Fun Monday #19 - A Trip Down Memory Lane

Fun Monday this week is being hosted by Karisma at Karisma and Kids. This is want she wants us to do:

"I want you to take a trip down memory lane, and keep right on going, right back to your childhood. And I want to hear "THAT STORY". You remember the one? Yes, you do! The one your parents, siblings, extended family or friends, would never let you forget, live down or get over!"

I was a perfect little angel when I was younger, so my story isn't that fantastic, BUT here goes !!

I am the oldest of six siblings. Three brothers followed me before I got any sisters. So, this episode took place when Brother #3 was just a baby. And, I wasn't even in school yet.

We lived in military quarters in West Point, NY and I don't remember what we were looking at, but Brother #1 and Brother #2 were standing on the couch and looking out the window. I wanted to join in. They wouldn't let me, so I pulled on the cord to the venetian blinds (remember the wide slatted, heavy metal kind) and they came crashing down right on Brother #2's head ! I don't remember if I ever got to look out the window, but I do know that to this day, my brother has a pretty little scar on the top of his head where hair just won't grow. I don't see him often because he lives in CA, but he has never let me forget what I did.

Make sure you pay Karisma a visit and read all about everyone else's memories.

Sorry this is so late BUT it is very difficult to post when you have no electricity !! It finally came on after a half hour or so ....

Hmmm, I think I've heard this story before!!!

Must have been tough being the only girl with THREE brothers.

Too funny.

Still, this was an accident, and they were standing on the couch. Plus, you were just a little kid. Did the cut require stitches? This must have been frightening for all of you. Those head wounds, even small ones, can bleed profusely.

Oh no. I bet you were so scared you would be in trouble. At least it was an accident. :D

That'll teach em to keep you from looking at something.

I thought you would say something about the trip you and Brother 1 made and got caught. ( Well one of you did).
