The Mom Lady Person Meme


ME has no idea why! ME means, she's just a Mom Lady Person! But OK.

The Furry Bambino's Mom Lady Person tagged me for this. Everyone should play along!

a) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos OR
b) post 10 facts about yourself and NO photos
c) post a childhood picture of yourself.

Well, I'll just do a little of each

1. I was born in Syracuse, NY

Me when I was probably about 18 months old. I was bald until I was 1.

2. I used to be a morning person until I was about 2 or 3, when my parents would yell at me at 5am for standing up in my crib and screaming "GOOD MORNING! ISN'T ANYONE GOING TO SAY G'MORNING TO ME?" Now I'm a night person.

Me at about age 4.

3. My hair was so curly when I was growing up that it was painful to comb. It is now stick straight. (and currently blonde)

4. Speaking of my hair, it was turning grey when I was 18.

5. I used to tan very easily. Life lesson number 251: when in Florida do NOT fall asleep on the beach. You will end up with sun poisioning and destroy the pigment in your skin. I have been a faithful devotee of wearing sun screen all year since I was 17.

6. My first career was Nursery School Teacher - 2 years

7. My 2nd career was working with computers (back in the OLDEN days before hard drives bigger than 256k). 1 year

8. My third career was working with the mentally and physically handicapped (10+ years)

9. My fourth career is working with computers again - I am now a Certified Information Systems Security Professional. (10+ years in the IT field)

10. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Think I will figure it out before I retire?

Do you have to grow up?

Cory said...

I'm sure that you do not have to grow up. My mom hasn't done it yet, so why should you?

Reese =^..^= said...

Nice getting to know you a little better, my FB friend.

Jaya said...

Those are great photos- what an adorable looking kid you were!

Parker said...

Mommy says it's more fun not to grow up!

The Creek Cats said...

Pawsome meme! We loved learning more about you! Our mom only lasted 2 months as a nursery school teacher...haha! She still has no clue what she wants to be when she grows up either!

FrecklesandDeb said...

What adorable pictures! We've found it's best not to grow up. You gotta keep your options open!

The Island Cats said...

This was fun learning more about you, mom lady person! We think it's interesting that your hair was so curly as a child, but stick straight now!! And the growing up bit...why grow up??

Furkidsmom said...

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Your mom's funny.

But her experience with sun poisoning isn't funny. What a terrible experience.

Princess said...

mom used to have very curly hair too. She used to cry when her mom combed it, so she used to hide so maybe her mom would forget.
You were adoorrrrrable when you was tiny.
What interesting jobs. I can imagine each job has given you some wonderful memories, working with handicapped is always rewarding, and nursery school must have been like playing with little clowns all day.

love and purrs to all of you and have a marveroonie week-end

Princess said...

ps: I hope the heart procedure went okay. both of my moms parents have had it done. sounds scary but works pretty good.
love and purr

Eric and Flynn said...

That was interesting reading what your Mom Lady Person has done. Our mum sez it is impossible to grow up when you've got crazy cats running around. Don't know if she means us or you.

The Crew said...

Ahhh, another one with curly hair. How did yours turn straight! I've been fighting with mine since I was old enough to do my own hair. Now, some springs I chemically straighten it just so I won't look like I'm wearing a frizzy clown wig all summer.

Regarding standing in the crib and yelling at 5 am........
We think there's a little Meezer in you, Mom Lady Person!

Whitey said...

Mom has always used sun block. Well, akshully, pre-sunblock she'd wear hats and long sleeves or stay in the shade because she just freckles, burns and peels otherwise. Not good.

IT is an excellent field to be in nowadays!

Zeus said...

I say do it all. Do whatever makes you happy until it stops making you happy. I loved the photos of you!

The Furry Kids said...

Mama has curly hair and it's still curly. :/ She also refuses to grow up, but that's another story...


PS - We are purring and purraying for your grampa.

Daisy said...

Angus Mhor said...

Angus Mhor said...

I meant to ask, how is Grampie? I hope he came through his procedure well.

WhimPurr's Whim and the Whiskers said...
