Time to go for maximum cringe-worthy embarrassment on this weeks Flashback Friday link up with Cathy at The Camera Chronicles.
Taking inspiration from Cathy’s school days post, and prompted by the kids bringing home brand new school photos, I am doing what I have so far avoided and sharing my all-time worst school photo.
The other day Miss Fourteen came home with what she declared was her worst school photo EVER. (Dramatic teen emphasis). This is the photo, which in my unbiased opinion shows a very pretty girl in year nine:
She refused to believe me when I insisted she looked good. So to make her feel better, and indeed to give everyone a laugh, I showed her my own year nine school photo. It looks like this:
Complete with ultra 80′s birds nest fringe, the best pyramid shaped bob that my Mum’s backyard hairdresser could manage, orthodontics, and the very definition of the word awkward. In fact if you were to look up the word in the dictionary you would find this photo.
And I don’t really think there is a whole lot more to say after that photo. If I was extremely
vain shallow petty I could share my next years school photo, sans dental metalwork and with much better hair and skin, but I was still nowhere near as pretty as my daughter is now.
Which doesn’t suck at all.
Have a good weekend all,
P.S. And to everyone who has ever said how much she looks like me and wondered why I didn’t seem to agree, now you know why
