This photo came home with us recently after clearing out my old room at mum’s before she moved house. My dad used to have a children’s clothing shop (one of his many careers), some of the things he designed included clothes and accesories with these cheesy slogans. Here I am modelling his stuff.

I can see a sort of resemblance to Arlo at the same age, but at the same time I think we look quite different.

Here’s another one I found, noteworthy on several counts:

The car, my mum’s old beetle. Baby on lap in the car, acceptable in the 80s, apparently. My brother wearing the same Hawaian print outfit that Arlo wore last Summer.
