My, er, Myka's stash of Little Golden Books
Most of my family members, especially my aunts, have a bad habit of being "pack rats". My mom and I are no exception. I finally made myself throw away letters from late elementary/early middle school a month or so ago when we were going through some things. Yah. I'm one of those people. However, I'm glad my mom and I have a habit of holding onto things for longer than we should in certain instances. Namely, a lot of items from when I was a kid.
Even when I was younger, I thought it was cool that my mom was saving a lot of my old toys, books, etc. for when I had kids. It's especially cool since I have my own daughter now, so I can actually get all of that old stuff out, including my Cabbage Patch dolls and Little Golden Books.
I seem to have a better memory when it comes to things that happened a long time ago than recently. Why do I say that? When my mom first sent those books pictured above home with me (we live in separate states) and I was going through them, I actually remembered some of them. Crazy, huh?
Just a few of my favorites. I liked the "Baby Sister" book because I always wanted a sibling. Have I ever mentioned how much being an only child blows?
I can't wait to make new memories with my daughter with these books. Plus a lot of them are about cats, contain cats, or have cats as the main characters, so they should keep Myka extra entertained. ;)
Did you keep any of your old toys for when you had your own kids? What was your favorite one?
