Big Sis' hair is driving me crazy. I tried so hard to combat chlorine from the pool this summer, diligently washing it right after we were in the pool each time, and not letting her swim more than twice a week in the pool, but alas....her hair is fried.
I have also noticed that as my brown hair is being replaced by white, her blond hair is being replaced by brown. Her journey to brown hair has begun. She's growing up. I'm getting old.
Between the tangly chlorine-blond and the gradual transition to brown, her hair is making me nuts!
It made me start to wonder about my own hair at that age. I found a few pix that are extremely poor quality because I don't feel like turning on my scanner right now. I just held them up and snapped the pic with photobooth.
Here is me in 1st grade, I have the curlyish hair and bangs with a pink bow. My best friend is looking off to the side, wearing glasses. Her name is Kim. Apparently, this got torn somewhere along it's journey from 1985 until now. I think my hair looks quite brown in this photo, but given the quality and the possible bad lighting equipment of the 80's, maybe it was blonder in person...
This photo is in kindergarten. Nice jacked-up teeth....nothing's changed! My hair looks like I feel Big Sis' looks right now...just that tangly, stringy chlorine mess. I am surprised at how much it changed from this picture to the 1st grade one, as far as hair color goes. For the first time, I see some Lil Sis in me...I guess as she's getting older she is starting to resemble me a little more.
And here's my beautiful Big Sis.
I am going to predict that her teeth will have a better future, given that she doesn't have fake ones like her Mom did at this age. I am also going to predict that her blonde hair will stay longer than mine did. I hope so, it's so pretty.
