So my mom ditched me again and went home to Jamaica for a couple of days. With my cousin as her unofficial chauffer, he's been all over the place with her, including to one of the houses that we used to live in. I almost died when he BBM'd this picture to me. I was very young when I lived in this house but I remember it very clearly. Big sis and I shared a room - we had twin beds on each side of the room. I celebrated my 4th birthday here with a huge birthday bash. I had a bounce house on the front lawn which was a huge deal because no one at the party had even seen a bounce house in Jamaica before, or as we Jamaican's call it "Bounce About", lol. My mom use to go crazy for my birthdays, which is why even as an adult I still consider my birthday to be a national holiday, lol. My cousins and I would play on the hills, going all the way to the top and racing each other down to the bottom. This was also where I saw my great grandmother alive for the last time before her passing. The main thing I remember about this house was all the parties that my mom use to have. She was so much into entertaining. Seeing this photo just reminded me of a carefree time of my life...no problems. I think I lived here until I was about 6 because I lived here when I visited America for the first time - which was a big deal. I think I'll share that story another time. I'll also share some photos from my last trip home.
What are some of your
fond childhood memories?
