Cow Lick

So I posted this picture,last month, about how I looked in kindergarten. I am shocked and awed at how my parents let me go to school looking that way. I dug out some more pictures from elementary school.

First grade. Notice the Cow Lick on the back of my head.

Fourth Grade- Look closely, same Cow Lick.

Fifth Grade-ummm....very close to sporting a...ummm...seriously what the hell is up with my hair?
No wonder I am very vain about how my hair looks now.

I am trying, but that hair distracts me.

Nothing.

my comment got lost earlier literally just as I was to post it...and that's sooo for the best. I tots said cow spittal coulda produced better hair than that, and LW and Anon probably had something to do with (gah!) that K pic! Child o' Nine! ;)

Looking back is always a laugh. I have a very unfortunate high school graduation picture. I have a 'shag' haircut or what we now call a mullet. Whatever was I thinking?
When I went back to my high school reunion, our graduation picture was on our name tag. So humiliating! I wanted to die!
You were a cute kid. You just have lots of hair and won't go bald at 50! Someday you will be envied for your hair.

Both the '70s & the '80s should be slapped for what they did to people's hair. Even kids! It's criminal, really.

I think its probably your fault - or your siblings. I'm only getting one kid off to school right, but even she can manage to hose up her hair in the ten minutes between brushing it and walking to the bus. It must be a kid thing.

at least you stopped looking like a girl after kindergarten.

I respect your ability to go back and look at these. I'm still haunted by the memories of all the shag haircuts I had preserved on film. Not cool. Not cool at all.

THE PARENTS ALWAYS GET THE BLAME! YOU WERE LUCKY YOU GOT TO SCHOOL, LET ALONE HAVE A GREAT HAIR-DO! YOU ARE OLD ENOUGH IN KINDERGARTEN TO COMB YOUR OWN HAIR. DID YOU? DON'T GO BLAME THE MOM. HARDLY HAD TIME TO DO MY OWN HAIR WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE! YOU WERE SO CUTE! YOU LOOKED JUST LIKE ME BACK THEN. WHAT HAPPENED?
