Tuesdays With Rita: Picture Day

Do you remember picture day in elementary school? I don't remember the days but through the pictures I can just see what Mom was doing to my hair. It's funny that second grade I went to live with my grandparents and that's when I have the smooth little pixie. I don't have a fourth grade photo but I must have put my foot down sometime in there because I have a smooth cut in fifth grade. She obviously got to my bangs though. Oh my. It was near the end of third grade that I got my glasses. They stay in my pictures until I turn 16 when I finally got contacts.
I do remember the teenage angst of the photos from junior high and highschool. Days of deciding what to wear and then hours of fighting the hair in the morning.
Now if my hair lays down it is good. Too many other things to do.
Share some photos with us.
