Fun Monday #14


This weeks Fun Monday came from Robin this is what she her challenge was....

"Bloggers are notorious exhibitionists...we bare our hearts...we bare our souls...and sometimes...SOMETIMES...we bare our faces. It's not your face I'm interested in, though...it's YOUR HAIR! Pull out your old photo albums (in this digital age, that's like asking you to pull out your vinyl records, or, egads! your cassette tapes, lol. There's something wonderfully nostalgic about vinyl; there is NOTHING romantic about cassettes!) and find your WORST "BAD HAIR DAY" EVAH! If you're the unfortunate soul who has more than one, well then, post as many as you're willing."

Honestly I am not a hair person, myself. I have never put a lot of thought in it so there have been times you could say everyday was a bad hair day. I know I'm just not very girly that way. Never the less though I will give you some of my more embarassing shots that even I recognize are not so great. Also since I am a mom and always the one on the other end of the camera they are mostly from my much younger days....


don't you love the clothes? I had naturally curly hair and I don't think my mother really knew what to do with it so this is what it looked like most of the time. Honestly my family should be happy I cropped them out as some of theirs were much worse. Like my sister standing next to me with her knee high socks! I was about 3 in this picture.








Then we have me in 1st grade. Hmm do I remind you a little of Princess Leia from the Original Star Wars movies?? Thats what I think of when I see this picture. Again I was nice and cut my brother out.






Here is me in the 3rd grade. I don't know about that cheesy grin.... I'm not fond of this picture either even though Kenzie always says she likes it.




Hmm then I got tired of the curly hair and by this time I had been in gymnastics for several years. I was actually competitive and won alot of awards. The hair was easier shorter. But I think of it now and it was a bit dorky. I'm in the 6th grade here.


My friend Hannah and Everyone I knew was getting perms and I thought "hey theirs look cute! I should get one to." Hmm it didn't work out very well. My own naturally curly hair decided to do just the opposite of what the perm wanted it to do and it was just a big, puffy mess.




This last one in my defense it was morning and only a couple of weeks after Joshua got out of the hospitall. I thought it was cute to because its kind of a bad hair day for Izzak as well.




So there you have it. Honestly I looked for the worst I could find but I have spent more time on the other end of the camera even as a kid I loved taking pictures.

14 people had something to say:

Kila said...

A good variety! How fun. Your 3rd grade photo is so cute.

Pamela said...

the star wars look was the best!!

You look so much like our neighbors daughter I had to take a 2nd look.

nailgirl24 said...

Hhahahah you are a brave woman!! Seriously I dont have a scanner or you would look like a beauty queen compared to me lol.

my4kids said...

Kila, Thank you for you comment. I just don't like it mostly because I never smiled like that!

Pamela, I get that alot I suppose I have one of those faces that looks like alot of people.

Nailgirl, you need to get a scanner. I would love to see your pictures!

Beccy said...

Princess Leia, I had to do a double take!

Amy W said...

I like the Princess look!

Funny pictures...

Robin said...

Hey Terri, glad you decided to join in the Fun(Monday)! My favorite was first grade, too, but your first picture was a close contender.

If I took time going through my old pictures, I believe I'd find some similarities. Bad hair just goes with growing up, a rite of passage I suppose :).

Lots of pictures, lots of smiles--thanks!

ChrisB said...

You were a cute little blond and the princess leia look alike photo is straight from SWars. The one on the bottom right looks just like my niece and I have a photo of beccy that's also similar.

frannie said...

PortraitofPeter said...

Dare I comment on your blog + photo's? I guess I am waiting for the "No Hair Day"!!

I luv all the photo's and the hair styles too!!

Now how old did you say you were again?? Gotya!!

Have a good day.

my4kids said...

Peter, their would be no "no hair day" unless it was against my will!
I may not be a big "hair person" but I do pride myself in having it.

Steffi said...

Wow...many diffrent hairs!You looks really cute as you was 3 with your blond hairs.

Heather said...

You must have a lot of pictures Terri.
I don't really have any from when I was a kid... Just a few school pictures..... But then I had "coke bottle" glasses anyway... so I looked pretty goofy in all my pictures after grade one!

Wendy said...

They are all pretty good. WOW! I had some of the same styles. What were our mothers thinking? It is so fun to look back at some of that stuff.
