I am taking part in a 15 week series from Mommy's Piggy Tales  This series is a way for us to record the story of out youth. I will be writing a "chapter" every Thursday.

Preschool / Kindergarten Years

It was during these years that my mom and I got our own place to live - a place I would call home for most of my elementary years!

I searched high and low for a photo to share with you of me on my first day of Kindergarten, but my mom has all my pictures from my childhood. I will try to get a bunch of them scanned so I can add some later!

I never did go to preschool but I was in daycare. I remember liking daycare - one home daycare stands out in my mind. I remember being able to watch "Mr. Dress-Up" or "Sesame Street" while the lady made lunch for us. I especially loved her grilled cheese sandwiches!
One of my favorite memories of kindergarten was having my mom drop me off at school. I loved the short little drive or the times we walked together!

I loved going to kindergarten and even though I was the quietest girl in the class, i loved being there!

Do you all have more memories from these years? If I ever think of another memory I'll be sure to add it in! Isn't that the great thing about blogging about your can always add to them!

I also had a hard time coming up with memories from so long ago! Makes me wonder if I was even there?

Thanks for sharing - I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the travel time with your mom. I chose a daycare for my son that is close to my work rather than my home for exactly that reason. Amber :)

Sounds like you had some good memories! It's nice that you're mom found a home daycare for you to be in. Like you, My Mom has almost all pictures of me, so I had to beg for some for this project. Looking forward to getting to know you better in the weeks to come.

I too was super quiet. The first day of kindergarten my whole class thought I was mute :)
It's amazing how many memories have been flooding back to me as I have participated in this...and it's only the second week!

Isn't it nice to feel like a "big girl" and get your own room?? I love grilled cheese, too, but my mom often made us mac-n-cheese, homemade chicken noodle soup or spaghetti. Yummy memories! Thanks.

As I was reading this post, your story didn't seem familiar so I went back and read your birth story. Somehow I had missed reading it. That's truly amazing. My mom had my brother when she was 16, and even though she and my dad married, she could have made a different choice, too. I'm so proud of your mom.

I loved kindergarten, too! Had a great teacher who could play the piano.
