1993-Christmas Family PictureI was an imaginative child. I had over 50 imaginary students that I would teach. I also had 8 imaginary children of my own, and an imaginary prince-husband named Michael (no I did not purposely name my son after him). As a child, I was a perfect mother. I wrote this reminder note to myself in 1994 titled, "When I grow up I will..." I vaguely remember the circumstances surrounding the authoring of it, but at the moment I must've felt like I wasn't getting what I wanted-however, 15 years later it has made quite the hilarious read.
When I grow up I will...
get treats from the store for my children, let them play most of the time and let them work a little, I'll let my children do a little bit of things they want to do, have them do a little bit of chores, sew them cloths, have them have days to go places with me, take them to the park, take them swiming, go to the zoo, take them to grandmas house, go to Disninyland, go to the movies, give them good presnets on their Birthdays and on Christmas, say yes on most of the things they ask or tell me about, take them to the dendest, get donets, cakes, and cookies, read them goodnight stories, teach them about Jesus, never ground them, take them to pizza hut, take them to restronst, let them have anything they want for brefest, lunch and dinner, take them to the beach, get them a subprises, how much they work I will give them money.
I then continued by writing a list of presents I plan to get for my daughters and me, and another of gifts for my "husbin" and sons. Some of the highlights include:
Play turtles, rockie talkies, mabie a new pet, bing bag, flashlights, glass things, crayons and papper, clipboards, and new jornal.
Let me tell you-I am very grateful my mom saved these and put them in my scrapbook. =) Life can't get any better than just being a kid. What are some of the things you dreamed up as a child?
