year now, but Mom didn't know what I was talking about and I couldn't remember enough to google. Did you ever play the computer game that went along with it? I think it was an online thing...
    AND WEBKINZ Did you know that you can actually still log into your old account, even if you haven't gotten a new pet in years? You just don't have access to certain features. But yes. You can still play webkinz.
    SO MANY MEMORIES HERE

      Delete
    2. Yes, I think youngest was 'chosen', and most everything was done in age order. ;) Just kidding; there was an occasional backwards-age-order, so we should really be thinking of the middle siblings. :S
      and YES I HAD A WEBKINZ. Two, I think, acctually...A hippo and a pig. I can't even remember my pets' NAMES, so yeah, there's no way I'd remember my password, either. Talk about sad. LOL.

      Delete
    3. awww. you had a hippo?? that is just so cute like aww. ugh same tho. I had a tiger (no idea why lol) and I can't remember the name or anythin' xP I should try and figure it out tho..I think my dad may have written it down lol

We never watched tv shows.....oh! And I definitely did 12 and 14. :) I still like those candy necklaces. ;) And yes, I learned how to say the Mary Poppins word......I shan't attempt to spell it though. Lol.
