A month or two ago, I did a 2 page layout using the Basic Grey's Oxford line. I got the kit from the Crop Shop in Rockland MA. You know me.. I followed the kit and then started to deviate and added a bunch of CTMH products in, of course. There is a reason that I don't assemble furniture from IKEA!
Anyway, on the Oxford line, I loved the glasses especially since my youngest daughter had to get her first pair last year. Last night I was again reminded of my daughter's glasses. At only 9 years old, guess what she wants...??? Contacts, yes contacts!! I almost died! She stated that other kids were already wearing them in 4th grade! I told her no, not yet because she was still growing and her eyes were still changing, etc.
Two weeks ago, the hygienist came out to talk to me because my older 14 year old daughter had inquired about getting her teeth whitened. Thank goodness we were on the same page-- NO, too young!
This brings me back to when I grew up.
- Braces: we didn't have invisible ones or ones with lots of cool colors. Instead, we had huge silver ones that we had to wear for 3-4 years. And, remember the retainer headband thing!
- Teeth Whitening: did it even exist? What ever color your teeth were, you were stuck with it.
- Hair: mine was curly, curly-- untamable. There were no products back them to straighten your hair, only hair dryers and curling irons. And, even if products did exist our parents would be like go babysit, make money and buy it yourself!
- Acne: God help us if we had a breakout!. All we could reach for was Clearasil and maybe if we were lucky, it would be the tinted skin color kind!
- Glasses: not too much of a selection and I think contacts didn't even exist!
- Telephones: we had to call on landlines to make plans. There were no answering machines, but somehow we all managed to meet up and hang out.
- Texting: Closest thing was shorthand. But, who took that? Instead, we wrote letters to our pen pals.
