My Third Grade Photo

When I look at my third-grade photograph, I cringe. I’m not sure what my parents were thinking when they picked out my outfit that day, but it’s clear that fashion wasn’t at the forefront of their minds. I was a little girl, and I’m wearing a bright red plaid flannel shirt. To top it off, I have a pair of bright orange suspenders.

As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to realize that my third-grade photograph isn’t something to be ashamed of. In fact, it’s a reminder of who I was at that age and how much I’ve grown and changed since then. It’s a reminder that it’s okay to be different and to stand out, even if it means taking risks and making mistakes along the way.

Looking back at my third-grade photograph now, I can’t help but laugh at myself. I look like Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Newman. I can see the humor in my parents fashion choices and the innocence in my smile.
