Mom just bought me a jurnal! This is my first part that I have ever rote. I think I will like it. I can rite funny things, sad things, and other things. It is my birthday today. I just turnd six! It was fun. I had angl cake with strawberrys. I do not reelly no how to spel cuz I am little. I can spel my nam. Katy.
I have a friend. Hes a boy. His name is Jon. Hes reelly nice. We gonna get married when we turn ten. I dont reelly no how old you have to bee to get married but we have planned it. We gonna get a BIG house and have LOTS of muney. Momma and her friends laf at us but we are reelly sereeus. Sined, Katy
I was reading things in my journal. I laugh. My spelling was so bad and Jon and I stopped being friends. I don't hang out with boys anymore. I stay with my girl friends and do cool things. I don't know how I ever thought I would marry him. I mean... EWWW. I'm doing good in school. I get A's in almost everything. I want to wear makeup but Mom says I'm too young? I also want to put black nail polish but she says maybe when I'm a teen. Being ten is so awful. Signed, Katy
Mom let me wear makeup today! I think it looks really cool. I wish I were a teen. Then I could be in sports. Twelve is such a stupid age - you can't do anything but I'm mature enough to. My grades aren't so good. They're better than the rest of my class but I get mostly B's now. It's so hard to get school done - it's much more fun to have sleepovers. Katy
I'M DATING SOMEBODY! HE'S LIKE TALL AND LIKE FUNNY AND STUFF. MOM LET ME WEAR BLACK NAIL POLISH. IT'S LIKE COOL. His name is Taylor. I think Jon hates me now. He has this gorgeous coppery hair and he has ABS! Seriously, he beautiful. I'm finally in a sport. I've joined volleyball. It's sweet. Katy
I'm driving a lot now. I think it's so funny. Ever since Taylor left the school I've barely thought of him. I think Jacob likes me. I have a crush on Dak now tho. I have a phone too. I hardly have time to write in my journal anymore - I'm so busy with sports and my friends. Also, one of the boys in school is in trouble with the police. My grades have gone way down. Katy
I'm so embarrassed. My grades are so shaming. I wish I would've tried harder. College is so difficult - I don't know any of the math. Dak and I are really serious. We've been thinking a year from now would be a good wedding date! I don't know if we'd want kids. Katy
I had my first drink today. I hated it. I am never drinking alcohol again. Katy
Dak and I got married!!! Katy
I've had so little time to write! Alyssa was born. She is so adorable - I love her so much. Dak and I are closer than ever. Katy
Oh God. I don't have words. Dak and I split up. He left the house just an hour ago. I'm a wreck and poor Alyssa is scared. I feel so bad for her - she really loves him. Katy
I got Alyssa a journal for her seventh birthday. I hope so uses it reverently. I am homeschooling her. She needs a better education than I gave myself. Me and another guy, Cameron, have been together and he and Alyssa really enjoy each other. I love him but I need to be sure that he is good for my daughter. She is more important to me than anybody. If she doesn't like him - I cannot have a relationship with him. Katy
Alyssa got married! Cameron and I are so proud of her. I think the homeschooling did her good. We both adore the guy - he's such a sweetheart. What makes me laugh is his name is Jon. I remember him. I really thought I would marry him. How differently things turned out. I'm sure for the better. Katy
Oh, good god, I'm a grandmother! Baby Jake Anderson Perry. He is so adorable. I could go on and on. Alyssa would like me to homeschool him - I'm so proud and flattered. It made my day. She really does appreciate me. Some days I would wonder if she did. Katy
