So many things happened today that could have fallen under the "childhood memory" category. It's amazing to see my children play and learn like I did! This picture, taken earlier in the day, captures Miriam wearing a hard hat and reading stories. I used to go to work with my father when I was a bit older than her (maybe just a bit older than Benjamin, actually). He worked in a factory at the time, and my brother and I would ride our tricycles around the large open spaces not too far from the machines. I can't remember if I had to wear a hard hat. Likely not, as there wasn't a problem with toddlers being in a factory "back in the day," but I remember wanting so much to be like my father. Alas, I turned out much more like my mother, and I never could put down a good book!
