1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
There are lots of cool things about being adult, for sure. However, being a kid is pretty rockin’ too. And I’m talking about the kid-kid age, where you’re too young for a ton of responsibility and your life is playing outside with a pretend snail family (yup that was me) or spending the day with Barbie, Ken and their dream house. I have so many fun memories from my childhood just like that. Sometimes I think it might be fun to just go play outside without a care in the world.
2. Dd you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
Rheanna Banana and Anna Anna. The Rheanna Banana is purely a rhyming thing, but the Anna Anna comes with a story. The church I grew up in was also the church my dad grew up in, consequently many many long time family friends, surrogate parents and grandparents. This nickname was given to me by a surrogate grandpa, who whenever he saw me would call me Anna Anna…because you know the Rhe part of my name is like ‘Re’, as in repeat. Repeat “anna”…so there you go. Anna Anna was born. And to this day I love it.
3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
The monkey bars man! Do you guys remember putting one knee over and then spinning forwards and backwards? Did anyone else do that?!!
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a ballerina, a singer, a mommy and even just like Mary Kay Ash (you know, like Mary Kay Cosmetics?). My mom sold Mary Kay for years and years and actually I had written that in on a form or something one day. My mom copied it and sent it to Mary Kay and she wrote me back. I still have that.
5. Did you participate in any school activities?
Band! Whoop Whoop! Band geek right here. I played the flute. Where are all my other band geeks!?!
6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
Gosh, I wish I could answer this about my sister because there are still ones that we tease her about and are an inside joke. I’m really trying to think here. I mean we have stories that we tell about being a kid…but I’m trying to think funny, like a specific story. I was pretty clumbsy. Now I’m going to have to ask if there’s something that sticks out to my parents at least. Mom, if you read this, comment!!
