Growing up I was always a big kid. Until the boys started to grow in mid highschool I was often the tallest and heaviest in the class room. I recall that all the little girls had wonderful crinoline dresses in those days. This is what you wore to birthday parties. I longed for a dress like that but my mother thought I didn’t “suit” anything that frilly. My dresses were more practical and never with lace.
For those who are curious; that’s me on the left wearing the blue dress with smocking.
History repeated its self yesterday. I had company and they brough along their cute little dog Zoie. I wish I had been prepared. I would have put a very frilly lacey bow on Molly.
