In A Nutshell

In a Nutshell

A place set aside to answer 201 autobiographical questions
from a mother for her daughter. This may take awhile...join us if you like.

25. People described me as a child in this way.
When my family talks about me as a child, they mention that I was happy and bright. Busy. Very busy all the time. Ate up learning new things. Loved to show off everything I knew and could do.

Serious about serious things -- I was flower girl at my Aunt Flo's wedding on her 27th and my 9th birthday, and am told I took great care all day long not to muss my lovely yellow dress or tip the hoop skirt up immodestly or to be off-beat as I walked down the aisle.

Intent. Although I laughed a lot, everything was important. The world was my oyster. And, when Forrest was born, I noticeably got my nose out of joint. Because, as a child, I was the oney-oney and I liked it that way.

I think your nose is still out of joint the post about what you liked best about your siblings, and what you wrote is that they took awhile to show up! HA! Not one word of their qualities...

Telling, that...

I know. Either these two got me in the same mood, or it's the truth -- I don't seem to have matured equally in all areas.
