Utopia Children's House; children set up a Christmas
scene with their own arts and crafts. NY 1930
Me as a horse, I'm the one with
those ridiculous white shoes, probably from my
I can remember the fight with my mom very well,
I've had countless discusions with her about clothing
ever since I was a young girl;
this one was about the colour of my shoes; our teacher
had charged us to wear white socks, black shoes, black
leggings and a white shirt for the school party;
this was mom's logic: If black is the standard,
than white is good enough;
you can see the result here, what a flop :-)

This gave me a giggle, I completely relate to this story! When I was growing up, my mother wanted me to wear plaid and dress like a secretary :^)ReplyDelete
moms are funny, aren't they? my mother wouldn't let me use hairspray when i was in high school, so i hid my hairspray in a closet and right before i went out the door, i'd spray my hair with tons of spray. of course my mother heard me (she must have had super ears) but i ran out the door. now i look back and know she was right....hair spray is terrible! your blog always makes me laugh; great sense of humor.....thanks!ReplyDelete
