My parents used to say that I was a big girl now and could clean up my room by myself Yet when we went to the restaurant I was too little to sit without a booster seat I never could figure out why I was too big for somethings and that same day be too little for others With this story twenty years later I think I figured it out If you are eleven years old how can you be ten nine eight seven six five four three two or even one Pondering that statement I seen myself when I was eleven in a classroom full of kids Sandra Cisneros Eleven she states When you are eleven youre also ten nine eight seven six five four three two and one What helped me figure out the meaning to this quote was the comparisons that she used to describe it The way you grow old is kind of like an onion or like the rings inside a tree trunk or like my little wooden dolls that fit one inside each other each year inside the next one This quote made me think what exactly I was feeling into a simple sentence Little Rachael seems confused on how old she should be after a confrontation with her teacher She insists that there is a part of us that is still one two three four and so on As I was reading I felt a great deal of pain for this girl How helpless she seemed and disgusted by the fact that the sweater was not hers The embarrassment she was feeling as all her classmates were watching not knowing what they were thinking It was just about my turn to read a passage in the history book aloud my whole body felt different My focus shifted from history to panic Scared that I was going to mess up read the wrong paragraph or not read fast
