I don't remember how old I was in this picture (maybe 7 or 8) but I was the coolest (obviously) and had an awesome friendship bracelet collection. It was the best! It would stay wet for days and be so itchy underneath but I was COOL! For some reason my mom said I couldn’t wear them anymore and made me cut them off. She said they were starting to smell and my arm was probably atrophying underneath. (I don’t really believe she used the word “atrophy” but it would have been pretty cool if she did say that to her 7 yo daughter.) (Then again, to get me to stop sucking my thumb my parents told me that if I didn’t stop I’d suck all the skin right off my thumb and I’d just have the bone sticking out…so, maybe she did use the word atrophy.) Either way, to calm me down she said we could take a picture so we’d never forget how
disgustingly gross wonderful those few months were.
I am you are excited that I found ANOTHER picture with a cameo appearance from that heart comforter!)
(I can spot at least 7 items in this picture that I still own.)
(I may have trouble throwing things away.)
So...you better believe I did NOT discourage my son when he discovered Silly Bandz!
And yes, he's sitting at the same table that I was sitting at.
Happy Friday Peeps!
