Up until I (Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas) was 13, I had a pretty great childhood. At least the parts I remember. My dad was in the Air Force and we got to live all over the place. I was born in Germany and I even lived in Hawaii for 3 years. In addition to that, my parents are both Southerners, so we had a lot of the tradition that goes along with being southern. In other words, the food was amazing! One of the things we always had for Thanksgiving and Christmas was Southern Pecan Pie. Oh, it’s amazing. Really, really amazing.
Right now you may be distracted by the fact that I said “Up until I was 13, I had a pretty great childhood.” When I was 13, my parents got divorced. A bummer day for sure. I am the oldest of 3 kids in my family, so I didn’t have much of a childhood after that. I still got to do some kid things, but I had a lot of responsibility. It’s okay though. It made me who I am today and I am very grateful to my mom for all she did for us as a single parent. She worked hard. Even though she worked hard, we still got the yummy pie for holidays. So, all is well.
