Younger Than Most

I’m really good at complaining.

I was born in December in Maryland. In Maryland, if you turn 5 before the second semester of kindergarten, you can start. My mom had the decision of holding me back until I was 5 or starting when I was 4. So, being the smart mother that she is, she chose the latter.

Though it’s great that I’m a year ahead of everyone else my age, it’s had some setbacks. Here are a list of things I couldn’t do when my other friends could:

Wear makeup

Shave

Get my permit

Get my license

Get a car (don’t have one of those yet, actually)

See R rated movies

And when I turn 21: drink

It’s funny, I always complain about being younger, but there are so many benefits! Mostly impressing future employers, I suppose. But overall, I’m happy my mom started me early.
