~HERE I AM FINALLY~

Do I Ever Have A Story To Tell You


It began many years ago.
I was not aware of it in the beginning,
but I can tell you that as soon as I did get aware of it
I then became boss.

It seems that I did everything I could to be boss.
I remember that my mother reminded me many times that I was the

~Oldest and the Boldest~

She may have told me also that that I was the

~First and the Worst~

I aimed to prove her wrong!
But now let me show you how this all started.
My parents never told me
that it was my fault that I was born.
Had they done that
I can tell you here and now that
I have plenty of evidence to show that
it was not my fault.

This is how it began.
First there was this Announcement thing
that My Mom had sent to my Gramma
my dad's mom
and I have the envelope to prove it.

Now I think that alone was enough proof, but she went further than that she sent her this too!

j_storkan

and then as though that was proof enough
this is what it said that made me think that it really happened.

j_announce1

Now what do you think of that,
then she even went one step further
to prove she had been serious about my arrival.
She went so far as to have even sent
a hand-written note to my Gramma
and this is what she said.

j_momgramnote

This is how it all began
and I thought from all that it said there
that this entitled me to be really
somebody important
and so I thought
what to heck
since there was no one else first then that made me
~BOSS~

From that day on when she brought me home from the hospital
you can be sure that I never once let her forget who was ~BOSS~

I really think
MY DAD
got that message too!

I will now show you how my life began to unraveled from that day unward.

I FINALLY SEE MYSELF

I don't remember too much about those first few years of my life
but I have a few pictures to show that I really did show up at my
parent's home.

One of the first that they had taken of me seems to be this one.



Even Mom finally got the courage to show up with me for one of these photo-ops!


And my Dad was not one to get left out and so he stepped up and got that famous photo-op with me too!


And there were more
because once my grandmother,uncles and neighbors all heard about the new resident in town
they too
came rushing over for their photo-opping with me.

THEN ONE DAY SOMETHING STRANGE HAPPENED


Just as I said
something was changing in my family.
I found out one day that I was no longer the Boss.
There was a new face in the house and I can tell you this did not make me happy.


And to make it worse
there was my favorite aunty holding this stranger.
My mom and dad were calling him Dicky.

But as I thought and thought about this I got
a brainstorm of an idea.
Yeah, that was it!
~THAT'S THE TICKET~
I just knew from then on I would have someone who could take the blame for breaking the plate and spattering the mud.
What great news this turned out to be and I knew that I had best
right then
start being good to this little Dicky boy.

So I began to cozy up to him and eventually I even got up the courage to kiss him.

And as time went on we both grew
we became very good friends.
In fact it seemed that were were inseparable.

~Yeah we just spent a lot of time together~

I GOT SOME GOOD IDEAS


Not long after all this new stuff happened at our house I knew that I had to take every opportunity to be seen with him every chance I got.

j_photopping


I think this must have been a very special occasion
maybe it was Church day

Then soon Dicky and I were doing everything together.
We were so inseparable by now that I even shared ~MY WHEELS~
with him

I FINALLY GOT TO THOSE EXCITING YEARS


After graduation from the Eighth Grade

I then began to seriously think of other things.
I spent many hours thinking about my future.



And then
I continued to grow and in wisdom too!
