She said: When I was a girl, everything was right

I have to admit that I don't like babies that much because they only cry, whine, and poop all day. Also, babies are a big responsibility that I don't want to have at this moment of my life. Considering this, I took a lot of photos from my childhood and asked my parents for their stories and the result was pretty funny.

A few weeks ago, I was looking for some things in a drawer of my house and I found a box full of old photos taken by my parents and my relatives. There were a lot of pictures in this box and I will show you some.

To start this story I have to show you my parents:

Before telling you some curiosities and show you some photos, I’d like to say that I’m really proud of my parents because they were so young when I was born, and they were very responsible and mature for being in their early 20s.

The first curiosity that I will show you is how my father and I were so similar when we were babies. It’s incredible!

Also, they told me that I was a baby who smiled a lot and they loved that!

But I could also be serious, or rather, drooling.

When I saw these photos I wonder why I only wear blue or light-blue clothing when I was a child (boy-oriented colours) and my dad told me that story. The thing is that my whole family thought that I was going to be a boy and my parents didn’t want to know my sex before I was born. A month to go before my birth, my dad couldn’t stand the waiting, so he asked the doctor whether I was going to be a boy or a girl. Of course, the doctor said: “a girl.” My dad couldn’t resist to keep the secret and when he and my mom get home they went to their room and he shouted: “It’s going to be a girl!” So the results were:

Anyway, I had some pink clothes too!

Another thing that my parents told me was that my skin was so fair that it was almost white, literally…

And of course, if there’s something that I think we all have, it’s the naked photos. Our parents always want to have some photos to embarrass us in front of our friends and partners!

The last thing that my parents told me was that when I grew up, my hair grew and it turned to be a lovely and beautiful blonde curly hair that I love, but I don’t have it like that anymore.

Short hair:

Long hair:

To finish this post I will show you some photos of the most important men in my life: my two brothers and my lovely boyfriend. In the case of my brothers, they’re much younger than me so most of the photos that we have are digital. Here are some:

My brother Juan Francisco:

And my beautiful and lovely boyfriend pablo_beatle:
