3: When I was born it was winter and my mom was having a dream. And in that dream my mother said that she felt something was ripping out of her. And that's how my birth began. As soon as she awoke, she was in labor. She called my dad, who was at work at the time and as soon as she did he was there by her side. So after a short drive, they went to Rainbows babies and children hospital n Cleveland. During my birth my whole family was there, from my uncle to my grandma, and when they tried to talk to my mother when she was giving birth.She would yell and curse at them. And at 7:30; 2 days later. I was born. A right on time baby. My parents were going to name me Kamran but to them I seemed like the Tyler type. And to be original they put an “I” instead of a “Y” in my name. So I became Tiler Sharron Williams. | A normal birth

5: When I was in kindergarten and in North Carolina when I went through my first tornado. Though I was small, I can still remember the event partiality. What I can remember when I was in the art room painting flowers I believe, and the birds were chirping. But in an instant the chirping stopped. I mean all the noises outside stopped completely! Then the tornado alarm at my school went off. I wasn't scared, unlike the other kids, because my 13 year old friend told me to never be afraid of tornado's, just breathe and let it pass. So I did just that while it happened. Everyone crawled into the schools basement and went in the tornado crouch. Then an hour passed and the principal confirmed the tornado has passed. So we all went back to our classrooms and looked around as oddly nothing was out of place. But now I learned... The tornado had just passed right by us, literally! | This is not a drill

7: I can remember it now, the first time I ever went off the diving board I believe I was still taking swimming lessons and all and that day we were jumping off the diving board. I was scared of heights and that day I couldn't handle it at that time. So as days passed, I still refused to go off the diving bored, but on the 5th day my teacher wouldn't take it anymore. So she forced me onto the diving board. As soon as she did I got weak in the knees and a bit queasy. But my mom was there trying to cheer me on, along with the other “swim mates”. I began to sweat but after a while I jumped off it. And when I did everyone was cheering, even the life guard was. It made me feel better about the whole situation. But when my teacher asked me if I wanted to take another dive. I shook my head no and went home as fast as possible! | Just dive in!

9: The day when I went on my safari ride was very exciting! That whole day, my mothers boss, her boyfriend, my mom brother cousin and I ventured through a large pad of land. On that pad, there were animals like, buffalo's and goats e.c.t. So when we reached the buffalo section, it was very scary. I mean the buffaloes were twice as big as the car we drove in! And inside the car we had food for them that they could eat out of. I don't know if buffalo's have good sense of smell or not but when we drove by our first buffalo it followed our car and then as we speed up the buffalo began to run! And then other buffalo's fallowed it! I was scared but as for everyone else thought it was funny! So my mothers boss opened the window and told me to put the cup of food out the window with my hand, and as soon as I did that the buffalo's charged at my hand and stuffed their mouths into the cup. Their slobber covered my hands and forearm and everyone in the car except me laughed. Then when I thought they were done I took in the cup and put it in my lap. But as soon as I did one of them shoved their heads in the car! I ducked and screamed and after a few moments they left but not because they were done. It was because we ran out of food! That was the day I ever been around animals like that; the first time I went on a safari... And I think it won't be the last! | Buffalo Charge

11: I remember the time when I went to my first concert. It was the MJ Immortal tour, and it was like a circus but was devoted to Michael Jackson legendary singing and dancing. Though I did like Michel Jackson, I wasn't into big concerts like that. I mean I thought it would be embarrassing and all to go to such a thing with my mom!! So as she drove to the concert, I was dragging it the whole time I mean I liked Michel Jackson but my mother loved him! She practically grew up with him since they were both born near each other and she went to all his concerts... So I knew she was going to dance to the music and all that when the time came. So when we got there, I saw I wasn't alone, many kids we here there with their parents, but oddly didn't mind it as much as I did. A few hours passed and the concert was in its middle run. And of course my mom was dancing and acting like complete! But when I looked around the kids who were with their parents they were dancing with them! So...I breathed and started to dance with her. But, from that night. I don't think I will dance at a concert ever again. | Dancing Mom
