“Getting to know you, getting to know all about you”… Sing it like Julie Andrews!

Growing up, the Ott family did a lot of moving around…which meant a lot of new schools, new friends, new teachers, new houses, new bedrooms, new grocery stores, new addresses and phone numbers to remember, new… I’ll stop there.  I was not a big fan of starting new schools.  I would cry and cry and be sick to my stomach.  My poor mother.  Anyways, I vividly remember going to my first school assembly at my new school in the second grade and them playing this song (Getting to Know You from the King and I) over and over.  To this day, this song makes me sick to my stomach.  Just thought you all would like to know!

Over the next few days, I will be posting Getting to Know Allison entries (what do I call them? posts, diary entries, information only my mom and cousins are going to read?) … Get excited.  Julie might return as Fraulein Maria with These are a Few of My Favorite Things – Allison edition.


  1. All love shifts and changes. I don’t know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time.
