Childhood Memories

Post  Hieronymus on Tue Dec 01, 2015 11:09 am

Nothing to do with football but hope this little story makes everyone feel a bit more warm and cheerful on a cold, wet and windy December morning, as it did me Smile

Was chatting to my daughter on Facebook just now, talking about Christmas and what she wants to get Leo, my grandson. He is only 2 and a half so I said he won't really remember so just get small things he can open himself, little cars etc. I said it is easy to go over the top when they are small and reminded her about the huge pink Barbie House we got her when she was 3,  that took about 3 hours for me and her dad to construct one fraught Christmas Eve! 

She replied "Yes, I remember it, but I played more wth the one you made from 4 cardboard boxes. You fitted it with carpets and curtains and everything. I loved that house." I had forgotten all about it but she never had! We kept that cardboard dolls house for years, much longer than the Barbie House that seemed to fall apart every time you touched it.

Just reminded me again that all the money in the world is not what matters most to children; it is the love and attention of their parents, if they are lucky enough to have it, that really counts, and what stays with them all their lives.  Smile

Thanks Les, sadly not spending Christmas with all my family, but my son is coming home so that will be nice. Off to Uganda on January 7th to see daughter and grandson so will have another Christmas then.
