When I was a little girl...

I had a little fisher price table at which I did all my crafts...

I hated dolls and one time tried to convince my sister to have a Barbie yard sale to get rid of hers...
I loved Jelly Shoes and couldn't stand the day my mom took me to K-Mart and told me this was my last pair...




I cooked in the kitchen and pretended like I was filming a TV show (this was before Food Network BTW)



I had candy cigarettes and drank root beer and worried/loved that someone might think it was the real thing...

I forced my sister to "play school" with me promising if I was the teacher first, she could be second. Then I quit when I was done being the teacher.


 What are some funny things you remember from your childhood?

(BTW, I'm back to the world of blogging because I turned in my comprehensive exams and will be graduating from my master's degree program December 11th as long as I pass!)

First of all, thank you for playin' along :) (i appreciate it!).

I love this post!! Wow, we were a lot alike, you and I!! Fisher Price, crafts, Jelly shoes(!), candy cigarettes & rootbeer- LOVED them all. Not a big Barbie fan (still not, even though Hailey has a ton... They were always disheveled and naked, with a billion little parts scattered everywhere, so we donated it all when when she was still way too young for Barbie... but then the holidays/birthdays came- and it's all back :).

I was the younger sister, so I didn't have the pleasure of 'making the play rules.' (but I watch Jacob do it *quite frequently)
