Yellow: 7 facts about my childhood

Oops, sorry about that…!

7 Facts about my childhood:

1.  I grew up in the deep, deep South of the United States.
2.  Pretty poor, too.
3.  All of my ‘major’ injuries as a child resulted from running barefooted (stepped on rusty nails, broken bottles, tried to climb trees and ripped open my toes, fell in a creek and cut my knee open, etc.)
4.  My 'weird’ talent as a child was being able to roll my stomach.  Still can, too!
5.  I got into ballet (for eight years) because I saw all the costumes my friend had once and wanted to wear the costumes, not because I had any particular desire to dance.
6.  I used to tell everyone I was going to be a doctor, “I’m gonna be a doctor…. gonna be a doctor… gonna be a doctor!” 20 years later, I’m actually on my way to becoming a doctor, just not the kind I first imagined.
7. I never had separation anxiety when dropped off at school, daycare, etc., but one time I faked it just to see what all the fuss was about.  I remember freaking out and crying and holding onto my mom, and she didn’t rush me or push me away or anything, she just held me until I was calm.  I never did it again.
