    What was your best childhood memory and why?

    When we had snow days, my brother, who lived in the country would come spend the night with us so he could make it to work the next day.  He always brought Ding Dongs and Coca Cola.  As a little kid in a family with little money, it was a real treat.  Then listening to him and my mother talk religion and politics was interesting too.  Who needed tv???  Ha!! 

    Great question!  I have several other wonderful memories, but that is the first one to pop into my mind.  Our BIG family get-togethers were wonderful too. :-)

    My best childhood memory was spending time in the garden with my grandmother. We raked the leaves together and planted new crops each year. I was usually so busy with school and extracurricular activities, that the time spent with my grandmother was always refreshing.
    Now that my grandmother has passed away, I hold those memories even closer to my heart.

    I think this question had my life to passing before my eyes!  I am fortunate to have so many wonderful memories from my childhood.  I have a sister who is three years younger than I am and we had to share a bedroom.  Many of my memories are of simple everyday things that we did together.  One particularly silly one involves drinking as much fluid right before bedtime as we could, getting on our beds, then somehow  arching ourselves - stomaches in the air - and shaking ourselves back and forth as fast as we could to hear them slosh.   And we did this on more than one occasion.  Dopey, I know, but whenever I think of my now mature, successful, well-respected sister just shaking her tummy for all she was worth it makes me smile every time.

    I actually just posted a hub related to this half an hour ago, but it's not my best childhood memory.

    My favorite memory is actually playing Risk with my parents.  I have no idea how old I was, but I just suffered a devastating loss and let out the S-word loud and clear.  I actually still remember the looks on my parents' faces, and looking back with adult eyes, I laugh every time.  I think this might have been their "be careful what you say around your children" moment.

    I'm only a teen so my childhood isnt over. But i have two memories that i can't choose between. My first is when i was about 10 or 11 me, my brothers, and grandparents were at red lobsters in myrtle beach. We were all sitting at the table and it was my first time eating squid tentacles(calamari) and I could quite pronounce tentacles so I told my grandpa: "Grandpa I'm going to make you eat testicles" My family just about died laughing when I said it. It was so funny.
    And then the second thing that was my best childhood memory would have to be when me and my brother were outside and he kept calling m a "wingnut" and i ran into the house crying. But my family had laughed at me. It was funny once I thought about it. Hahaha smile

    I'd have to say that going to visit my grandmother's. Her house was always comforting with neighbors stopping by, the smell of pot roast and looking through endless black and white family photos. Everything was still decorated from the 50s and it was just like a whole different world. I loved it.
