Cabbage Pat - Family Portrait

“This photo was taken in August 1984. I was 10 and my sister was 13 (although she looks 40). The Cabbage Patch Kid was Emalia Arlene, and I swear she never left my freaking side. With my boy haircut, huge glasses, and braces, I look like such a mess.”

    i had a cabbage patch doll when i was a kid that i took EVERYWHERE. we bought a car seat for it and buckled it in the car. my orthodontist even put braces on it. yes, real braces. and no, i am not the girl in this picture . . . we all have our awkward moments don’t we??

    My goodness what a strange 80’s family photo, It looks like that older sister is digging her thumb into her little sis, and what is she looking at over there to her left…and what is up with those glases??? lol

    Whats more awkward is that Mom, big sis and lil sis shop at the same eye-glass store.

    I do like big sis’s collar turn-up.
