Story Time 📝
There are a lot of things from my childhood that I have forgotten. But one of the things I will always remember is the first time I felt guilty for doing something bad 🙉. I think I was about 5 years old, maybe 6 👶, and I had been playing all day with one of my close neighbourhood friends. She had this small little wooden giraffe toy that moved around when you press on the bottom. My friend really didn't care about this toy, but I loved it, and her dad actually offered it to me because I liked it and kids being kids my friend said no she wanted to keep it. Rightfully so, it was her toy! But after playing and about to walk home I saw a chance to take that toy giraffe home with me 🤷♀️. I, like the super stealthy 6 year old that I was, I snuck up the side of my property with this little palm-sized giraffe toy. The last thing I can remember is my brother catching me in the forest next to my house, very obviously hiding something 🤦♀️. I'm can't be certain but I think my brother told on me and I had give the giraffe back. It was the first time I very consciously did something I knew was bad but would end up serving as a bit of a morale compass having now learned that doing something bad doesn't feel good!
Isn't it amazing and somewhat humerus to think about those first experiences as a child haha.... 🤔
