I should be writing about what was the stupidest thing I did as a kid but, I want to talk about the past!

There are a lot of things that I wish I would have done!  I wouldn't change my life now for anything but I wish I would have lived a little more.  Had a little more excitement in it!  I'll start with all the things that I wish I would have done and then end on a happier note with what I'm glad I did.

When I was a young lad I wish that I would have went to gymnastics!  I am 20 years old and I still can not do a cartwheel!  When I attempt to do one I look like I'm a drunk trying to roll over standing up!  Maybe I would be a little more bendy too :o)

I then wish that I would have learned how to play an instrument.  I probably would have played the piano.  I just think that it is a nice thing to say you can do.  I think that it would be nice sitting there and teaching your child how to play.  It would be nice quality time together.

Next I move onto high school.  Entering my freshman year I wish that I would have tried out for volleyball.  I think that I would have actually made the team.  But, because I found out the year before a girl, that I thought was better then me, didn't make the team.  I didn't allow myself the chance of playing because I was afraid of the rejection.

Also during high school, I wish that I would have joined more clubs and put forth some kind of effort.  Show people that I can do things and be good at it. 

Now moving onto the things that I have done and glad I did....

In grade school I played every sport a girl could play and was in every club I could.  I was known in grade school for being the girl who did everything.  Everyone knew me and some kids even wished that they could be all the things that I was.  I was in the "in" crowd!

During grade school I went to Disneyland twice and Wisconsin Dells twice a summer.  My birthday parties were in a hotel, because of my birthday being in January my Mom would take me and 5 friends to a hotel and go swimming in January!  It was the best!

From the age of five till the age of 16 I played: t-ball, little league baseball, major league baseball & 16' softball.  All I ate and drank for the summers were sunflower seeds, big chew gum, gatorade and water! 

In high school I went to New York and took a cruise to the Bahamas! I will never forget either trip they were wonderful!

Then getting pregnant.  Yeah I know I'm not married and all that blah, blah, blah stuff.  But,  I am in love, we were going to do it anyways but now we just started a couple years earlier.  I love my little guy soooooooo much!  I don't know how I ever lived without him!  When you become a parent you will be loved forever and it's the best feeling ever!
