Day 4 of the Blog Challenge. "Post 10 things most people don't know about you"
Ok, so this topic should be super easy, right? Wrong! I think I am a pretty open book so I feel like writing 10 things is kind of redundant, but in the spirit of things I dug deep.
In no particular order, enjoy this randomness!
#1 My middle name is Michelle. For some reason people are surprised by that. I always ask people what they thought it was or should be and they always answer "I don't know, but I didn't think it would be that"
#2 I have 3 older siblings and 3 younger siblings.
#3 I attended 3 different Kindergartens as a child.
#4 As a child growing up in Green Bay in the 80's, people thought my Dad was a Green Bay Packer. We used to go along with it. To be fair my Dad had a few Packer friends and we lived in a neighborhood of apartments where a few of them resided during the season so you could see the mix up.
#5 I always wanted 0, 1 or 4 children. I have 3!
#6 No matter where I sleep, I must always sleep closest to the wall in case there is an intruder. Yeah, I still don't know the logic to that.
#7 I hold my breath when I open the fridge. I hate fridge smells.
#8 I totally believe in signs. I believe we just miss them or we realize them after the fact,but I believe there are little signs everywhere!
#9 I am a super emotional person, yet I am super bad at showing emotion. Just know I always care and probably too much.
#10.....oh what to write..... I am seriously paused here.....5 minutes later, Ah Ha! I am 50/50. Yep it is true. For some it's obvious and for some it's not. I am 50% Caucasian and 50% African American. For some reason I get "Spanish" a lot. Can we all say Seinfeld ;)
Well there you have it!
True story! Today I was driving along with my Diva, it is not often that it is just her and I, I was thinking about how big she is getting and how soon we will be able to do more things like story time,etc... Then I started getting super sad ( #9 ) and feeling so bad that she was getting big, really that all my kids were getting big. We stopped at the library and as I looked over I saw my little Diva reading this book ( #8 ). I grabbed the phone so fast and snapped a picture. I mean, a real sign right there for me. I read the book a few times to her with tears in my eyes and I can't say it made me feel any better, but I felt blessed to be there in that moment with her. Thankfully my phone worked fast enough, which rarely happens, so that I could capture this moment.
Thank you for stopping by! 3 more days of the blog challenge and then I will leave you alone for a while!
