DEPENDS ON WHO YOU ASK

Question Of The Week 1-28-13

How I saw myself.  My siblings would say otherwise:)


What type of kid were you (e.g. spoiled, rebellious, well-behaved, quiet, obnoxious...)?

27 comments:

  1. I was quiet and well-behaved, but somewhat inwardly rebellious. :)

  2. Just like Lynn. :D

    But I was also neurotic, sad and knew there was something just not right about me.

  3. Quiet and well behaved "children should be seen and not heard" because of that fear of being beat with the belt. Then the rebellion hit and wow was I not well behaved.

  4. Lynn -- And surely the day came when you were outwardly rebellious.

    LL Cool Joe -- Sorry for your convoluted childhood. You tuned out so well despite your frustrations.

    Always Nesting -- It is difficult to imagine being beaten as a child. However I was pampered and still rebelled. Your rebellion seem justified but don't know where mine came from.

  5. I'd say I was well-behaved but I am sure my brother would say I was spoiled.

  8. I am sure that you were awesome. Me on the other hand was not as good looking as my brother and still remind him that he got gaagaed over more than me. LOL

  10. I was the youngest of 7 and way too well behalved.
    I never had a curfew and was always home and in bed by 11:00. I could have gotten away with murder because my Mom and Dad were 44 and 45 when I was born so when I hit 16 they were like I am now, tired and asleep by 10:00.

  11. Oldest of 6. Bossy, in charge, well behaved and Mom's favorite;)

  12. Ummm...I think I was bossy. Wait... I'm still bossy.

  13. Jeanie -- My older brother WAS the spoiled one. We called him Saint Jim because he could do no wrong.

    Chatty Crone -- You still strive for that don't you?

    Riot Kitty -- "No surprise" for sure:)

    Lucy Stern -- Look at you showing up on my blog! Yea!

    Munir -- My sis and I were that way.

    G.B. Miller -- It is difficult to think of you as "blah". You really had them fooled didn't you?

    Cliff -- I should have asked everyone for their sibling placement. As a youngest child, I too watched and learned. AND I did get away with murder...well not actual murder...don't call the law.

    Charlotte Crawley -- Usually the oldest daughter has to work the hardest and sounds like you must have with five younger siblings.

    Kay -- No comment:) LOL

  14. as the oldest of 4 I was responsible and a caretaker
    my parents were so neglectful that I was grown beyond my years
    I did have a rebellious period in my teens but even then I was always kind and careful

  15. I was the middle girl out of six kids (3 and 3). My mother always said I was her most rebellious, but I think my younger sister was worse than me. I think I'm kind and thoughtful, fun loving, caring. My family may beg to differ. As you can see, I'm very full of myself, lol.

  16. I think I was 'pampered' when I was a kid and now I'm amazed at how much I pampered others :)

  17. Hey it is Monica and Rob!!! we have a new blog!!!!!!!!!

  18. As the 4th of 5 I was the introvert. When I spoke up folks bobbed me over the head or made a scene- n I just learned not to mess with them unless I had too! I rarely got in trouble.

    I have worked to overcome my tendency, n do speak up alot now when with my sibs.

  19. Dianne -- You sure are a wonderful caregiver for Hope:) No neglect there.

    Bonnie -- You ARE kind, thoughtful, fun-loving and caring and I'll argue with anyone who says differently.

    Shionge -- Pampered or pamperer, that is the question:)

    Rob and Monica -- Do my eyes deceive me? Are you really back? WooHoo!!!

    Snaggle Tooth -- It is difficult to think of you as an introvert. The youngest child, I speak too much when with my siblings.

  20. Hi Cousin! Sorry to see you have so much to deal with in your life right now. Have you looked at Bennights Unite lately? I just put up a biographical sketch I found on Lizzie and Tandy. You should check it out.

    As for your question of the week, I was all of the above, but predominantly very shy and spoiled.

  21. Oh how I laughed when I saw the pic and read how you saw yourself! I was a quiet, well-behaved kid but we all were because my dad would have killed you if you weren't!

    How did I see myself? I wanted to be an actress, dancer, singer and thought I'd be good at all of it. But my main goal was to be a mother with a little baby in my arms like my dolls. And that dream came true and I feel so blessed.

  22. Quiet and (usually) well behaved

  23. Inquisitive, stubborn, quirky, sensitive, somewhat outgoing...that was me, and somehow I'm not that much different today. :)

  24. Lorraine Nielsen -- I am so glad t hear from you and will try to find the post right away. Yes we are being put through the wringer right now with remodeling both to our home and to our bodies! LOL

    Belle -- My mother was the task-master in our home, but she only had to give us "the look" and we quickly became well behaved. I am happy that your dreams came true.

    JeanMac -- You are trying to trick us with the "well behaved" comment, aren't you?

    Ileana -- It seems to me that you are exactly that today! LOL

  25. I'm trying to find Tandy Kidd Cox's parents right now. Do you happen to know their first names or anything about them?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lorraine -- That is the biggest family mystery. I don't even have a clue to offer you. We did know that he was raised by the Tobeys. I think he was in the Civil War or am I confused? Guess I better check his age at that time. Have forwarded the information from the website to all my family and there is much excitement. That article was thrilling. My email address is granan10@aol.com. I have lost yours.
