Now that Dr. Monkey von Monkerstein's photo expose of me as a child has blown the lid off my carefully constructed blog persona, I am now forced to reveal that I was in reality NOT a blond-haired, blue-eyed white kid. I suppose I'll be kicked out of the country club now, dammit. Here are the early years as I remember them:

Age five or six, sleepy at a family party at a cousin's house. When we were little, my parents used to party pretty late! (well, who am I kidding? it was probably around 9:30; young Dguzman just liked her sleep. And still does.)

With my parents, probably around three years old.

In my favorite green cordoroy dress. I loved it!

Stylin' in fourth grade, my first year wearing glasses. And oh what glasses they were.

Ay, mi guapita!

You are just too damn cute sister. Thanks for sharing this.

Now I want to see version Bird.2!

Oh my god, how cute were you? Off the scale cute. I loved little girls like you when I was a boy, I loved the dark skin and the exotic sounding accent. It's a good thing we didn't know one another then though because my heart would have broken when you embraced your inner dyke. :) Oy such a cuite you were!

Fran, version Bird.2 is a lot chubbier and older!

Dr. Monkey--I didn't come to terms with my inner dyke until college, so just think--we could've gone steady!

You're cuter than Dr. Monkey could have ever imagined!
