When I was little, my mom would get stopped in stores all of the time by people who wanted to look at me. Creepy, right? Anyway, she told me that they would say one of three things:
- "Oh, what a handsome little boy!"--This was due to the fact that my mom often dressed me in blue, believing that colors should not be and are not gender specific. Though to be honest, how a person could get a baby wearing a blue sailor dress with blue bows in its hair confused with a boy is beyond me.
- "Oh, what a beautiful baby! She is gorgeous! Look at those eyes! And those curls!"--These people got it right. I was indeed a girl baby.
- "Goodness, she's adorable! She looks just like Shirley Temple!"
So yes. I used to look like Shirley Temple. Good times.
PS Excuse the somewhat sarcastic tone of this post...I feel a little awkward talking about who I looked like. Especially since I don't consider myself to have been cute when I was a kid...just awkward, lol.
