Next week’s sentence to finish: “This holiday season I will…”
One of my favorite childhood memories is…
I admit I remember a lot from when I a small child like both my girls ages.
One of my fondest memories from this time was when I was just about 3 years old.
My parents had won a cruise to Mexico via the Love Boat.
My dad worked for General Motors and this was truly an awesome win for him.
But again it was the Love Boat and definitely an adult vacation.
So, I was to stay home. My grandparents (my mom’s parents) were going to watch me.
And they did just that for a whole week.
During this week, I remember sharing my grandparents large bed with my grandmother at night and during the day, I had my grandmother’s full attention.
She baked with me everything you could imagine during those days including her famous corn bread that included real pieces of corn. I seriously can still taste it, because it was that good.
And my grandfather in the evenings when he would get home from work also showered me with his attention, including teaching me how to dance. My feet never touched the ground, because he totally let me step all over his feet. He also helped me brush my teeth. This was how I found out that my grandfather still didn’t have all his own teeth. See my grandfather was a tease and in his own fashion and brand of humor kind of pulled his partials out forgetting I was there. When I realized and questioned him, he told me that “everyone could take their teeth out”.
I was definitely perplexed and stood there in front of the mirror trying to take my teeth out.
My grandmother passed by and asked what I was trying to do.
I told her what my grandfather said. I vaguely remember her yelling and asking him why he would say that to me.
He just laughed his famous laugh (really he had a one of a kind, infectious type of laugh-still miss it until this day!).
I truly will always remember this and how much fun it was to be with them during this time.
Sometimes, I wish I could just rewind time and relive a few of the funnier, happier moments.
Both my grandparents are indeed long gone, but truly not forgotten. And this is one of so many wonderful memories I have of them and still do cherish that I have.
Now that I have shared my favorite childhood memory here, please share yours with me now!
