    Default Childhood Memories

    What events stood out for you modders from your childhood that you still remember cleary till today? Mine:

    Was about 8 years old then, mom wanted to bake a cake so she took out a couple of eggs and placed them in a bowl. Went and play with the eggs before she cracked them and accidentally dropped one right at the moment she walked into the kitchen. She asked me what I did and I stupidly replied "I didn't do anything, it jumped out of the bowl".

    And the reply I got was "If you're going to lie, be a lil smarter"

    One of the most vivid childhood memories I have is my dad convincing me the passenger seat in his car was an ejector seat and if I wasn't good when I sat in the front he'd eject me.

    It worked.

    I really don't remember my childhood. For whatever reason I've either forgotten or blocked it. Oh well, more room for computers

    I like that first post, my childhood lies were not well constructed either. I actually have a few memories that go all the way back to being in a toddler's playpen, I don't know how old I was though. I've heard that memories from that age are highly uncommon, and I don't really know why I have them but I can remember being in the kiddie-cage and clawing at the netting on the sides in the hopes of escaping to go play on the shuffleboard basement floor. To this day, I have no idea why the basement had a shuffleboard tile arrangement, we never once played it.

    I have some spotty memories as far back as 5 or 6 years old. I remember toys I received like the Hot Wheels "Mongoose and Snake" race track set (Don "the Snake" Prudhomme and Tom "the Mongoose" McEwen), Planet of the Apes treehouse and action figures and the original VertiBird, before it was discontinued because it was actually, quite dangerous. It was the best flying (tethered) chopper toy in the world!!!

    My earilest childhood memory is from around the age of 4... (yes highly uncommon).

    I even checked this with my older sister and she confirmed it and was also surprised that I remember it.

    When I was about 4, we were living in Denver (near Lakeside Amusement Park), and that year the rains had caused the Platte river to flood. My sisters used to scare me that if I stepped one foot out the door, I would be swept away by the flooding river (which was no where near our house).

    I also remember our very first phone number from about the age of 5.

    Crimson: I had the Mongoose set too. Imagine enough Hot Wheels track to go from our second story apartment around the corner, down the stairs and all the way down the sidewalk to the end of the building. With 2 lanes. Now I have that much HO race car track.

    Jeez, I better stop before I write a novel.

    I can never really pick out anything specific. I remember some of our old houses, I remember some former pets, the closest thing to a specific instance that jumps up right now, was the time i rolled around on the carpet till i got tons of rug burn. Or maybe the time when i was really little and i thought the dogs dish would make a good meal. I can't visualize the moment, just remember that it happened.

    I never had a good memory though. I can't remember stuff that happened last year, let alone 12 years or more ago.

    I don't remember much.... only things which I wish I'd forget.

    I remember making candles with my parents when I was 4 or 5, we would take marbles and throw them onto the tile floor in the kitchen until they broke and then make candles with the pieces inside.
