I dont participate in any weekly posts but Flashback Friday has to be the exception. I absolutely love the concept and what better excuse to do it than NaBloPoMo? Easy post WIN.
I’m not sure if you know this, but I’m an only child. Sometimes I wish I had a brother or sister, but since I dont really know the difference, I’m pretty happy to be an only child. The cliche is that I was spoiled and know what? IT’S TRUE. I was spoiled. By my parents, by my grandparents, you name it. You might think I act spoiled (and sometimes I do. Waaah) but I don’t really think I am, mostly.
As you can see, I was pretty freakin’ adorable if you don’t mind me saying. OK in this picture, I look a little stoned. I”m not exactly sure if I am sitting next to my dad, or my grandpa. We went to games ALL the time when I was a kid. My dad was raised a Dodger fan, and so was I. Based on the hands, it looks like it might be my grandpa. However, based on the radio and the scorebook, it could have been my dad. I should have asked. Ha.
I suppose this picture really shows WHY my parents have told me that I look like Fernando Valenzuela. He’s the Manny Rodriguez of the 80’s to the Dodgers. Fernando helped the Dodgers win a World Series and at that time, I was already a fan, all up in my mommy’s belly.
Obviously I don’t think I was even old enough to walk here but yea, wasn’t I cute? Heh. Babies.
When I was growing up, my parents both worked and went to night school to finish their degrees. I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. Lucky for me, both my dad’s mom and mom’s mom lived on the same property. One in the front house and the other in the back. During holidays and some weekends, I got to see all sides of my family and spend time with my cousins. Obviously, I was very much the cutest and most loveable kid. HAHA. I dont know if thats true. I’m makin’ shit up. I know as I got older, I was pretty bratty. But that’s a blog post for another day. Lets just say, I was well dressed, groomed, and well taken care of as a little girl. And above all else, I was loved. Very, very loved.
OMG the adorable, adorable curls! Sign me up for a daughter, STAT.
