Another Apron Trip in the Way Back Machine

Kid with the bowl cut says to herself, "I am smiling on the outside but inside I am crying. Why does mommy hate me so?"

Teenage Mother says in her head, "My life ended when you were born! Now wear this or it's the clothes hanger for you!"

"Mom, why do I have to wear this Dorothy Hamill hair cut?"

"Do you see what I am wearing KID? Like it and keep quiet. Now, when you wear this apron everyone will know for sure you are a girl!"

Photo Circa 1977. I think I had a hair cut just like that. And I was six years old. Wait no. I still had pigtails through first grade. My mom whacked my hair off in second grade I believe.

So I was riding the trend myself. I think at least a dozen people, that I can remember, asked if I was a boy or girl. Now THAT was humiliating.

All of a sudden I feel totally cool that I can say I had the same hair cut circa 1977! My Mom chopped my straggly long hair planting me right in the bowl-cut-crowd.

Love the Yosemite T-Shirt!

By the way, is anyone questioning why you would put flowers in the top of your apron?

Sweet! I have a photos of me around somewhere with that haircut too. I am wearing a cowl neck brown multi-striped top and white bell bottom jeans and I am in about 6th grade. It was Easter and I was hunting for eggs. Oh, the memories.

Wow that hair cut looks just like Nicky's current cut... *Makes note to tie him to a chair and trim it again* Okay, it's not thaaaaaaaaat hard to cut his hair, but it is darn close!

Nice do! My mom didn't want to deal with long hair EVER, so I always had short hair and was ALWAYS hearing people ask if I was a boy or girl. Talk about annoying and humiliating....probably til I was 10/11.

Cute! I think the fact she is putting flowers on the girl's chest is more :O to me. :) Great picture of you! I don't remember haircuts from when I was little. Pretty sure we ran wild with crazy hair.
