20 years ago: Cute, skinny college girl who didn't want any kids, but to travel the world.
10 years ago: Old ugly fat mother of 2, who didn't like turning 30 at all. But I had a brand new Honda Odyssey. I loved that Honda!
5 years ago: Just moved out here to the farm. I loved moving out here. We had 5 kids, a new (used) truck, chickens, and the Honda. I miss the Honda.

20 years ago I was a young college student at the age of 20 I remember whining that I was halfway to 40!!!

10 years ago I was the mother of a six year old and a six month old. We had just moved into our current house and I was caring for my dying mother. She had just gotten the pancreatic cancer diagnosis and would only live until March 1st.

5 years ago I was a SAHM with a middle schooler and a kindergartener. I was home all day with two little boys.

Funny how different things can be in just a few small years.

20 years ago I was 14 and in grade 9. I was about to start dating a loser boyfriend that just crushed my heart a few months later (he was so not worth the tears).

10 years ago I was 24, and had just had my third baby in as many years.

5 years ago I was 29 and had just given birth to the most demanding child ever that took up every minute of every day.

20 years ago I was still in High School, loving the fact that I got out of school to go to the football games and didn't really do anything (Pep CLub) but still got out of class.


10 years ago I was mom to 1, barely pregnant with #2, just moved into our first real "house". High hopes for the future.


5 years ago I just turned "old". Had 5 kids, living in a dump. Thought life couldn't get any worse (boy was I wrong).

What a difference just a few years make.

20 years ago I was 12 and in the sixth grade. I had just met my bff Tammy that year. That year I had a fun adventure in which I attempted to jump onto the spinning merry-go-round, overshot my goal, and ended up being dragged upside-down to the slushy mud under the merry-go-round. Good times.

10 years ago I was 22. I had been married less than a year and my husband and I were both in college.

5 years ago I was 27 and had two kids, ages 3 and 1. In March we would move out of the little apartment we had lived in for almost five years and into a duplex with like three times more space. Awesome.

20 years ago: I was 7 years old. 2nd grade in my small North Dakota town. I loved school and was in ballet, tap and jazz classes, gymnastics, and had just started piano lessons. I was busy little girl!

10 years ago: I was a senior in high school. I was a band geek. I also was in all sorts of school activities, my favorites being speech and drama. I was such a goody-goody but I did like to stay out really late with my friends, usually just hanging out. I was not a partier!

5 years ago : I was happily married and expecting our 3rd child. I had a few good friends but spent most of my time just home with my babies. Pretty much the same person I am now just more kids and in a new location.

20 years ago I was 12 and in middle school. I was that awkward 12 year old that was the last to have her 1st AF and wanted to so bad! Funny now that I'd be fine never having AF again!

10 years ago...I was working on my 2nd bachelors degree, was 22, dating my now DH and living with a horrid roommate. I was working as a H.S. registrar while I finished up nursing school.

5 years ago...I was 27 still breastfeeding my 2nd child, we hadn't bought our first house yet and I was now an experienced L&D nurse. At that point, I thought that there was only a slight possibility we'd have anymore children!!

20 years ago... I was just about to turn 8

10 years ago... I was just about to turn 18, was nearly finished with high school, and had everything in order to move out the day I turned 18 (which did)

5 years ago... I was either hanging over the toilet or hanging over a bucket puking! That's all I did.. I was pregnant with Noah and didn't go more than 10 minutes at a time without throwing up for the whole pregnancy.
