Just A Baby



check. the most beautiful baby in the whole wide world.

When I was little,

• I used to wonder if adults took off their clothes in the bathroom, before taking a bath.
• I wondered why I was born to be little and not as an already grown adult so I could do all the things adults do.
• I had great imaginations. I told a story of the creation before the creation of the world, when there was wind, one hand was blown here, another wind brought another hand, then a leg, another leg, finally a body, then God was made.
• I believed NEPA lived in the ceiling.
• I used to breastfeed my doll and make a face as though she bit my nipples, like I see nursing mothers do.

    Great pic.


    I remember growing up, my baby sister (who has the IQ of an Einestein) wanted to be a butterfly and then she wanted to be a chair when she grows up.

    :D

    I still tease her about it till now.

  10. Well, I did not have dolls but I had lots of teddy bears and no, I did not use them for school. I used them to play "doctor". I and my sisters used to cut them up, for real, with scissors and them sew them back up again, under "operation". So all our teddy bears had patches all over them.

    For school, I used my mother's flowers...hibiscus and those other red ones...the red ones that had "coke" in them... I used to flog the hell out of those flowers!
