Childhood Memories Thread

Hello friends, sepia-toned childhood memories home movie!

I’m fascinated by childhood memories. I’m fascinated mostly by other people’s, because I have so few of my own. For whatever reason, my life before 18 is almost entirely obscured thick fog, save for a few images and smells and upsetting (but not traumatic) memories.

So I thought I’d post this thread as a prompt, for people to share their childhood memories — good, bad, and best of all, completely banal. I’ll start with a few of mine that I can find somewhere in the dusty filing cabinet of my mind.
