Speaking of back in time, a while ago I spent a weekend organizing my bookshelf by genre and author (okay so I'm still a little nerdy) and I found this little book that I made when I was in first grade (or was it second grade). Regardless of what grade it was, I remember feeling disappointed that I didn't have enough time to finish it, but also being so impressed by my work. It's super cute and I still think it's pretty genius. (ha ha ha! I'll take a humility pill in a second.)
Our teacher showed us this book and then put us to work. I made little lady bug prints all over my page and then in the middle wrote a little poem that goes like this:
I can hug my mother
I can hug my dad
but I can't hug a

Okay, laugh if you want, but I think I'm going to get it framed I've decided.
