hum.. kinda inspired by Hollyann's post about this...
my first time left alone, was technically babysitting, but my parents both had stuff to do, a nd i managed to convince them i could do it.. at 10 years old. that's right, 10! some may think this isn;t mature enough, the babysitting course though St. Johns you had to be 11. but my mom started off with small trips. 5-15 min trip to the store.. them moved up to taking a night off with my dad, phoning atleast once to check in on us.. then moved on from there.
one incident i remember from this, i wasn't really alone, but my mom had a night job, so i was suppose to watch my sisters. My mom woke up and moved to the couch, i asked if i could go out, she said yes.. little did i know. less then 5 minutes later, she was asleep on the couch and my middle sister followed me to my friends. which left my little 2-3 year old sister at home. alone with my sleeping mom. My dad found her playing in a puddle in the street. boy he was pissed.
Another incident.. My sister Has ADD we didn;t find this out till she was in junior high. so it lead to a trying childhood of a girl who would not listen or do anything you wanted her too. she had a stubborn streak in her to match a donkey.
Anyways, so she was going out, we were suppose to finish a list of chores, then we could play, i refused to do her work. she wanted to play, so she walked out the front door. i had a baby sister to watch so i banged on the window.... And put my hand through it.
it was bad too. so bad the doctors weren't sure if i would have use of my pinkie finger again. but they checked it out for glass, nothing but some small chips. and closed it up. they checked it out after it started to heal and didn't look s fucked up. turns out, the way i sliced it JUST missed some of the nerves that rung along that side of your hand. it however, did not miss them all. To this day, i have nerve damage on that hand from that, and another scar i have from a tin can lid.
I still can't hold things too tight. things constantly slip from my hand, or my hand grasps things too late after i tell it to. like stare at it nad tell it too. stupid hand. good for painting XD.
Anyways, those are the things that happened when i was left at home.
