“This is my brother and I at Christmas, 1965. I was only 6 months old and my brother obviously thought I was annoying, if not repulsive.”

Man, do I ever wish I could get a pair of saddle shoes like those for my toddler son. Those are so freakin’ cute!
my god that baby is huge!
Forget about the grammar, I want to know the weight of this “baby”!! That collar had to have been choking the poor kid. What a chunk!
I want to see a recreate of this one.
The sling in that baby seat looks pretty uncomfortable.
“Bring me Solo and the Wookiee.”
That is one chubby baby…
This could be my brother and me! I love the clothes, so cute!
Right on, I love the 60′s era photos …and kudos, Anne, for knowing when to use “my brother and me” instead of “my brother and I.”
Actually, “This is my brother and I” is correct because “is” is a linking verb requiring the use of the subjective “I”. Great picture!
Actually, no. “My brother and me” is correct. The easy way to test this is to remove the other person. You wouldn’t say “This is I at Christmas,” so you wouldn’t say “This is my brother and I at Christmas.” You should say “This is my brother and me” in the same way you’d be correct to say “This is me.”
The fact that so many people get this so wrong (along with the appalling use of “myself”) is why Russ gives Anne kudos.
Yes, so much yes! Just because you were corrected ONCE and told to say “my brother and I” does not mean it is appropriate in every case!
I will never understand why they don’t do a better job of teaching “imagine you’re only talking about yourself.” “This is I” makes no sense so you wouldn’t use it!
WTF, lol, who cares.
