February 19, 2012 - Remember What You Loved as a Kid?

We all have them - they might be good, they might be great, they might be bad or they might just be luke-warm - but we all have those memories from our childhood of certain moments or certain things that we'll just never forget.

Two of the many wonderful things I remember (because I had a pretty kick-ass childhood) entered my little ones life today. And for a moment, they took me back... um... 20-something years to my younger days. I could picture the house I lived in, my bedroom walls and dresser full of knick-knacks, my wild siblings that kept our home a house-full and my mom - always, always my mom.

I remember "Highlights."

My mom bought me the subscription year after year, and I was always excited to get the next issue. Getting your own mail as a kid is cool, and having that mail be full of pages and pages worth of stories and puzzles and games and everything else - ah... jackpot!

Now Georgia gets her own mail.

Then there's the tasteful memories. It's amazing what the taste buds prompt the mind to remember. Georgia's and my taste buds today savored a peanut butter and MARSHMALLOW CREME sandwich!!

Marshmallows are delicious enough, but whomever created the spreadable marshmallow - genius... and delicious.

A lunch like this won't grace my daughter's plate often, let's be honest, it's not that healthy... but whenever mommy needs a walk down memory lane...
