Remember Whensday No. 14 - School Days

I think this is probably THE worst school picture of me. At least from grade school. I mean, look at that awful hairdo! Why was it so bad? Why did I look like I just got out of bed?

Never EVER let an 8 year old cut her own hair the night before school pictures. Period. This is the end result. My poor mother...she tried to even it out as best as she could without me ending up with a buzz cut. But she could only do so much with the mess I created. I'm sorry, Mom.

your adorable with your crooked haircut, i think.

once, minutes before we were to walk out the door for my participation in a parade i took the scissors and cut the hairs off my left eyebrow. i don't know why either. my mom was livid and didn't find the humor it at all. she shaved the rest off as well as my right one (i think) and put makeup on them to conceal my stylin' haircut. :) have a great day.

You were a cute kid bed head or not. :-) I had some really horrible hair in the 70's and my mother had to pay for it.

Love the haircut!
My little brother gave my cousin a "fashionable (i.e.crewcut)haircut the day before my elder brother's wedding. He did it in the cartshed. I feature that brother in my "Whensday" post this week. My aunt did not appreciate the result.

I believe I had a haircut just like that and around that age. But my bangs were shorter and really crooked. Mom said I could just wear it that way being I'd cut it that way.

Another great memory to share with us Sally.

You had a cute little pixie cut! Your mom did a good job of evening it out. We always think we look worse than we actually do. I think you looked cute.
