"Memory... is the diary that we all carry about with us."—Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest
I Miss My Childhood is a blog about childhood and all of the unique memories and stories connected to an individual's experience. What once began as a personal endeavor in June 2006, expanded to feature contributions from fellow bloggers/writers of varying ages, backgrounds and nationalities (Canada, the United States, the Netherlands and England).
As I document some of my earliest moments, I hope you will be transported back to your childhood and relive some of your most treasured times. Childhood is not always filled with happy experiences but any joy that can be experienced is worth holding on to.
Have a Memory to Share? Readers are always welcome to share their childhood pics and stories. Send an email for more information.
Remember to browse through the archives. This blog has a lovely repository of memories, written with affection and humour. Welcome and I hope you enjoy your visit!
"A childhood is what anyone wants to remember of it."—Carol Shields
With many good wishes...
Chelly is the creator/contributing editor of I Miss My Childhood. She hails from Toronto, Canada. She's a Peanuts obsessed (the Charlie Brown kind, not the Mr. Planter variety although she finds the latter in moderation rather enjoyable), mystery novel loving, retro enthusiast. Childhood for her was family, make-believe and storytelling. You can read more about her here or here. View her profile, read her posts or view vintage photos.
This blog is dedicated to her hero and the love of her life, her beloved mother, Susee Mable, in loving memory.
