It's nearly mid September and by now all the kiddies are back in school. Let's be honest moms and dads.....feels pretty damn good doesn't it? To have some routine and maybe a clean house for longer than twenty minutes? If you are like me it's a 'hell yes' moment that's bittersweet. My oldest is in Highschool and the youngest grade 7, so they're not little babies anymore. They're growing older and having a lot of firsts in the next few years.....got me to thinking about my firsts!
So, I thought it would be fun to share a bunch of firsts and I'm hoping you all will too....great way for me to get to know our readers!
1. FIRST KISS....mine was in grade six and when I kissed George Dailey out behind the bleachers at the arena. It was wet and sloppy and I broke up with him the next day.
2.FIRST CRUSH/REAL PERSON...mine was a boy, Dave, who I crushed huge on for years. Years people...he was my obsession. When we finally dated however I was into dudes with long hair so it didn't pan out, but man, how intense were those feelings?
3.FIRST CRUSH/CELEBRITY....I had a few and
On a side note, Leif played boyfriend to Kristy McNicol on the television show Family and I had a big girl crush on her!
4.FIRST SLOW DANCE WITH A BOY....was at a family function. I remember wearing a white dress and one of my older brother's friends asked me to dance...he was cute...I was excited...but as we danced all I could think was...he smelled like cows and barns....oy
5.FIRST DATE....I was 14 and my parents allowed me to go on a car date...14 people....that won't be happening with mini me. Nope.
6.FIRST FAVE BAND....Styx...I loved everything about them...their music, they're concepts...the songs...and I especially loved Tommy Shaw. Boat on the River is still one of my all time favorite songs.
7.FIRST LIVE CONCERT....I have a great one...Prince and the Revolution on the Purple Rain tour. I saw them in Toronto 2 nights in a row and to this day it is probably the best concert I've ever seen. Prince rocks in so many ways.
8.FIRST ROMANCE READ....This Calder Sky by Janet Dailey. Loved all those books.
9.FIRST CELEBRITY FREAK OUT....um, standing beside Jon Bon Jovi in a toronto club while Skid Row was performing and well, freaking out when I realized he and Ritchie were there....right beside me....I screamed, and jumped around and started a near riot....LOL
10.FIRST BOOK SALE....I sold His Darkest Hunger 3 years ago on September 11.
So, Please share all your firsts with me!!!!!! I'd love to get to know you all better!
