17 Tweets About The Unforgiving Memories Of Children

Aging sucks for a lot of reasons. Having to pay bills. Work 40 hours a week. Take care of a family. You get wrinkles, grey hair, and probably some annoying memory loss to boot. Names become harder to remember, memories begin to mix together. You know who doesn't have to worry about that? Kids. Kids have the most incredible memories, often at the disadvantage of their weary parents. Twitter user @toddedillard shared one such instance of obnoxiously vivid memory yesterday. It seems that two years ago he burned a single side of his daughter's quesadilla, and she refuses to let him live it down. The tweet inspired other parents to share their own struggles with their kids' impeccable recollection skills. While it must be frustrating to have your child constantly wielding "the receipts," these anecdotes are pretty damn entertaining.

    Organism - Pete Jolicoeur @PeteJolicoeur Replying to @JessicaSillers and @toddedillard My mom accidentally stepped on the first fish l ever caught whenI was 8. It was left on the dock and had an almost cartoonish footprint of a shoe indented across the middle of it. I'm in my late 30s and still bring it up annually to her. 9:50 am · 4/3/21 · Twitter for Android

    World - Sylvia Yvonne Jones @sydj1405 Replying to @PeteJolicoeur @JessicaSillers and @toddedillard | changed the tank water that my smal children's beloved pet fish resided in, and it was too cold. The fish convulsed and died. They never let me forget what I did to Charlie. They are 46 and 50... 10:32 am · 4/3/21 · Twitter for iPhone

    Organism - Katy @dopemixtape78 Replying to @toddedillard I once cut my son's finger while clipping his nails when he was a baby. I cried harder than he did at the time. Made the mistake of telling him I did this when he was older, and he's been reminding me since. 9:43 am · 4/3/21 · Twitter Web App

    Font - Alex London @ca_london Replying to @toddedillard At a crosswalk with the stroller, I stopped short once, thinking a car was going when it wasn't. Now, a year later, at every crosswalk my toddler says loudly to me (and to anyone else who can hear): "DONT GET SCARED!" 11:06 am · 4/3/21 · Twitter for iPhone

    Font - (Maureen Flaherty) @maureenflaherty Replying to @toddedillard and @ftrain When my twins were in kindergarten FIVE YEARS AGO, I switched their lunches. Once. Teachers enabled a hallway swap after a few tears and they still check their lunches every day. They didn't even have to eat the wrong lunch, but they unzip box and give me side eye every day. 9:37 am · 4/3/21 · Twitter for iPhone

    Font - moogi says WEAR A MASK @meg_bendy Replying to @toddedillard 1.5 years ago we took our fam to the ZOO, and our now-5yo got a pressed penny. She wanted a flamingo, but it came out a tiger. Last week I told her we were going to the zoo, and without hesitation the FIRST thing she said was "can I get a FLAMINGO penny?!" 10:57 am · 4/3/21 from Conroe, TX · Twitter for Android
