For years I was an only child (okay for 4 years) and got all my parents attention. I received all the photo albums after my mother passed away and even more photos after my father passed away.
Notice the dress. In all my pictures growing up I was wearing either a dress or skirt set. Hmmm, could this be why I so enjoy wearing trousers now??? Dad did not believe that girls should wear slacks or jeans and it wasn't until I reached Grade 9 that I got my first pair of jeans. I thought Dad was going to have a heart attack as they had a zipper just like men's pants. He soon got used to it though as I lived in those jeans on the weekend.
One of my uncles is not in the pictures and another died at 4 months old. My Grandmother married my Grandfather at 15 and had 16 children, 15 of which lived to celebrate this happy day with them.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
