    I remember one Halloween when my mother, brother, sister, and I were going door to door as usual getting candy. We came across this one house that was so creepy and scary looking and there was a woman dressed as a witch sitting on the porch.

    My brother and I were afraid to go to that house. My mother urged us to go and get that candy, seeing how scared we were. My sister, however, just walked up on the porch, got her candy then came back to sidewalk. My brother and I finally got up enough courage (after urging of our annoyed mother) and walked up to the porch, crying the whole time.

    The woman was very scary. She had fangs dripping with fake blood and a cold stare as she dropped some candy in our bags. We couldn't get away from that place fast enough all the while crying our little eyes out. Looking back on it now I can laugh and think to myself "that whole situation was so messed up".

    I'm actually still 11 but I got a few funny things smile.

    When I was 7 or 8 I think, me and my besties had a playdate. We really wanted to make a treehouse out of my bunk bed and there was nothing left to use but curtains! Luckily, there were some green curtains in my room ( to make it look like leaves you know ? ), not so luckily that they were only curtains left in the entire house! So I was all " Hey girls! I've got an idea! I'll climb up and dispatch the curtains and while you catch it, try not to let it hit you.".

    So I went and put myself over that wooden guardrail and dispatched those needed curtains. But after that, I realized something: I was stuck over the guardrail. So one of my besties, Anika, said" Don't worry Soph! Jump, trust me! ". Well, we had an extra bed for guests underneath my bunker ( you know that kind of bunk that you could put a bed over the top and the bottom was empty? ) and because it was too long to fit horizontally underneath, we put it in vertically.

    So, yup, you guessed it, the other half of the bed was sticking out from underneath. And I only had seconds to spare before that guardrail fell over. But for the sake of my best friends, I told them " Cover that end with pillows please! ". So sure, they did it. And boy was I scared when I jumped that 5 feet. And I managed not to scream ( because if I screamed my parents would find out )! And I landed ' Thump-flop!' on the pillow covered matress .

    After that I said " That was really fun! "! So we spent 37% of the remaining playdate time jumping off from the bunk ledge. LOL!!!

    Classic moment: Dad had a sweet tooth so he piled all four of us kids in the car and took us to the grocery store. Of course we each had our own idea of what would satisfy a craving for sweets. Dad stayed calm. Two gallons of milk and four packages of oreo cookies later, he taught us to make "Cookie Mush." I apologize if anyone has copyrighted that dessert title, but it was my dad's in 1968.
    Cookie Mush
    One tall glass
    Fill the tall glass with as many oreo cookies as you can fit in it
    Pour cold mild over the cookies till the glass is full
    Using a spoon taller than the glass, poke, mash and crush the cookies into submission and enjoy.

    Well childhood is all about mischievious activities,getting scolded but again doing the same thing just for fun and pleasure.
    I remember when I was in class 9th we  a group of 4 girls used to play truth and dare and one day while playing the game i was given a dare to steal my english teacher's note from where she used to give us notes.
    I accepted the dare and went to her desk where she used to keep her stuffs. My mission was accomplished. The moment I turned my head to leave from the class I saw her staring me with astonishment  . Since I was a good student and one of her favourite. She realised  that it was just a game and accepted to forgive me after so many reasons and justifying myself. "NEVER DO THAT AGAIN" she said and asked me to leave. It was a horrible and terrible experience I had but now I laugh whenever I remember this incident!!

    yeah I do remember one such incident which currently seems very funny but when it had happened I was scared beyond words. So I was just a 10 year old back then and had come to stay with my grandparents for vacation. Just after a few days we got the news that my uncle – father’s brother – had become proud parent. My parents had gone out of country so they couldn’t come. So me and my grandparents decided to visit them and I was super excited to meet my little cousin. I even got toys for him and put them in my bag so that I can present him when I meet him. Anyway so we boarded the bus and my grandfather asked me if I wanted to pee or if I was thirsty. It was just a few minutes before the bus had to move and since it had to be a long journey so he thought it would be better if I relieve myself rather than troubling him later. I instantly wanted to go to pee and both of us left my grandmother there in the bus and we left. So when I came back I saw the bus was about to move and just then out of excitement I left my grandfather’s hand and started running towards the bus. I caught the bus and it started to move. Meanwhile I reached the seat where my grandmother was sitting and I saw no one was there. Just then the bus left the terminal and was on highway and I realized that I am on wrong bus. I started crying and the bus driver started shouting at me for being so stupid but then he calmed down and made a U turn towards the terminal. As soon as I got down from the bus I saw my grandparents standing there and my grandmother crying like crazy. It was really a horrific experience but now when I look back I laugh like anything.

    Oh dear, there are way too many!  I seem to be replaying my childhoodaughter memories a fair amount recently.

    A bit of a background, very naive and sheltered child who was awfully clumsy- an amusing combo in itself.

    I will say two as they both involve my mum, parents do have a touching habit to embarrass their children no matter what the respective ages are!! 

    Had a Virgin mobile phone at about 14, first time I topped it up I shyly asked "can I have a top up card for a virgin' everyone within earshot peed themselves with laughter and I went scarlet!  Mum brings that one out a-lot!

    Another, cousin borrowed my sleeping bag for his camping trip at school called The Duke of Edinburgh.  He returned it....all fine...all well.  But, mum!  She said that he and his friends found a pair of my knickers and made them into a flag with a stick.  Flaming woman never told me it was not true til six years later.  That was some awkwardness when passing cousin in the school corridor!

    Hello, I think we make the best memories in our childhood time. Childhood is that stage of our life when we can do what we want. We are just free like an air in our childhood. I also remember many funny incidents of my childhood. When I was a child, I used to be very naughty. One boy always sits in front of me because we were told to sit roll number wise. He was very handsome. When he was studying seriously in the class, I wrote “I am mad” on his shirt’s backside without letting him know what I did. When his friends saw his backside they started making fun of him. They started calling him mad. We enjoyed a lot and laughed at him daily. This was our daily routine. At the last, I confessed him I wrote that and I am so sorry for my behavior. He said, “Why you are saying sorry now. Now, what’s the use of your sorry?” I felt very guilty of my behavior. But, that was the funniest incident of my childhood.

    Well I was kind of a little brat so it's hard to pick just one!  I remember really struggling to be a good little girl but somehow never quite managing it.  I was always in trouble about something.  I remember once when I was around six or seven years old.  We had this huge garden that took up one whole side of our yard.  I always helped my dad plant it, it was our "thing".  As a kid I had a hard time waiting for the vegetables to sprout up, I always wanted to pull the carrots and onions up before they were ready.  There was this one huge carrot with a fluffy green top that I kept eyeing.  I wanted to pull that thing so badly!  But I also wanted to be "good" so I fought with my conscience for about two days before finally giving in to temptation.  I waited until my parents were inside and then I crept out to the garden and gave that sucker a good yank!  A big beautiful, bright orange carrot popped out, it was gorgeous!  But my satisfaction quickly turned to shame.  I had been "bad" again.  Bravely, I told myself that the best thing to do was to go immediately to my parents and "confess" my sin.  I solemnly walked into the house and standing with that carrot dripping dirt behind my back I told my parents what I'd done, and that I knew it was wrong and I was ready for my punishment.  I have to say I felt quite noble and very saint like at that moment.  Until my parents both started laughing at me!  I got so angry, here I was trying to be a good little girl and they thought it was funny!  After that I kind of gave up and embraced by naughtiness.  smile

    We were in school in class VII and just before the bell rang for classes to commence after break we entered our classroom and interchanged the bags of our class fellows.
    What happened after that is a story we never forget. There was a big confusion and cuous and practically a stampede when everyone trying to find out where their bags are.It was a big fun but somehow we were caught and were taken to the principal room and got a lot of bangings.

    Ooh, there are loads. lol

    When I was a little boy I wanted to go to the Bookmaker's betting shop with my Dad. I thought it was so unfair because I wanted to get away from watching the boring horses on Saturday TV Grandstand with my Nan and Grandfather. I thought it was wrong not to allow little boys into the betting shop. After all, at school, we were always saying, "want a bet on it?" It was common among us arguing little schoolboys.

    My Nan and Grandfather started to laugh as I tried to explain how the horses on TV were rather boring and I would be far more useful at the betting shop armed with my quick wit and, "want a bet on it?" catchphrase. I wanted to sit around tables and talk about things. And when one person said such a talked about thing was not so, I could say, "Want a bet on it?" This is how I thought betting shops worked.

    I can remember my Nan and Grandfather laughing away and egging me on. I kept telling them that I was always saying 'want a bet on it.' at school. I was good at it. They kept on telling me that they believed me. I just could not fathom out why, as my Dad's parents, they did not order him to take me.

    I must have been around 9 years old at the time and decided to put a plug on a bedside lamp which I had found in a cupboard. I happily unscrewed the plug with a knife, put both the positive and the negative wires into the same slot, closed it up again and plugged it into the wall socket. It blew the electricity in the whole house.

    Whole family trapped in VW Bug in driveway with a rowboat upside down over roof of car for hours.

    The plan was to take the boat to a irrigation pond and see if we could paddle the boat around the pond. My dad put old lumber on the roof of the small car, then put the boat on it as we squeezed into the car. He instructed us to all reach out the window and hold the boat and help tie the boat down. When we started up the vehicle and put it into gear, the boat shifted and had us trapped in the car. We were there for hours. Rocking the car, screaming.

    Then it happened....  I told a pollock joke. My dads nostrils flared, his eyes got huge, and he GLARED! The boat fit so tight over the car there wasn't enough room to put even a finger out to lift it up.  It was my 3 year old brother that rescued us. He was able to get his hand out the window and push on the boat.

    Well when I look back on it now, I'm like "what the heck were you thinking?"  lol

    Growing up, there was this steep hill that we would use for sled riding in the winter time.

    I was such a tomboy growing up, if the boys could do things like climb trees and so forth, I could do it too.

    Well, one summer day, we had the crazy idea to get into a shopping cart and ride it down the hill.

    That's all fine and good until.....  I hit the hole that we forgot about in the middle of the hill!!

    I went flying....  luckily I landed on earth, but no injuries...

    That was fun!!!

    I was nine-years old when I decided to cook for the first time. I baked cornbread in an iron skillet and boiled chicken in an iron pot. I tried to lift the heavy pot off the eye and the bottom bumped the skillet of bread just out of the oven. The chicken broth spilled into the hot skillet of bread and began bubbling because of the hot iron. I was disappointed as I looked at the soggy bread. I tasted it and “Voila!” Cornbread dressing! I was so proud.

    The funniest thing I remember is something that struck the fear of God in me. I was afraid of puddles! I saw the sky’s reflection in puddles and the tops of trees, and I really thought I was going to fall in the sky if I stepped in the puddle. They would take my breath away and make me dizzy. This might explain my fear of heights now. And I can’t even imagine what a rainy day must have been like for me!
    Ann Leung (kittyjj) says

    My father’s skin color was very light which made the hair on his toes stand out. During summer, my father would nap in the living room with his bare feet. I would sneak up and pick his hair on his big toes. At first he thought it was mosquito attacking him and tried to fan it off. But then after awhile he found out it was me (I was about 5 at that time), he put on his socks.
