Throwback Thursday: Thumb Sucking Was So Fun (And So Was Curly Hair)

Throwback Thursday, #tbt, #ThrowbackThursday, curly hair, 1980's, 1980s, thumb sucker, thumb sucking
Were you a thumb sucker as a kid? Well, I certainly was. I started before I can even remember -- and didn't stop until I got braces at 9 years old.

This photo perfectly encapsulates me in 1981. Sucking my thumb, wearing a cute dress (my mom and grandmas certainly knew how to pick out adorable baby clothes), with a mop of curls atop my head. I'm pretty sure I was supposed to be napping here, which -- much to my mom's chagrin -- really didn't happen all that often. (What can I say? I hate missing out on life. Even to this day I don't really get much sleep.)

I have to say, I really do miss those curls. I've already talked about my lifelong obsession with curly hair, and I'm serious. I wish my tresses still formed into corkscrews on their own the way they did when I was 1.

What's a moment from your past you love looking back on now? Let me know in the comments!
