Dear Mom & Pop,
I wish I could say that all of the stunts I pulled happened as a kid, but we'd all know that wasn't true. I'm sure you remember the signs because... Well, because those moments are definitely unforgettable.
However, when I think back to my childhood, there are a couple of moments that definitely require some reminiscing. Like the time I shot my BB gun in the house and I actually shot a hole through the refrigerator. You have to give me credit because you didn't actually find that one until months later. That magnet, combined with Travis's report card worked quite well at covering up the crime scene.
Or how about the time when I decided I was going to go live with Grandma? I packed my bag,
hopped on my tricycle and y'all let me get at least a mile away before Pops came and picked me up, set me and my tricycle in the bed of the truck and brought me back home. The best part was when he got me out, put me on the ground and I took off again. Thought I'd teach him. Funny how I was the only one of us that was out of breath.
Lots of fond memories, Mom & Pop. I thank you for every one of them. Love you both!
Dear Mom & Pop,
While I sit here trying to think of all the crazy stunts we pulled as kids, I think of so many things.
I've shared these stories with Kylie and Gage a few times as well and I always get the same looks. The one that says, "I don't doubt that at all." You'd think we were rowdy or something.
The one thing I remember most is back when Sawyer was in kindergarten (maybe first grade) and we both had to stay home from school because we were sick. I convinced him that the police were going to come get us because we were skipping school and since it was illegal to skip school, we needed to hide. Well, technically, I told him that he needed to hide. You were quite upset with me at the time because he fell asleep in the dryer and I forgot about him. Now that I think about it, I guess it was a good thing I hadn't turned it on.
And yes, I know we caused you to pull your hair out from all the crap we pulled, and now that I've got a rambunctious rugrat of my own, I feel your pain. I also love you for it.
