Is that not the happiest girl in the world?
For today’s part of the May challenge, this is a favorite photo of myself on my first day of Kindergarten.
Just look at that outfit: new shirt and dress, matching pink socks and sandals, perfectly crimped hair (the crimper was pink), two evenly spaced barretts, perfectly poofed bangs, tiny stick on earrings, and a pink slap bracelet to top it off. I. had. it. together.
Man I loved that dress. I think I had wished it had pockets but it was perfect and I wore it as much as I could. I think this is one of the few days where my hair actually was crimped because my mom was always busy and I couldn’t do it myself. I do believe my dad did it for me once and I remember he was so proud of himself for it.
Those bangs. I had those bangs all the way to 4th grade. I could never get the poof just right on my own so my mom always had to do it. That is what began my love affair with hairspray.
Thinking back on this photo, I don’t think I’d ever been more excited for anything than my first day of kindergarten. I could not wait to go to school. I even had a new pink bike that I could ride to school so that was really the cherry on top of this whole awesomeness.
