Drama Queen

I am a drama queen. (I am the one crying) sister is 19 months younger than me and she is one of the most laid back people I know. Look at her over  there..not a care in the world. Me on the other hand, freaking out because I didn't want to have my picture taken with Great Grandmother and Great Aunt who were 100 years old...(at least there is longevity in my family.) Can you blame me really? And, where were my brothers? Why were they not subjected to this torture?

I think I spent half my childhood in tears. Or yelling at someone. I was not easy to live with..I know this. I've apologized many times to my family for all that I put them through. But, at some point I realized, this is who I am. This drama crap is just as much a part of me as my blue eyes and my love of babies, books and the beach.

Now, what I am struggling with is dealing with another drama queen...who happens to live in the same house as me. Who is only 11.  But I am doing it. I've had my moment to's her turn now. I'm sure she'll apologize to everyone someday too.

* We do love this 11 year old drama queen more than anything and wouldn't change a thing about her!!!


  1. Ah yes, the justice of it all. I have a mini me at age ten. But the funny thing is, is that I really get her, but because of it I'm probably harder on her. I'm working on it though.
    Good Luck

  2. That's so funny, because I was exactly the same. There are so many pictures of me on family outings where I'm scowling or looking away.
    And now my little Lily, who will be ten on Sunday, is exactly the same. My Aunt Sally exclaims every time she sees her, "There's little Jenny."
    What goes around comes around.
    But I am truly dreading her becoming a teenager. Let's vow to commiserate about it in 3 years, shall we?

  3. Turn about is fair play. Isn't that what "they" say? Well, your pic makes me laugh aloud!

  4. What goes around comes around. Better be careful! Hannah is darling and deserves to be dramatic...after all she is living with all those men!!!
