My parents are good people, but they were never particularly attuned to remembering details. I always wanted to know more about my childhood. I had a million questions, like what was my first word, or what other names did they consider for me? I have this memory of when my mom told me I could no longer have bottles…ouch. A lot of tears were shed that night. I don’t know how old I was, but I was crawling around and lugging my big stuffed rabbit by its ears with my favorite bear bottle in hand. (That’s bear bottle…not beer bottle.)
I’m always curious to learn about other people. For anyone who doesn’t mind sharing, I would love to learn more about you. What was your first word, or favorite food, or favorite toy or story? What was your first step like? Did you have any major injuries? Did your mom describe what it was like to be pregnant or give birth to you? Do you remember transitioning from a crib to a bed, or going to school for the first time? …etc.
Always greatly appreciated.
