Top 10 Childhood Stories
I will share my top 10 childhood stories that will never fade away.
I have loads of childhood stories, however, for now, I will share 10 stories.
Someone will constantly share a childhood story about you either in family events or whenever you get with your friends for dinner. Maybe you find out that they tell random people stories about you.
I love to relive childhood memories when we share our ‘Remember when…’ stories.

My Top 10 Childhood Stories:
- I killed a rat with my bare hands when I was a tiny kid. Fortunately, I do not remember this at all.
- I enjoyed eating waffles with mayo and pickles on it.
- I flipped the school bus driver off when I was in preschool. In my defense, I did not know what the middle finger meant. My mom cracked up when the angry school bus driver told her.
- I was the only one brave enough to stand up to one of my uncles. He is a big guy with a deep voice that would have scared kids when he is mad. It was funny because I was the youngest and smallest one out of all my siblings and cousins. I got in trouble for talking back, but I still did it again and again anyways. I believe it was because I could not hear his voice while my siblings and cousins could.
- As a toddler, I hit my brother’s eyebrow with a dog bone. He had to go to the hospital to get stitches.
- I made a lot of animated gifs back in middle school and high school. People will tell me they remember specific gifs from my old days. I made a lot of friends that way. They will never let the memory of some embarrassing animated gifs to die. That was when I grew my love for photography and graphic design though.
- In 5th grade during a school pep rally, my leg fell asleep. We had to stand up to do the pledge allegiance so I stood up. I fell down to the floor because I couldn’t feel my leg. Everyone laughed at me.
- All people who knew me as a kid knew that I was a troublemaker. With a friend, we once called the cops pretending that our fake baby was in a fire. I taped a wall with duct tape inside my childhood home out of the blue and it ruined the wall. Sometimes I’d leave home without letting anyone know when I was in elementary school. In school, I always got in trouble for threatening to cut other kids’ hair, scratch their arms or destroy their property.
- I was a tomboy growing up. I RARELY combed my hair and always wore a big t-shirt with blue jeans. People judged my mom or complained to her that she needed to comb my hair more often. She gave up on combing my hair because I always refused.
- I wrote my grandpa a note if I could do a job for him and get paid $10. He knew basic signs yet not enough to carry a conversation. He wrote back that he wanted me to polish his shoes, make him a sandwich or make his bed. Sometimes I would do that every day and get $10 from him each time. My mom found out and attempted to get him to stop, but he wouldn’t stop. I miss him.
These stories reveal a little bit about the person it’s about. For example, the stories above showed that I was rebellious, creative and bold. Even though I would not do these things ever again, my personality remained the same. It is funny because I could not be mean to people now. I do not like it when other people are sad or disappointed. I often try to make them laugh or smile. Way different from when I was a kid.
Try not be self-conscious about your past, because they are only a tiny part of who you are. They cannot hold you back. They cannot limit your ability to grow. They cannot prevent you from changing for the better. I did not remember much from my earliest years, so it was fascinating to learn more about who I used to be as a kid. These wild childhood stories made me smile because now I have plenty of stories to tell my daughter, Coral.
What is one life story people will never stop telling other people about you? What does it tell you about your personality?
