Graciegirl - you sound like me! I was a tomboy- loved to play outside and play games and stuff. I always wanted to have kids and be a mother. I thought I wanted to be a writer, but realized that I was too sociable to enjoy such a solitary profession, so I became a teacher.
I was one of six and my mother called me her most mischievous. I was good at school, loved pretty much every minute of it because I was so curious and loved learning new things. I would pretty quickly bend most rules in order to have fun, but would never do anything really bad like break any laws or hurt anyone.
Every day was an adventure. I woke up early and stayed up as late as I could. I was always outside walking my dogs, swimming, riding my bike, playing jump rope, running around in the woods- we went camping alot.
My parents also loved to travel and so I was taking long trips and visiting new places from the time I can remember. It's in my blood- I still love nothing more than a road trip or visiting and learning about a new place.
We lived in a great neighborhood with lots of kids to play with.
My life turned out better than I ever could have wished really.
This is me at five:
