What stories have you been told about yourself as a baby?

I don’t remember my mother ever telling me any stories about myself as a baby. When my daughter asked her about me as a child, my mother couldn’t recall any stories to tell her.

My older sister told me that she used to feed me smooth peanut butter and sometimes milk to quiet me because my mother left me crying in my crib for long periods of time.

  1. Only the common ones like ” when you were born you were so ugly the doctor slapped your mother. I was so ugly as a toddler mom tied a porkchop around my neck to get the dog to play with me. I was so ugly when it looked like my face caught on fire and my mother put it out with an ax. Just kidding, but I really don’t remember anything specific. I think people in general put a lot of importance to their lives, but the reality is in 30 or so years after you die no one will remember anything about you, of even that you existed. Just the way it is.

    1. That’s kinda dark…My great grand-mother has been gone over 40 years. I still remember a great deal about her. I think the importance comes with the relationships you build throughout your life – not life itself. I believe that many people find it difficult to connect with others on anything other than a superficial level (it doesn’t take long to forget that). So, I agree, many people put a lot of importance to their lives; when they don’t contribute to the lives of those around them in a meaningful way – they are soon forgotten after they are gone.

      1. I don’t really see it as dark. But after a while I will be forgotten. That doesn’t bother me. I try to remember my great grandparents and remember a few things, but after I’m gone my children know nothing of them. . . Maybe a little dark but realistic too. Love sharing this with you. This is an interesting spot to share some simple but beautiful memories.
