It’s time for Wednesday Hodgepodge where Joyce asks the questions and we try to answer.
This is our middle child, Dan. Dan is Addyson and Jaymison’s daddy.
- August 12th is National Middle Child Day…are you a Middle Child? If not where in your family do you fall in terms of birth order? Do you hold true to the typical characteristics of oldest – middle- youngest – only child? Elaborate.
I was the youngest of 4 siblings until I was 7 and then our parents had 4 more children with #’s 7 and 8 being twins. I was very self-centered and manipulative. I worked hard at getting my way. There were lots of things I did that my older siblings didn’t do. My two older sisters were model students who got straight A’s. One of the teachers that they both had commented to me once in class that I wasn’t like my sisters. That comment didn’t sit well with me. I think my reply was something to the effect that I was my own person.
2. Tell us about a time you felt like (or you actually were) in the middle of nowhere.
On our drives to Southern California from the State of Washington there is a stretch of Interstate 5 south of Sacramento and north of Bakersfield that is so desolate and barren that you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.
3. What’s something you’re smack in the middle of currently?
Dear is in the middle of building his shop. I will be happy when the roof is completely done. He’s 3/4 done with it. Once that is done things should move easier.
4. What’s a food you love to eat that has something delicious in the middle?
There are so many things we enjoy with delicious things in the middle. Today I will choose a burrito.
5. Share a memory from your middle school days, or junior high if that’s what your school dubbed kids somewhere between grades 6-8.
We had Elementary, Junior High and High School. Our Junior high was 7th – 9th grade. In fall of 8th grade we were in Science class when our teacher turned the TV on for us to see the news that President Kennedy had been shot in Dallas. We were all shocked. There were lots of emotions from students and teachers. It’s a day I’ll never forget. Here’s a photo of our beautiful Montebello Junior High. Sadly it has since been demolished.
6. Insert your random thought here.
Here’s a photo of our new little brother who took my place as the youngest in the family in 1958! I’m the one with two front teeth missing.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leaving a comment.
