Tell a story from
your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and
how you felt…

I have a really good memory so there are a few moments that I remember so well and really clearly. So I have decided to mention a few…
My first crush was in pre-school. His name was Ryan.
He had tanned skin and curly brown hair. We used to play kissing catches in the playground and one day, we were all hiding underneath the old yellow tractor in the bottom of the garden, holding hands when I was caught by my granny who had come to collect me. I also remember being in a Red Nose Day advert with him, standing next to each other. *blush*
In Grade 2, I was a teacher’s pet and sat in the front of the classroom. I was also a very obedient child. During one lesson, my teacher asked me the time and I didn’t answer her. After a few more questions and some stern talking to, I continued to ignore her. She called my parents in the next day to discuss my strange behaviour and eventually I admitted that I couldn’t see the clock, I have been wearing glasses and contact lenses ever since…
I was 8 when I first found out about the Easter bunny. I walked into my room and saw my mom laying Easter eggs and gifts on my pillow for me to find when I came home. Not that sad though…
I can’t remember how old I was when I found out that there was no tooth fairy but I do remember finding a box of all my milk teeth (still stained with blood) in my moms jewellery store when I was about 10. It freaked me out!
I was 9 when I first found out there was no Father Christmas. We had all slept over at my uncle’s house on Christmas Eve, I woke up to go to the toilet and heard voices in the lounge. On investigation, I found all the adults in our family putting presents under the tree, drinking the milk and eating biscuits.
I was devastated.
What do you remember about your childhood?
