This is about a very special Christmas story with my family. When I was little I never wrote a letter to Santa ever telling him what I wanted. Every year I would get the most cool presents & this is one of those special times.I was 8 years old we had just moved to West Chester Ohio from Bowling Green Ohio. My parents in Bowling Green found a really kind,caring babysitter, they wouldn't leave me with just anyone. So when we moved here they hadn't found one yet to watch me while they did Christmas shopping.
Here's how the story goes I am 17 years old & I was working at Kings Island Paramount Amusement park. While working there I made a lot of friends,that I either worked with or just hung out with. There was this guy that I worked with his name is Marc. Well I went to go pick him up at his house because he asked me to take him to a friends house. I of course said sure why not.
1-Hi Everyone my name is Tara Firman I am 46 years old always lived in Ohio the "Heart of it all" state.By the way if you don't feel like reading all about me jump down to paragraph 3. I've been dealing with weight issues since I was 10 years old or so. I was packing on 10 pounds every year. My mom tried helping me she took me to a doctor they found out my thyroid was borderline. I had to take a pill to regulate it & eat not only 3 meals a day but snacks too. It was kind of embarrassing because my mom told my 4th grade teacher mrs.Stamper.She informed the whole class that I would be eating before lunch & after. My classmates thank God were actually very nice,no bullies & understood my health dietary needs. I wasn't losing at least I don't think I was.
I come from a family of a brother,sister, & of course mom & dad I'm the oldest. Here's a funny story that I'm sure will make a lot of people laugh. Ok so here's a day without my dad summer time because he's out of town on business. It's 2 Pm & my mom was really tired she said,"Tara would you please watch after your brother & sister while I take a 10 minute nap." I said, "Okay" my brother Jason who was 3 at the time was near the fireplace playing with his toy cars. We were all in the family room,mom was on the couch & I said,"Where's Tricia?" Mom said,"She's upstairs." So I went upstairs to get her to bring her down stairs so I could watch both of them while my mom rested on the couch. By the time I got back down stairs with my sister who was 2 at the time by the way I'm 13. My brother was playing with his cars however he had gotten into the fireplace that hadn't been cleaned yet & soot was all over the carpet & the bricks of the fireplace. I said,"Oh no MOM" She said,"What?" then opened her eyes & saw the mess. She said,"I thought I told you to watch your brother & sister?" I was like um okay duh I was thinking would never dare say that out loud but was thinking it. I said,"Mom I went upstairs to get Tricia,because you told me to watch both of them." She said,"Ok I'm done with my 5 minute nap"So she got up off the couch to clean up the mess he had made.
