Early Little Girl Memories

~ I had a little lamb named Mary Lou when I was a little girl.  I was four.  When we moved to town, my mom talked me into trading her for a turtle!  That's back when little turtles were considered pets and could be bought at the store.  Boy was I gullible.  ~grin~

~ The song Bye Bye Miss American Pie was popular when I was in first grade.  I listened to it on a small transistor radio in my bedroom after school.  I remember humming it at the dinner table. My father told me to stop.  I didn't have the self-control. I soon was humming it very very quietly to myself.  My father responded by sending me to bed without supper.  I was in tears.  My mommy later brought me a little spaghetti in my bed.  It was my favorite, I was hungry, and she had a soft mommy's heart.  I never hummed or sang at the table again.  I don't allow my children to do so either.  No one's missed a meal though.  ~smile~

~ When I was a little girl, I found my baby book.  My mother had written in it that at a certain age my eyes had changed from blue to brown.  I found this most remarkable!

~ My Grandpa and Grandma had airplanes.  He gave flying lessons.  I was in an airplane from the time I was a baby.  I thought everybody had an airplane just like a car.  Not getting my own airplane was one of the biggest disappointments when I grew up.

What little girl memories do you have?


Blessings,

  1. Great post Laura, isn't it funny when a certain song, food or smell triggers happy childhood memories. I love the smell of a cafeteria serving homemade bread. Our school lunch ladies were excellent cooks who made delicious from scratch meals for our entire school and community. I grew up in Alba just northwest of Carthage. Tina Turner singing Rollin on the River makes me feel like I am a teenager again! Jackie

  2. I know what you mean, especially about music. Just anything can set off a memory though. We've lived in Carthage since November of 1993. Did you move out of area?

  4. Great memories! I was scolded for bringing a book to the dinner table (but I didn't go without dinner). I read every Nancy Drew book that I could borrow or buy.

  5. Hi Carol,
    I loved Nancy Drew! I bought every one I could with my little allowance. It took weeks to save enough for a book.

  6. Hi Jes,

    You'd think we were rich. ~smile~ It was just a matter of priorities I guess. I don't think flying was as expensive back in the day.

    I'll be over in just a bit for a visit!
    Blessings,

  7. I have many childhood memories. I grew up on farm so many weave around the farm and farm life, such as the lambs that dad use to pop in the warming oven to keep them warm.

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
