Every child goes through awkward stages. The above picture displays to the world mine. I can't tell you the times I was mistaken for a boy or the amount of sports shirts I had. The best part however was I never forgot fully my girl roots and always made sure I had on a cute pair of earrings...which didn't seem to help. So, as I look back at this picture and smile, I am also reminded of the many clerks that said "What can I do for you young man" and I think of the old saying that "milk really does do a body good!"
...It's a good thing I lived in the dairy state ;-).
