Childhood Memories

Tomboy is the very first word that comes to mind when I think of my childhood. I hate to say it, but I was one of the most mischievous children around during my primary school days. After a while, I was able to trade in my disobedient ways for a more productive activity: Football! eah I said it, football . This was the perfect sport for me at the time for three reasons: !. it took most of my energy, ". I could be as rough as I wanted without having to worry about hurting anyone, and #. I absolutely loved it! I was introduced to the football by my uncle, Fred. Although the team consisted of all boys it made me a little bit more comfortable that my cousin $eon was in the team with me. %y cousin $eon and I were the closest of cousins growing up. If he and I were ever together, there was bound to be trouble. &ur favourite place to hang out was always my 'randmother (etty)s house. %y grandmother (etty was always my favourite person and I was hers as well. I stayed at her house more than I stayed at my own. %y grandmother was born and raised in $ondon, so it was always fun and interesting to hear stories about her life growing up in the *outh +ast. ,olidays and celebrations were always a big deal for me as a child. %y favourites were: -hristmas of course, (on Fire night and .ancake /ay. -hristmas was my very favourite. +very -hristmas, me, my sister and my cousin would go shopping with my grandma to pick out everyone else) -hristmas gifts besides our own. 0e)d take them home and help wrap them, and then put them under the tree. All three of us would spend the night at grandmas on -hristmas +ve and leave mince pies, oranges and mulled vine on the dining room table for Father -hristmas. 0e were each allowed to un1wrap only one gift before the morning. There were always at least 23 gifts under the tree at night, wrapped and ready for all of the other kids. I can remember being so an4ious about my gifts, that I)d stay up all night from e4citement. In the morning, all of the other grandchildren would come over and we)d all have a great time as a family! I am truly grateful to have all of the great childhood memories that I have. Family is the number one contributor to the person that I have become today, and for that I am very thankful!
