For those who haven’t seen my Dear Diary posts before, a little explanation. This is my actual diary I wrote in for a full year, when I was 10 years old. I wrote every day, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, but it was all recorded. Names of relatives are only first initials with relationship in parentheses. I’ve typed the entries just as I wrote them, misspellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using categories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

Well, now…seems like I played so much I developed a headache. What on Earth did we play so much at everyday? I should have written it down, but guess I was too busy playing. 🙂 I know we played dress-up a lot. We’d get fancy dresses on and get our dolls, and have a tea party in the back yard. Do ten year old kids still do things like that in this day and age? I don’t know, but we sure had fun. Other things we did … jump on beds…yeah, we did that a lot, and got in trouble for it. In fact, that’s how I got my two top front teeth knocked out…by another kid’s head hitting me in the mouth while we were jumping on the bed. 😉 Good times…good times…
