So I don't know what inspired it...actually I do...it was when I was pullin into the parking lot and realized how i never would have made the turn without powersteering when this thought wandered into my mind. I didn't have power steering till I was 28....and then the list EVOLVED.
So I stared early...I don't have kids but when I do...I have a whole list of "suck it ups" or "I had it worse then you" all planned out. Here is the list. Feel free to add some of your! LOL
I didnt have ac or powersteering till 28
I didn't have a cell phone till I was 26
I wasn't allowed to drive till I could change the oil
I didn't get my drivers license till I was 17 cuz we could only afford to have one teenager on insurance
Didn't kiss till I was 19
My Dad (aka stake president) interviewed/intimidated all my dates
Didn't get my braces till sophmore year and wore them all through the rest o high school
My Dad bought all my basketball shoes 1-2 sizes too big cuz he was conviced I would "grow into them by the end of the year." I didn't grow till I was out of highschool
We got new clothes ONCE a year b4 school
We didn't have sprinkler system. We had to move sprinklers every half hour around our 1 acre lot
We had to hand wax the van every year
I cleaned behind to door handles with a toothbrush on the cars
Pressure washed the driveway....in the rain or snow...down to the road (a good quarter mile long driveway)
My parents said I "didn't have acne" so I never got to see a dermotologist..till I was 28
Swept a parking lot and stocked a cooler for money when I was about 10
When I was 12 I learned to run the register but my older sister was better at it so I still had to sweep parking lot
If we didn't put our bags in our rooms after school Dad THREW them off the deck. Papers flew everywhere and were often subject to sprinklers.
I was allowed to have ONE fried over a MONTH!
We were allowed to have a friends over for a birthday party every other year
My Mom washed my hair till I was 8 or 12 (help me Kris). She didn't think I was capable of "doing a good job."
