Feeling Nestalgic

Have you ever had one of those days when you long to relive the happy memories of your childhood, or you long to find the music and books you love to read, so you can enjoy them all over again? This happened to me yesterday morning, while I was spending some precious time with my daughter.
Yesterday morning, My daughter wanted to watch the baby first channel, because she likes the colorful art, music, and watching the babies on television. I was listening to the music on this channel, and it reminded me of all the fun records I used to listen to as a child, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Thumper’s Big Race, and so many others. I also remembered some of the children’s books I listened to on recoreds and cassette tapes that I received in the mail from my regional Library for the blind. Some of these books I also share with my daughter now, while I wish I could find others that I enjoyed to share with her. Do you have a favorite childhood memory you’d like to relive through the eyes of your own child, or any other children in your life? Please let me know if there is a favorite book or children’s song you enjoyed, so I can find it if I haven’t read or heard it, and share it with the kids in my life.

  1. I’ve always enjoyed all the Jungle King songs, and have fond memories of them with kids I babysat.

  2. I don’t have kids, but often after a long day at work I’ll sit on my bed, let my eyes unfocus, and think about times long past. It’s pretty self-indulgent, but I enjoy is very much.

  3. What a lovely post. It took me back to the days when I listened to the record of the Wolf and the 7 kids in German. It’s called Der Wolf und die Sieben Geislein.
