One time, my Mom was bored.

So she broke out the clippers and shaved my head.

My mom shaved my head regularly when I when I was a kid. I don’t have a three year old photo of myself where I do not look terminally ill. She shaved my head because she believed it would cause my hair to grow out thick and lovely. (Is that an old islander/asian wive’s tale?) Anway, I don’t think she shaved my head enough because I have very fine, straight hair. I also have an inexplicable fear of clowns but I’m sure it has nothing to do with the getups, excuse me, outfits I was made to wear as a child.
Hey, remember that one time when my dad was bored?

    Oh man… I saw pictures of myself after my parents did that– I’m glad they only did it once! Too bad they never did it for my little sis, she ended up taking it into her own hands when she was three! She ended up with the cutest little FRO ever!

    Your hair is much better now, Josie. 🙂
    My daughter and wife don’t like clowns either. A word to the wise: don’t read Stephen King’s novel, “It” unless you really want to have a clown phobia.

    If you’re that cute, you don’t even need hair. And you look happy 🙂

    You posted it! This is, by far, my favorite pic of you! You just look so carefree and happy!
    As for clowns, I have a slight phobia of them as well. You’re not alone.

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. It’s true, I was a cute & happy kid…but it’s easy to be cute and happy when you don’t have a full-time job, a car payment or rent that’s due! 🙂
    Sha, I wish I had the cutest little fro ever. LOL
    G, they look like peanut butter cracker sandwiches to me.
