Siblings

One Haircut Fits All

“That’s me on the right. I’m glad I got to wear the “Little Mermaid” dress because it was the only way people could tell I was a girl. I was in kindergarten, my brother in the middle was in second grade, and my brother on the left was in fourth grade. Somehow we all wound up with identical hair cuts. Luckily, Mom pierced my ears shortly after this photo was taken. I had endured people calling me my brother’s name one too many times.”

Smiling Not Allowed 2

“Camp Nicaragua. This photo was taken around the same time as the political uprising that was going on in Nicaragua in the late 80s. Mother would tell people we were a bunch of refugees she had taken in.

Freebird

“This is my friend posing with his older sister. It looks like she’s riding on his back, but actually he’s wearing her shoes on his hands. Perched upon her shoulder is my friend’s beloved bird, Sebastian.”

Flash Dance

“Who doesn’t love the cheesy, already awkward sister recital photos? But why not include our little brother? Oh, no clothes on, you say? Too bad, no time. The show must go on!”
