Aunt Ann’s bed seemed to be so high off the floor. 0h I could get up on the bed and have some loves and knew Aunt Ann loved me and cared about me.
I played with Artile Toth and had a 1 year old birthday party. I also walked in the American Fork Steel Days parade and got a ribbon for by buggy wth my bear in it dressed up. I remember seeing my dog poisoned on the back porch and to this day I cannot understand how someone could hurt something so precious to me. I remember sitting in the tin tub in the back yard as my swimming pool.
Then the day came that my mother told me she was sorry she had me. I think I was three or four and I could not understand that statement. Too young to know you are not wanted and not know the reasons why; No matter how bad of a mother I was I always wanted my children and loved them. I am sure there were times they felt I did not want them but I did and, maybe, still do; but, they are precious to me and grow more so each day.
We moved into a new home and it felt so far away. Ralph Hunter lived on the corner and the Scotts lived up the road. There were fields with horses, and cows, and pheasants everywhere. It was fun to run and play. I had no brothers or sisters but would soon have one.
I can remember my Grandmother bought me a new pink dress and coat to go pick up my sister to bring her home. They laid the baby on my lap and she peed on my new clothes. I told them they could take her back because I did not want her. So much for my sister Leila. We are 4 years and a few weeks apart.
