100 Word Challenge – Week 47

Joining the weekly 100 words challenge for Grown ups. This week the prompt is to use the following picture

The very moment I saw this prompt I was cast back to my childhood.

I have wonderful memories of my Great Aunt singing to me, complete with hand gestures.

“I am a little teapot short and stought

Here’s my handle, here’s my spout,

Lift me up and pour me out”

I guess I was about two or three years old and it somehow seems rather comforting that 40 years later I remember those happy days of my childhood and wonder if my Aunt had any idea that those early memories would be with me all these years later.

    I remember that song but I don't remember who taught it to me. I taught it to my grandchildren. I wonder if they will remember 40 years from now.


  2. Isn't it funny how the “smallest” memories can stay with us?
