THE MISSION

Welcome Mothers, Fathers, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and anyone else who needs an ear...Please come with an open heart.

This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

Please cry if you need to.
Please connect with others who are in your same space.

Please comment so we know what you need

Show and Tell - (Dare Style!)

Well, it's that time again. Class is once again in session and last week one our members, Miss Tomcat, issued a challenge.

I believe her exact words were... "You must find the dorkiest photo of yourself, and post it on your blog. Say, in a weeks time. There will be a prize for the most dorksome. A really, really dorky prize. xo"

So I expect that this weeks class will be full of youngsters with four eyes (The Comedian has glasses so that is in no way a disrepectful statement!), braces and , well, we already know our fab member with crossed eyes. Make sure to see her extra credit post for the cutie post-surgery!

Anyway, no idea if an uncoordinated six year old or a teen with crooked teeth and bad taste in earrings can compete...but here goes.




POINTS TO NOTICE:

  • The Little House on the Prarie Dress
  • The freshly glossed over scab

  • The best mullet you have ever seen!!

  • Oh- and see that bicycle tire in the bottom right hand of the pic? THAT is what was responsible for my chin injury..the DAY BEFORE school pictures. Yeah, grace was not my middle name, so why do I look so happy?



This visual representation of my seventh grade self is a little fuzzy, but not convaluted enough to mask the dinasour earrings, crooked collar and ...if you look closely...THE RETAINER!

Tomcat, hope this brings you another giggle or two and please, for other tell all pics from our younger years and some traditional Show and Tell's...hop on over to the homeroom!

While dinosaur earrings in 7th grade do scream dork (LOL), you were still a really cute dork. (coming from the self-professed queen of dorkdom)

You are brave! You were a cute first grader! How did you hurt your chin? You were looking pretty stylish in seventh grade too!

Arian said...

...SO glad I'm not the only one with dorky old school photos! Except I had glasses AND an underbite to add to the mix. Ugh!

Dora said...
