This Is: Me As A Kid

This week's This Is theme is super fun! I'm surprised at just how many photos I have of myself as a kid...must've swiped them all from my mom's house, heehee.

<-----This is itty bitty me with Santa. I dunno how old I was in this picture, 4 I think-------------------->
I loved Cabbage Patch dolls, and pretty princess things. My mom sewed a lot, and I wore many an outfit that she made for me. Course, those are the pictures I left at my mom's. This is me when I was four ------------------>

<------------ (age 5) This is my Kindergarten picture. Notice the dimples? They carried on to my boys. That string around my neck is my house key.
(Third Grade, 8 years old. Yes, it's mislabelled)------------------------>
It's starting to look like I had a thing for blue, but Pink was my chosen color. Honest. I didn't have glasses until I was 9 years old, and in the fourth grade. Thankfully, that picture is at my mom's, and I can be spared the mortification of sharing my first pair of plastic framed thick Pink-that-transitions-to-blue rimmed frames.
The blue dress in this fourth grade photo is one I wore repeatedly for years, and can be seen in at least 3 of my school photographs. I actually still have it, packed away.

<----------- 6th grade (11years old) Notice the big frames on my glasses...a trend that would carry on into my later years, until I smartened up a bit. Gawd...just look at those bangs... Look, it's the blue dress again! That gives you a clue as to how big I had gotten. --------------------->
Dunno when this last one was taken, no clear memory of which year. Could be 7th. No clue...stupid big framed glasses. *shudders* Yeah, my childhood was for sure over between the summer of 7th & 8th grade. I spent a lot of time that summer at my friend Amber's house because my mom was in the hospital.
Y'all are lucky I was close to a scanner....I might've been forced to get creative! LOL
So, what did you look like as a kid?

lol great pics!

In all my pics I wondered who dressed me!

In all of my pics I had frizzy, out of control hair, mostly because my mom didn't like using products. The day I discovered mousse and hair gel, my life was transformed. I was actually happy, for the first time, to have naturally curly hair.

What a striking smile! I love the blue dress in the second phot, I would have loved to have had a princess dress like that. I had a bridesmaid dress I felt pretty in I remember. I love the glasses, glassed like that are back in the wind now arn't they? I think they look cool!
