This past weekend we went up to see my mamacita to help her start packing up her apartment to move to another one. She needed a lot of help since not only does she have her own stuff, but she still has all of our crap from when we were kids that we’ve left behind I definitely wanted to take my stuff with me to have for memories, and some of it maybe use for if I have kids one day, I mean really there’s no better board game than the Sweet Valley High one ha!
I was a huge Rainbow Brite fan, and I remember staring out a balcony when I was about 5 looking out in the sky wishing I could go and visit Rainbow Land! What, it’s not real? I came across one of the two Patty O’Green dolls I had.
I also wanted to keep my big red bear with matching crayola crayon piggy bank. I remember my dad won me this bear at the Fairfax County Fair when I was but a wee lass, so it was a favorite of mine. I love my papa! The crayola crayon piggy bank was my go to bank every summer when we’d hear the ice cream truck coming by. We’d be outside playing, I’d hear the bells, then race up to my bedroom to empty out the contents of the crayon, then ice cream sandwiches galore!
I’m also taking home my old school uniforms (pretty much every imaginable shade of plaid), kid clothes, random toys, all of which I will hold on to dearly as I loved my childhood <3 We lost a lot of our kid things over the years so I’m so happy my mom still had some of this stuff!
