I was a boy once, too! *UPDATED*

So, you all had a good laugh over Ann's post about when she was a boy, eh? Then this should make you fall off your seats! Yes, that is me at 4 years old, in my preschool picture (circa 1971). Proof, for sure, that I was once a boy! The son my dad never had. Nice hair, don't you think? I'm glad that I was later able to get in touch with my feminine side. (By the way... that boy shirt? It's actually a dress.)

*Update: I just showed this post to my fifteen-year-old daughter. She asked me, "Is that Dad?" When I told her who it was, she cracked up and said, "You look like a boy!" Exactly.

  14. Yes, definitely child abuse!! And as to how it can be a dress... I don't know what the designer was thinking! But there is a blue skirt attached to the lovely top part. Nice!

    I'm glad I win! I wish there were a cash prize, because I'd be rich!
