Kindergarten. 1st picture day. I was so excited the day we got the pictures back. My teacher gave them out just as we were going out the door. I ripped open the gummy flapped envelope on the way to the bus, and was immediately crushed. I couldn't believe they'd even printed this picture, let alone sent it home with me. I smiled CROOKED! My mom of course said it looked cute. I still remember her friends pulling out drivers license pictures to show me to make me feel better.
OK, I was in Jr. high in the '80's. Do I really need more of an explanation? I will have you know that it took a good 40 minutes in the bathroom to achieve the perfection of those bangs. Even my 6 month old brother is cracking up at me.
Gravies Gravies Gravies. Have you seen "Bedtime stories" with Adam Sandler yet? Why did they call him Bugsy again? All my pictures of around this time look like this. The comforting thing is I'm consistent. The more things change, the more they stay the same. It's all good, I've got cute kids to take pictures of now. p.s. that hideous couch was in a condo we rented for 6 months while we looked for a house. I can make fun of myself, but no one is allowed to believe I'd pick that thing out!
