Sample:

Once I was a small baby
Once I was a curious toddler
Once I was a bossy kindergartener
Now I am so much older
Once I was the pride of the playground
Once I was the sprightly gymnast
Once I was the backjumping cheerleader
Now I am so much older
Once I was the protesting hippie
Once I was the college coed
Once I was the grad school grind
Now I am so much older
Once I was the first year teacher
Once I was the coast to coast consultant
Once I was figuring out retirement
Now I am so much older
