Hello my darlings.
I was actually quite happy with today’s prompt.
I absolutely love to think about past memories. Especially really cute or funny ones from when I was a child. Sometimes I just need the nostalgia from when I used to be so much younger. Not a care in the world.
Do you find yourself more stuck in the past, enjoying the present, or contemplating the future?
Can you summon what you believe to be your earliest memory?
Why do you think you remembered that of all things?
I have always told people that my earliest memory is the day of my 4th birthday.
The details are a little hazy. I am unable to remember if I had just woken up for the day or
if I had woken from a nap. Either way I remember stumbling into the kitchen where my mom
was making my birthday cake. It is somewhat vague here as well, I cannot recall exactly what cake
she was making, or if it was her first time making this specific cake. All I can say is that I pulled up
our wooden stool and asked if I could help.
As for the cake, I believe she was creating this fun "pool cake". With blue jell-o showing in the middle
as a pool, gummy bears in the pool as if they were swimming, and laying on the sides sun-bathing.
I have no idea why that specific memory has stuck with me, or if it's even real.
Seems very dream like.
I have included a picture of me around the age of 4 above. I cannot quite pinpoint my exact age there, but I do believe it was around that time.
I have also included a picture of a birthday party at an older age below, 9 this time, where my mom made me yet another pool cake!
It was my favorite birthday cake ever.
Thank you mom!
