Slowing Down to Catch Up

My nephew is one of the funniest kids I know... and everything he knows, he learned from his dear old dad!
My brother Randy's birthday was Sunday, so we got together to celebrate over the weekend. Now, this guy has a knack for picking out the BEST birthday cards. My sil found all the beautiful sentimental cards, trying to help my brother with the one that filled the bill - to which he would wave each one away - and then he spotted it... the perfect card!
You see, I went through a rebellious stage right after my mom died and consequently, my 6th grade picture has me sporting a navy blue dotted swiss tie and the funkiest pair of sparkly white winged glasses you ever saw (which I will NOT be sharing with you lol). The minute I opened this card, it reminded me of that school picture and I busted out laughing!
His birthday card to me said: If you could re-live your youth, what would you change? .... besides your glasses? On the inside he wrote "we liked your glasses better!"
ha! I think he kinda looks like this girl, dont you? :)

LATEST UPDATE: I searched my puter but I don't have a copy of the picture scanned, sorry! (muwahahaha) I will look for the photo and ask hubs to scan it for me one of these days - I'm warning you... you have no clue what you are in for!
