When I was in grade five and in the beginning of grade six, I was kind of a tomboy. I was a pretty tough kid, and I actually looked like a boy. One of my worst childhood memories is from when I was 11. A big boy approached me and sneered, "Are you a boy or a girl?" Gah! Not fun. I was totally humiliated.
Lately I've been thinking Max is looking even more like me, which I didn't think was possible. Max is now going into grade six, so I searched out my grade six school picture to compare to his. And....check this out.
Is that even normal? Should we really look like the same person, just 22 years apart? Does this mean Max is going to grow up to be a lady? Do I look like a man? I'm so confused. Max said he felt like he was looking at a picture of himself when he saw this.
My hairstyle was not cool back then. I'm not sure why I did that to myself.
