Growing up I always had the youngest parents in the class. For some reason this embarrassed me to no end.
I can honestly remember in kindergarten coming home from school because the kids sitting at my table (remember how you sat at tables in kindergarten) all had older parents than me.
When most kids grew up listening to oldies, I grew up listening to Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, and Prince. Seriously. I knew every word to 'Beat It' (or maybe it was just the 'Beat It' part)
It wasn't until I got older that I realized how great it was to have young parents.
My parents have worked hard to provide for my sisters and me and I am so thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for us.
Me with my parents. 1984. (as if you couldn't tell from the hair)
My mom was able to stay home with me as a baby and Kati wasn't born until I was four, so for four years it was just me, mom and dad. So mom and I got to have fun all day long. I love this picture of us.
