Oftentimes I find myself thinking back about things I remember from when I was young. The funny thing is that nine times out of ten if I run the memories by my parents or siblings, they don't think it happened or that it was a figment of my imagination. But if that were the case, why would we remember them so vividly, especially if they were just mundane experiences?
Well, here's my theory. Each of us is impacted differently by our experiences in life. Perhaps something that I held onto was more important to me than one of my siblings who doesn't remember the event happening. Likewise, my parents have four kids worth of memories plus all the years of memories that they didn't have children. So, it would make perfect sense that they wouldn't remember every little detail and event that their children do.
I'm not a big fan of being wrong, and these are memories that I've had for YEARS, not just some random thing that popped into my head and I was like, "oh, yeah, I think I remember something like that happening." No, these feel like genuine memories. So, in that line of thinking, I've decided to start sharing some of these memories with my readers. But, my point in all this is that they may or may not be disputed by the other parties involved. Of course I think they are valid, but chances are, I'm the only one. They will hereto be referred to as "Childhood Memories: ***** Edition."
