Top Ten Childhood Memories

The Top Ten
1 Trying to balance the light switch between on and off

This used to really annoy me. I wish my parents had installed button switches; it would have made my childhood life much less stressful.

I thought I was the only one who did that lol

I totally did this!

I used to always do this. I always suceed

2 Making club houses using blankets

I did this as a kid, but my parents always used to put the chairs and blankets back

3 Restarting a video game when about to lose

Yeah, screw you boss

4 Watching two drops of rain roll down a window pretending it was a race

I thought I was the only one that did this. Guess not

I always did this, laugh out loud.

I thought I was the only one!

5 Saturday morning cartoon block

I used to watch Animaniacs every Saturday when I was in elementary school

6 Waiting behind the door to scare someone
7 Being afraid of the dark

Every night when I got scared of the dark I always played games in my head to take my mind off it.

Sometimes I was afraid of the dark... But not all the time.

8 Swallowing a fruit seed and being scared it would grow into a tree

There is a Chinese kid's song dedicated to this. Thanks, whoever created that song, for effing up my fruit eating habits during childhood (and every other Asian kid's as well...)

9 Going into the toy aisle in the supermarket

My grandma used to take me to Toys R Us when I was a kid. Too bad it went out of business :(

10 Closing the fridge extremely slowly to see when the lights went off

I did this a few times when I was 5 years old.

The Contenders
11 Drawing on the foggy windows

I used to do this and my dad would get mad at me

12 Not being able to wait to grow up

Then you wish you were a kid again.

13 Walking into a room, forgetting what you needed, walking out and then remembering
14 Thinking the moon followed you

Aw, I love this list!
During day trips with the family, I used to look up at the moon at the seaside and be amazed that it was still there when we got home! Oh the wonders of being a child.

15 Fearing the dentist

I used to hate going to the dentist when I was little due to my anxiety disorder. In fact, I remember when my mom thought I had a doctor's appointment once when I was 4 or 5 years old even though I had a dentist's appointment that day. I knew I had an appointment with the dentist that day but I kept my mouth shut because as much as I disliked seeing the doctor, it was still better than seeing the dentist to my young mind. Eventually, my mom remembered that I had to see the dentist that day and I was disappointed.

I also remember dreading going to the dentist for a filling on Wednesday, 10/27/2010 when I was 4 years old. I was sedated under general anesthesia and I don't remember what happened after the procedure, but I do remember what happened before the procedure from waking up that morning to being called into the room at the dentist.

I always thought I was going to get a cavity

I had that fear, especially when I brught diamond grills there.

I too had that fear

16 Riding the horse at the grocery store

Horses are allowed at grocery stores?

17 Smelling the scented markers
18 Trying to stay up on New Year's Eve

I tried staying up all night on Christmas 2011 to see Santa until I ended up falling asleep around 3 a.m. . I was disappointed when I woke up, but at least I got to open up some presents under my tree that day.

19 Losing your first baby tooth

It was Friday, 8/2/2013, the day before my 7th birthday and the last day of summer camp for me that year. I remember having my 1st baby tooth pulled out like it was just yesterday. When I went home that day, I watched The Powerpuff Girls on Boomerang, and I put the tooth under my bed that night. When I woke up the next day on my 7th birthday, I found $5 under my pillow.

20 Jelly shoes and silly bands

I had a few silly bandz until they all broke in July 2014.

21 Coming home at night

I love coming home from places at night. Coming home from places during the day is boring and lame in my opinion as a night owl.

22 Watching TV at night

I have a bunch of memories of this for some reason.

23 Inserting coins in a piggy bank
24 Eating all the candy you want without thinking about anything diabetes-related
