What story about your past do your parents or siblings still bring up? It seems like family just can’t let the past go; they still see you as a teenager (or child). Is it any wonder that I find myself acting like a 15 yo when I’m around them? lol
My Mom still has to bring up the clarinet I begged them to buy me when I was 13. Then I quit band a few months later. Still. brings. it. up and I’m 41 now. Seriously lady, Let It Go!

Haha that funny, oh man Ikeep hearing about this one story when I was about 4 years old and I snuck into the bathroom… by the time I got out the bathroom and myself where white with baby powder and nivea cream. I had gone crazy with that stuff and put it everywhere on the sink, the walls, the toilet, the tub, floors and myself lol I’ll never hear the end of that story!

My parents always bring up the “trip from hell”. They took me to Disney when I was 2 and I was not well-behaved. My mom was so excited to take my on the Peter Pan ride and then I just cried the whole time. Apparently I threw a tantrum outside of Epcot and while my dad was waiting for me to stop some old lady was like “Oh how adorable, how old?” and my dad said “Two and she ain’t making three”. I also took off running in front of the parade down mainstreet. There’s a pic of my dad chasing me down that is hilarious.
Public Service Announcement Do not take your two year old to Disney. They will torture you and they won’t remember a thing. Four is perfect.

My mom still loves to tell (and laugh) about me falling out of a wading pool when I was 5 and breaking my arm. Yeah, it’s amusing but it hurt 🙁

My mom loves to tell the story about how I embaressed her at K-Mart. When I was younger I used to run around all the time, so she bought these velcro handcuff things (one goes on the kids wrist, one on the parent, with a telephone type cord in between). Anyways, I was clearly a genius child, so at the age of 2 I figured out how to take off the cuff, strapped it to a clothing rack and walked off. I guess she pulled and pulled trying to get me from under the rack until the whole thing fell over and I was still no where to be seen.
Apparently I was found wandering around the store.
Still. Embaressing. Now. 😛

My parents bring up the fact that i dumped a guy at 13 who “ate his chips weird”. What? He DID eat his chips weird it annoyed me!!
My SO’s family often brings up stories of how he and his siblings would wrestle in their underwear after dinner. “Push the table back! Its wrestling time”.

There are MANY that my parents keep telling like…
- The time i fell asleep at the table mid-chew… they woke me up and I continued eating.
- The time we were at the fireworks and I decided to yell “oh ahhh tampons” (was three god knows why I said it!)
- The time I first met my now uncle and he told me to spit out the too big of a mouthful i had taken… so i did… into his hand.
I cant remember anymore but I GUARENTEE you those above will come up at the wedding :S as well as any other stupid things I do between now and then lol.

My parents don’t really tell any, but my sissy will not stop telling (everyone) about the time I dared her to get in the oven. It was small play kitchen and I told her I’d give her a dollar if she could fit into the oven part. She got stuck and my dad had to take the thing apart (with her screaming) to get her out.
The other story she likes to tell is how I put her in the dryer. Apparently I wanted to see her go “round and round” like a cartoon I had watched that day. Anyway mom noticed all was quiet in the house (never a good sign) and I was busy dragging a kitchen chair to the laundry room. “What are you doing with that chair,” mom said. “Sissy’s in the dryer and I want to turn it on to watch her spin around,” I said. At least I was an honest kid.

I am only 23 so i still remember them to talk about them. But from talking to mothers and seeing my nephews and neices grow up… I know that stories are something that will always be told. It helps them remember you at that age.
My older sisters still like to remind me of when I was 5 and they shut my toe in the door and its never been the same since. Or how they hated my barney stuffed animal and i’d come in my room to see him hanging by his neck. I was one tortured child… I guess thats what i get for being the youngest.
So then I grew up and tortured my younger friend by telling her she must be retarted because she only uses 10 percent of her brain… she went home to tell her mom who ofcourse confirmed it. perfect. I still remind her of it. and shes like shut up i really thought i was retarted.

Fun post! When I was around 13, we bought the house across the street from our current home. To move, we would just take our time and carry everything across.
My mom asked me and a cousin to roll the wooden microwave cart across. Naturally we had a long, concrete driveway, so the obviously solution would be for her to ride on it while I pushed 😉 Once we hit the bottom of the driveway, the entire wooden cart just collapsed into pieces.
My mom was watching from the window, and was laughing too hard to get mad!

@takemyhand: That is extremely clever! HAHA
I’m enjoying reading all the stories. My dad has told me a million times the story of when he saw me put a penny in my mouth at the age of 1. Apparently I thought he didn’t see me and he yelled, “what’s in your mouth?!?” and I immediately stuck out my tongue to expose the penny.

@Kate0558: I tortured my little sister in similar ways. She had a cute little stuffed pig, but I’d joke and say it was ham, bacon, etc. One time I had a hold of it and she was chasing me around the kitchen table. I didn’t know what to do next, so I opened the microwave and threw it in. Now 15 yrs later my mom admits she found it hilarious. But I know what you must have gone through! Younger siblings to have the upper hand on some stuff though. It’s not easy being the big sister…even though it can be fun sometimes. ;P
