when Jellyhead was Little Jellyhead

My fellow blogger, Sharon has posted a picture of herself as a child, which she'd recently received in the mail from a relative. I'm not sure if it's just the haircut, or the way she's smiling, but it reminded me quite a bit of someone... I realised I was reminded of me as a small thing.

So here I am, in a badly-prepared photo (had trouble with the cropping procedure blast and damn), with a facial rash I used to get from eating oranges. I also have blue eyes, whereas Sharon has brown. But if you erase the rash, change the eye colour, imagine a different angle - why we're practically identical twins! OK maybe my mind's been playing tricks on me. There's a slight likeness.

Anyway, here I am aged 3 or 4.

So I'm putting out the challenge to everyone else to show your child faces on your blogs!

Cute, what a little munchkin. (Do you still get a facial rash from eating oranges?)

Now, you do realize that we who are totally disorganized when it comes to our old pictures will be scrambling to find just that perfect shot to post. I don't think my hair was EVER cut like that. In fact, at that age I don't even know if I had any hair. Besides, had they actually invented cameras back in those days?

Your suggestion is a good one and I'm sure everyone will be scrounging around to find a good one to post. Should be very interesting, don't you think?

Yeah, I can't wait!

(Oh, and no to the facial rash. It is all systems go with the oranges!)

Oh my goodness! We are twins!

What an adorable picture! I love it!

That looks so much like Sharon's picture! I didn't know you are a redhead too!

I shall have to find a picture to post!

PS I look nothing like either one of you! ;-)
