My 3 boys and I

May 21, 2008

I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s

Filed under: My Thoughts — by my3boysandi @ 9:11 pm

I was inspired by Diane tonight

I remember putting buttercups under our chins and finding out whether we liked butter or not

I remember making mud pies underneath the swing

We had access to a holiday house and yes the creepy crawlies liked the outhouse

I LOVED our wild violet flower bed picking many a bunch over the years
Ive been thinking recently that Id like a flower bed like we had

I use to love riding my bike and often use to pretend it was a horse

We had a swing that my father made. I use to pretend I was flying through the sky on it.

I had a great imagination as a child too I was convinced for years that fairies lived in an apple tree in our backyard

We had lots of clover growing in our back yard at my childhood home

I use to LOVE day light saving where we too could go out outside again after 6pm dinner



  1. Good on you, Jen! I loved reading about your memories. And you even posted some pictures with yours. I thought about it, but by the time I got mine written I was too bushed to bother with Googling pictures to add to mine.

    Hope you’re having a good week. 🙂

    Love and hugs,

  5. Hey, I wasn’t the only one who pretended their were “flying” while swinging. How free we were then.

    *sigh* I miss being a kid.

  8. This post is like my childhood in a mirror. I too tested liking butter with buttercups, swung from a homemade swing, searched for 4-leaf clover, picked violets from under our apple tree in the backyard- a yard that was filled with fairies 🙂 Thanks for sharing your memories!

  10. I really love childhood memory posts. I really have a lot of great memories, too. It’s fun to think about them . . . They mold us into who we are.
