Recently I downloaded Picasa's free software onto my laptop to organize & edit my photos. Then my good friend Laura introduced me to the "people" feature in Picasa and I have since lost a
few many hours days naming photos and watching them automatically go into people catagories for future reference.
It was during one of my "naming" sessions that I came across the following photos that have taught me a valuable lesson from my mother!
LESSON #1There is a time when it is acceptable and even cute to dress your children alike when they are small.
|Jan, 1981 - Aren't we adorable in our matching red short suits?!|
|Early 1982 - rocking the blue jumpers! Does anyone else see Blake's "cheese" in Jodi's smile?|
But there comes a time when matching goes from cute to just plain awkward and embarrassing, and it's important to know the line before you cross it...
|Coming to you straight from Little House on the Prairie.|
Welcome to the line crossed.
Me and my prairie sister, would like to present you with our version of "What Not To Wear". I still remember that horrid purple dress vividly... oh how I hated it!
As I looked at these photos I couldn't help but wonder what on earth was my mother thinking? But then I came across this picture that I took this past Christmas.
|My boys... matchy-matchy!|
And I totally get it now.
Dear Hayden & Elijah,
It is clear to me now that I am destined to become my mother!
So I apologize in advance for what photos
I may take of you as you grow older.
Please know it's only because I think
you're the cutest things EVER.
And if I take photos of you later in life,
that you deem to be embarrassing...
I want you to blame your grandmother!
Love, your mommy!
