Last week, I posted my 6th grade class picture on Instagram. I showed it to my kids and asked them if they could pick out which one was me. Eva guessed correctly right away, but Henry did not. He picked a girl who looked pretty similar to me, though. However, he didn't stop there. He pointed to a little boy (top 3rd from the left if you opened the picture) (Eddie), and said, "That one is for sure Auntie Izzy!" In his defense, he knew this pic was very old, and Eddie does have similar eyes to my sister. However, the comparisons definitely stop there.

So I sent the picture to my sister, laughingly telling her that Henry thought she was the 3rd top from the right (meaning to type left), and she immediately texted back saying, "Well at least he didn't think I was 3rd from the left!" Oops.

She's a good sport, luckily, and also super gorgeous, so she never has to worry about ever looking like 6th grade Eddie (although Eddie was, and still is handsome).
xoxo,
megan bird

  6. That's too funny, that's just as good as when you ask young kids things like "how old do you think I am" and stuff like that!

    Love both of your looks as usual!!

  10. Its funny what those pictures conjure up. Henry was using his guy brain to not take into the factors gals have. Honest. I've done tricks like that with my husband and he is wrong every time. Great skirt, Nora, ove it and I think you nailed the whole look, Megan.

  11. Ha, that's so funny!!! We did a 'Guess the teacher' competition last year at school where the kids had to.match us to our childhood pictures. One of mine they all guessed and the other, didn't have a clue bizarrely, considering I was only about 2 years younger in that!
    Love your pretty skirts and the fun you had with them and of course, that hat Megan! X
