Throw-Back to School


In honour of a successful back-to-school week for my little boy, here are a couple of shots of me around Grade 1 and Grade 2. My parents used to take us for those studio shots (they probably bought Sears packages for us) every six months.

Here I am in Grade 1 - I'm liking the pink textured turtleneck. I remember wearing that top a lot, the itchy polyester feel of it on my skin more comforting than uncomfortable. Not so much the haircut though. Can you tell my mother did the honours?



This picture was taken when I was in Grade 2. I was very much into jumpers that year (actually, probably for much of my childhood and adolescence). I suspect I may have lost some teeth, hence the closed mouth grin. Shiny cap of hair, though. It grew in quite nicely. Too bad it now has the texture of a horse mane. Albeit a coloured horse mane.

OMG - I can totally see Liam in you, Karen. Especially the first photo! It never struck me before that he looks particularly like his mother, but now I see it!

OMG family adventure--you took the words right out of my mouth---except for me the second picture in the red jumper I thought it was Liam dressed in drag...Wow the resemblance is incredible. I find that people tend to think my kids look like my dh until I show them pics of me at the same age my kids are...

I thought it a bit uncanny when I found these too! Dressed in drag- bec, you're too funny! Ian's in denial - he sees the resemblance but doesn't think it's that striking! I suppose he's biased ... the other way LOL! The G girl is ALL him.

OMG! I have a school pic where I look like you in the second pic!!

Cherry's right...Maybe all Chinese girls look the same when they're little! LOL! ;)
