In mother-speak it's 394 months.

My mom was down in February and while she was here she took a bunch of pictures. Because she's about as organized as I am, she just sent me copies in the mail.

Letting alone the fact that most of them involved people missing the tops of their head, with mouthfuls of food or in frame from some generally unflattering angle, there is how she identified the photo's in the inscriptions on the back.

On a photo OF me, TO me, she writes my whole name; first last and middle and THEN includes "age 32 years 10 months". Seriously. Because someday I'm going to be flipping through the album and be all "WHO THE HELL IS THAT WEARING MY EARRINGS?" and then flip it over and be all "oh! Ha, ha! It's just me! Good thing Mum wrote that on there, I was about to cut a bitch!"

See what you have to look forward to?

Jane! said...

That is hilarious! She writes you age down to the MONTHS like you are still a toddler?

Nadine Hightower said...

That's funny about the age. My granny tells me all the time to put the names on photos becuz when I get to be her age I'll forget who that is and what was happening!!

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

Awww, you're still her baby. That's precious :)

Well, are you going to post any? Because I want to see before and after pics, and I'm not talkin' about your rack!

I have been told the same as Nadine, you'll forget when and where and how old you are. I may want to forget, at that point...

That is freaking hilarious! Hey, it could happen, we may get blasted by that light thingie in MIB and forget it all...now you will have some sort of a memory aid. Your mom is SMART!

I always wondered how your mom kept track of the whole multiple fathers thing. Now I know she is uber organized.

My Mom will actually write "December 25th" on Christmas cards. In case I forget what day Christmas is.

I am always looking at pictures and wondering, "was I 28 and two months or 28 and three months when we took that?"
