Sunday Samplings: Childhood Unmemories

Have you ever had someone tell you something about yourself when you were really young and you just can't remember it? I'm not talking about before we were three or four. But things you just don't remember after you are supposed to, things that someone who experienced the memories with you talks about them and you just have no clue!

Apparently I walked to Kindergarten with another girl in my neighborhood everyday and I have absolutely no recollection of it! I remember her bringing it up when we were teenagers and I had no clue what she was talking about. Somehow I had blocked it out! But I don't think it was a traumatic experience; she was really nice. I guess it's just one of those things, so I can't even blame old age on that one!


  1. I have the WORST memory from any age, it's pretty sad! Even now, I feel horrible when I can't remeber simple things like names or stuff happening in peoples lives that I knew about, but forgot. I often think I need to have my brain checked, but for what good would that do. Sometimes I try to remeber what it was like when Jer & I were dating 10 years ago, and nothing much comes to mind, just major stuff like 1st kiss and getting engaged. Lame!

  2. Yes, there are a TON of those...I too have a terrible memory.

  3. YES -- I have those white-outs! But I am a White personality, are you? That's why I love my college journals. So many things and people I would never would have remembered. I wished I had started journals at 16!

    If you don't write it never happened.

  4. I don't remember anything either so that is normal the cool part is that you left a positive mark on that girls life. Remember that.

  5. I'm just wondering which neighbor!!


It really makes my day when comments are left since I know who is stopping by and checking in and I feel so loved and you will be my best friend for life!
