…is it weird that my initial reaction was to put on real clothes instead of pajamas, as if this was some formal event that I felt disrespectful attending while wearing shorts and a tanktop?
Yes, Dad, sending me creepy and unattractive photos like this months after the event is totally normal.
My mom was going through her old clothes, and was about to throw away the dress she wore on her wedding day at the reception. I stopped her, saying I would wear it, just to keep her from throwing away such a memory. I went up to my room and decided, what the hey, I’ll try it on. This dress is so amazing and vintage and adorable and I want to wear it to Junior Prom, with bright red lipstick and my hair up and brightly colored heels. This is great.
The pictures don’t do this wonderful dress justice.
My mom just posted this on my Facebook wall. This is me exactly 12 years ago, on my third birthday. It’s now my fifteenth birthday woohooo!
