  • Tomboy, bookworm, athlete. LOL, I read all the time, I also played soccer, baseball and basketball and climbed trees (where I would sit and read a book) and ride dirt bikes.

  • I was definitely a bookworm, but I was also a girly girl.

  • Bookworm, tomboyish...very much like kmath. I guess I was just a "well rounded" kid.

  • Tomboy all the way! I loved getting muddy, playing in the hay, swimming in the creek, etc. I had more matchbox cars then my brother did! Of course I think I aquired a few of his along the way....I also loved to read. By 5th grade I was reading Barbara Cartland (Oh the poor helpless woman who had to be saved by a strong man...)Got a D in reading one semester as the teacher told my mom I never read which was a laugh. I just never wanted to do the stupid book reports. Name, author, characters, what was the book about. 2nd semester I did all my reports in one week and turned them in one at a time. Had to be books from her stupid list as well. Never read one of them but ended up getting an A that semester.

  • Tom boy. I grew up with two brothers. I had cousins that lived next door, but we were always playing baseball together and being rowdy!

  • Bossy, girly girl, with a bit of drama queen thrown in for good measure. ;0)

  • I was never really a child. I was an adult and had adult responsibilities. I love to read and I did all the male things such as maintaining the car and mowing the lawn and stuff like that. Even at about 5, I am told I was a very sober child, though a little more outgrowing.
