There was a time that my mom asked me, "Do you think that you have had a good childhood?"

And of course my reply was, "Yes."

I didn't stop to ask why. I was caught in the moment of flashbacks and replays of the times that have made me, me.  I never doubted that answer. My best childhood friend aside from my two brothers, was Siv Parker. The memories I recall the most from times with her were stuffing our bras with socks or water balloons and going to meet out fake boyfriends.
 Another thing that I don't think will ever leave me is a time that my sister and I were over at Siv's house. We were staying up sooo late for our standards and all three of us never finished our milk that we had with dinner. So we poured it all together into one cup and had the greatest apiphany to make "egg nog". we got pepper, hairspray, perfume and all types of things to be our ingredients. When he had everything put together, we thought shining  a laser in the cup would help it out. lol.
Then we wanted to keep it for some odd reason and hide it away.
So we kept it in Siv's cupboard in her room and let it rot. haha.

Those aren't the only things that I remember, though. I remember all the get togethers with my family for holidays. I remember being just this crazy little girl with my friends and family.. all the times that have made me the person to love today.

It's just  a little crazy how you spend your life wishing on being older, being different, being younger. and we never really stop to enjoy who it is we really are at that moment...until it's too late.
