Take a look at this pic, on the other hand –

The couple holding the baby aloft are my maw an’ paw. Folk who didn’t know better would look at that photo and say things along the lines of – what a bonny wee lass, an’ hasn’t she a fine head of hair

According to family lore, my birth was not universally well received.
