Utah teenager reveals diary from when she was 7 on social media
MAPLETON, Utah — Madie Cardon found her old diary from when she was in second grade and decided to tweet out some of her issues back when she was just 7 years old.
The 16-year-old’s elementary school secrets are out and going viral.
The installments from her 2008 life start with a Valentine’s Day crush on a boy named Riley.
The Utah teen and her sister stayed up all night to make an anonymous card for him only to make a devastating discovery.
Cardon learned Riley wasn’t crushing on her but her BFF Jessica.
Not giving up without a fight, she goes to work on a plan that would hopefully lead to Jessica’s demise.
She decided she was going to tell Jessica’s secret, that she wears Pull-Up diapers.
Cardon wrote she hoped that would make Riley leave Jessica and fall in love with her.
The elementary school saga ended with Cardon swearing off boys forever.
Posting one’s deepest, most private feelings takes guts; the ability to laugh about it later takes a real woman.
We wish Madie, Jessica and Riley all the best in the future… and are secretly holding out for the reality show.
Madie’s parents, Bryan and Robyn, told TODAY.com they had no idea how much drama was going on in their 7-year-old daughter’s life at that time.
“Madie used to be super shy around boys up until we moved to Utah two years ago,” Robyn Cardon told TODAY. “She has really come out of her shell and has quite a few guy friends.”
