When I Was a Little Girl I...
needed my blankets to be "just so" while I napped, I would look over my shoulder to make sure all the corners were down
couldn't wait for knuckles to replace the dimples on my chubby little hands
had my parents get me a stand up mic with a laugh track and would perform comedy routines after dinner
LOVED singing christmas songs along with the radio in the light of the tree while my parents watched from the couch...Santa Baby by Madonna was my favorite- of course!
hid my vitamins in a jar in my room and when they started to smell I'd throw them in the woods behind my house
wanted to be an actress and even tried out for Free Willy 2 ;)
thought glamour shots were really cool and have photos to prove it!
could climb the tall rope faster than any boy in my neighborhood
would do all sorts of stupid things my brother told me to do while my parents were at work
wore a uniform from kindergarten to 8th grade at private catholic school
lived little over a mile away from my future husbands house and didn't even know it!
watched a ton of soap operas during the summer when I should have been out playing - General Hospital was my favorite
was in 4h arts and crafts and entered competitions where I had to stand in front of a panel of judges and answer questions while making blueberry muffins or wearing an outfit I made
woke up from a nap to an empty house and looked around the neighborhood for my parents...the next door neighbor boy found me and bought be a pacman ice cream until my parents came home
Thanks Rebekah for this exercise, so fun to recall my youth!
