No Curls, Please

But Mom, I don't want any curls!


This is a picture from my adolescent days back when my mom was working on her Ph.D. We lived in Clemson, SC in a 4-room apartment (bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom). My mom brought me to this apartment when I was 3 months old and we lived here for three years. I used to love to jump on the bathroom counter and watch mom try to curl her straight hair and put that funny colored stuff on her face. I think she was trying to look as beautiful as me!

Now that mom is slowing getting back her mobility, she is helping me to scan a bunch of old pictures from my younger days and begin telling my story of how I came to live with my mom 12 years ago. She is still trying to find the photo album of all of my CUTE baby pictures, but it must still be in a box somewhere from when we moved about four years ago back to Columbia, SC.

Stay tuned for future updates.

You're so cute up there on the sink... still, I can't help but wonder what Daisy would say about that post title. "No curls"?!? :-))

Daisy said...

I am very lucky that I have naturally curly furs!

You look beautiful just the way you are. It is fun to see some of your history. I cannot wait to see your baby pictures.

While Daisy and Miss Peach look good with curls, you would not. We too like to watch Mom in the human litterbox room.
