The Giggle Shirt

One of my projects this week was boxing up Sweet Pea's 12 month clothes (overdue) and sorting out/washing her 24 month clothes. In amongst the clothes I washed was a shirt that I had worn and loved as a tyke. It most likely passed down through a few of my siblings as well.

I put Sweet Pea in it this morning and dropped her off at Grandma's on the way to class. Grandma recognized the shirt right away. :)

I hunted down a picture of me in the shirt, so without further ado, here is a comparison shot.

(No date on the back of the photo, but I think I'm about 3 years old here.. Sweet Pea is 20 months. Slightly different builds, you think?)

This one goes out to all the druggies.

If you're consistently all coked up on various illegal substances, and you come to the hospital with some broken bones, chances are we're going to have some pain management issues.

Yes, I believe you when you say you're in pain, but no we can't give you six Percocet at a time. Sorry.
