This was too funny of an opportunity to pass up. In honor of back to school season, I just had to link up with one of my favorite mommy bloggers for a throwback of our own school days.
This is me on my first day of first grade in 1991...
I'm wearing a dress my mom made. (Gotta give that wonderful woman some credit!) And my hair was curled with those pink sponge curlers that I slept in over night. I know I was thinking, "I'm sooo pretty!" Hahaha.
Worse, is that a few months later I had a sudden obsession with wide brimmed hats--the ones that women wear to the beach and horse races. I wanted one with long colorful ribbons. So I made one out of a basket and wore it on my head. I'm pretty sure I went shopping at the commissary with my mom wearing this dress with a basket tied to my head. Umm, yeah.
Embarrassing childhood memories. But if I remember right, first grade was a pretty darn good year.
Hop on over to Jenny's blog to link up and see some more silly first day of school pictures from back in the day!
