Normally I Was A Well-Dressed Child

My Mom had a good laugh about one of my favorite childhood photos I posted:

And I captioned it, "This is my cousin, brother, and me (on the right). Where are my brother's pants? Were half shirts for toddlers "in" back then? And why is my fly open?"

In her defense, she said:
1. That shirt did fit you but just needed to be pulled down.

2. Your brother never really did like to wear pants.


I thought I should show proof that normally my brother and I were well dressed children:



Hairstyles... now that's a different story.

  2. I love the new picture in your sidebar!

    Consider yourself lucky. I don't think there's a childhood photo of ME where I wasn't wearing horrid plaid bellbottoms. And the hair... LOL How on Earth did our mothers manage to cut our hair so straight? It's like they had a magic ruler & scissor combo.

  3. These pictures crack me up. You look just like Noah in that last picture. I wonder if Nate's little boy will look like him. Oh, and I do love the side bar picture!

  12. Ok, first -- that new picture of you and Ivy is PRECIOUS! Oh my goodness, I love it.

    Second -- you can totally tell we are the same age because I wore the same types of clothes and had the same hairstyles. Thank you Dorothy Hamil. ;)

  18. I love looking at old pictures of me and my siblings. My glasses always looked like they were eating my whole face, and I refused to wear tights to I have on fancy "church" dresses and white ruffle socks. I looked like a hot mess.

    The new profile picture of you Miss Ivy is divine. She is so adorable.

  19. I'm loving the old posts. It's fun to be able to read some of the older posts from before I was a regular reader.

    I'm especially love today's pics because I can totally see how much your kids look like you.
