Self portrait Tuesday

me - 1973

Scraping the bottom of the barrel this week, gone for the cute infant picture of myself. This is 1973, I’m between 18 months and 2 years old. It’s before my little sister is born and it feels like it was a peaceful time for my parents (trust me, no a lot of quiet in their lives), just the 3 of us. My parents were 18 and 21 when they had me, babies themselves. I think at this time my mum was working nights as a Hungry Jacks checkout chick and during the day my dad was selling cars. They definitely didn’t start their adult lives the easy way! I’m 33 and still deciding whether or not to have babies.

Aaaah, only just now seen this month’s suggested theme, Body Parts. Too late now. Look forward to seeing the naughtiness that a theme like this will no doubt encourage!

    So Cute! I was just discussing with a friend how young my parents were when they had me too. I couldn’t imagine having a baby at 20, heck I still can’t imagine it 5 years later. But dang were you cute!
