How far back can you go?

How far can you go? Can you remember those special items, those things that impacted your life when you were a young child, teenager, even a young adult?  Let’s see how far can I go.

As a child my first memory is at a river with my mother, father, aunt, grandparents and my brother Omar.  I remember the current below me pushing me away from the crowd…I remember my Abuelo Cheo running towards me…

As a child I remember my mother fixing my hair like Princess Leia from Star Wars…and I hated it!

As a child I remember watching the Smurfs and the Flintstones. I remember receiving my first set of headphones and my first tape…Madonna.

As a teenager I remember reading comic books, I love Archie.

As a teenager I remember wearing jumpsuits and using a LOT of hairspray..Aqua Net to be more specific!

As a teenager I remember wearing Converse in three different colors.

As a teenager I remember I wore a white, lace glove and the black rubber bands…I was trying to look like Madonna.

As a teenager I was infatuated with Bon Jovi (still am). Wanted Dead or Alive was my anthem!

My first kiss was when I was in 7th grade…and it was a nasty experience!!!

When I was in high school, I remember eating cheese-dogs and icees. I remember wearing orange lipstick. 

When I was in high school I remember smoking my 1st cigarette…just to pretend being “cool”

When I was in high school, I remember skipping classes for no reason, just cause I hated home economics.

Life was so much simpler…no cellphones, no internet, no tech gadgets. We had to used our imagination, we were physically active therefore obesity was not a social issue.  Life was so much simpler yet filled with so much love and family togetherness..

When I think about those days, I so wish my kiddos could have enjoy a portion of how life was lived back then. But, we all know that is not our reality.  I love how I grew up, how little I had and how happy I was.

Here are some of the things I grew up with that, perhaps, my kids don’t even know what they are...
