"When I was in Kindergarten, I lived with my grandmother and attended the elementary school where she was a custodial worker. Every day she packed my lunch, did my hair, and made sure it looked pretty. I still have a picture of me when I was 5 years old, wearing bangs and two pigtails with little smiley faces on them. We used to argue every Sunday when we were getting ready for church, because I didn't want to wear a dress. I always lost the argument though. According to her, little girls looked pretty in dresses, and I was going to wear one. My granddaddy was still living then, and I remember sitting on his lap watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I still love that story. I watch it every year because it reminds me of him."
