Confessions: The childhood edition ... What a gem I was!

Taking it back ... way back ... Back into time ... (if this song doesn't start playing in your head then you missed out on the 90's)

Guess who was a nuisance as a kid??

So I thought I'd put a lil spin on my confessions and do a childhood edition ... This doesn't even cover half the crap I did as a kid. Anyway here we go ...

1. Once when I was 5, I stuck an eraser straight up into my nostrils and could not get it out. I'm talking a tiny eraser like you'd find at the end of a pencil! I. freaked. out. I'm talking screaming and running God knows where...

Smart kid I was! I was at school at the time and the teachers had to call my parents to calm me down. My sister who was in a higher class than I was, had to come to help the 5 year old drama queen that I was to calm down. It was a scene. A lot of tears and few hard blows of the nose and I live to tell the tale. Whadda wuss!

2. Speaking of screaming and running. When I was a kid my mum drove a Ford Laser. One day while my mum was driving my sister and I home from school, the car decided to overheat. I thought it was going to blow up and then we'd all be on fire (Clearly I watched way too much Rescue 911 as a kid). So when my mum pulled to the shoulder, I screamed, opened the car door and high tailed it down the side of the road. My mum had to abandon the overheating car and my sister to run after me. I was screaming bloody murder guys ... and running like a ninja!

3. I was nicknamed 'Ernie foot' by my biggest sister! haha its a name that stuck. You see, I kept growing but my feet stayed tiny. So we were watching Sesame Street and Ernie was in the bathtub singing "do the duck rubberduck duck rubberduck", he put his feet up ... and my sister said "Krys you have Ernie feet". Somehow that turned to 'Ernie foot' and it stuck. Thanks Ernie. Rubber duck to you too. (N.B. I actually like this nickname now)

4. I was that kid who told on my sisters to my parents. All the time! I was the youngest of three girls and good lord was I ever a nuisance. I would have sent me back where I came from if I were them. If they even stared at me too hard, I'd be like "I'm going to tell on you!" and in 5 .. 4 .. 3 .. "MUUUUUUMMMMMMYYYY!" And then they'd look at me like this:


5. Yeah that was me until the age of lets say 13 ... I say that was me until the age of 13 because I distinctly remember 13 year old me helping my big sister to sneak out and re-enter the house to go to a party. Yeah I was a rebel at age 13. Clearly.


6. I was spoilt rotten. Even I can admit that. Heck Ill admit I'm spoilt now and I can literally call on my parents for ANYTHING. I don't abuse it though and now that I'm older I spoil them right back! 

7. I was obsessed with Barbie dolls and probably had all of the major ones that came out. Every Christmas, birthday or holiday I wanted a Barbie. I had the Barbie board games too ... everything was Barbie. FUN FACT: My parents never bought me a Ken doll because Barbie was apparently too young to have a boyfriend. Jokes on them, my Barbies married and kissed several teddy bears .... those slores.


8. I also had a nintendo and my cousins had a sega. You know the old school ones. Yeah those. I played it all. the.time. when I wasn't playing with my Barbies of course. Basically I never went outdoors because inside was too much fun. Who remembers this:


9. On another note, I adored and looked up to my two older sisters so much. I wanted everything they had and to do everything they did. I used to make my biggest sister tell me Elmo stories all the time (Sesame Street was my fave show) and my best nights were the ones where she let me sleep in her bed with her! Ahhhh sisters ...


I loved these ... maybe my faves yet. I have so many stories to tell but that's all I got today!

  1. These confessions are hilarious! Somehow I managed to never get anything stuck up my nose, I did swallow a nickle once and choked on that real good. I can laugh about it now :D

  2. Lmao! My sister stuck a bead up her nose once when she was little and could not get it out. She didn't know how to blow her nose so finally my dad got it out with a vacuum! We still tease her about it to this day!

    And holy fucking Barbie, I was the Barbie queen! I just HAD to have every limited edition/celebrity/Disney Barbie as soon as it came out! Not even gonna mention the cars, playsets, clothing packs that I absolutely needed too! Lol.

  4. these are the best! running away from the car, hilarious! that barbie ecard made me spit my tea out of my mouth, lol. i had all of the kens, and took my brother's g.i. joes to be her sons (because they were smaller than barbie and ken, makes sense). i used to put ken and barbie 'in bed', put some paper towels over them (their bedding, mum was always like where is the effing paper towel disappearing to?) and turn around so they could do their bizness. haha.

  14. I honestly have the best mental visual about you running out of the car and your mother running after you! My mom would whooped my butt when she caught me. This made me laugh! I was the youngest of six i totally relate to so many of these!

  15. Booo I was an only child so I don't have sibling stories...doesn't mean I don't have some pretty good ones about the adventures I went on with my teddy bears. I had one year when I like barbie and I maybe collected about 15 dolls...then after that year, I did brain surgery on them or had them get into car accidents that made them end up losing a limb...I probably would have been classified as a troubled kid lol.

  23. This post has me cracking up! Picturing a little girl high-tailing down the road is hilarious! Although I'm sure your mom didn't think so at the time! Also, I still had my original Nintendo at home up until recently but I think my parents probably got rid of it by now.

    ReplyDelete
  26. ahh love this version of confessions!! And love the shoutout to Rescue 911! I was scared to carry scissors around because that episode where the kid runs into his sister while holding a pair of scissors scarred me for life! hahaha!

  27. It's my very strongly held theory that youngest children are abnormally spoiled (I was an oldest child...and my goodness is my baby sister the apple of everyone's eye!) haha!

    ReplyDelete
  28. i was a good kid, just real quiet and observant. still am! and i wasn't allowed to have ken dolls either.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ha ha ha!! Reading this and cracking up! I am the big sister of this crazy kid, and every word of this is true. In fact my personal favorite memory is the one of her jumping out of the car and running like 10 tigers were chasing her... because she thought the car was going to explode!! We were incredulous and (looooong afterwards) very amused!! Way too much TV!
    She was, and still is, an adorable little sister!
