As you get older, the world around you continues to remind you how long you've been on this planet. Sometimes it's a friendly reminder and other times it's a giant punch in the gut! This one left a big black and blue mark! During the 1994-95 school year I had a great job at a day care center where I was a teacher's assistant in the 4 & 5-year old class. Can you see where this is going!? Yes, this was one of the girls that was in my class! Apparently she went on to become a model and these pictures are from a magazine, where she's also on the cover. Since these are going to be in a magazine I'm sure her folks won't mind me posting them here for the 7 or 8 of you that drop by here still! This girl used to sit on my lap while I read her "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" and "Cookie Monster and the Magic Cookie Tree". Twelve years later she's trottin' `round the globe doing photo shoots for magazines and I'm still reading "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" and "Cookie Monster and the Magic Tree!"
Moral of the story: I should have become a model.
