I have just been reading through the Monday memories contributors posts and enjoying them , which leads me to.....
I was remembering when my sisiter Ellen and I were very small. Costumes we didn't really have, that I can remember but we had a song that we would sing together in the bath tub. Hahaha. We had a record a 45 rpm that was called "The tales of Mrs Twiggy Winkle." On the record was a funny little song, to my long ago memory, it said "Bright and clean, Bright and clean, clean as we have ever been,we have never ever been so bright and clean". We would jump out of the bath tub and run through the house singing it with bath bubbles still clinging and dripping across the floor as we sung. I remember our parents laughing and chasing us with a towel to dry us off. Hahaha.
Oh I am loving this prompt, now where did that memory come from, it was so long ago. A bubble costume!
Oh yes..... now I remember two dresses. They were my Mum's dancing dresses and I loved them. One of them was bright red and the other a beautiful bright sky blue and we would put them on and swan around the house.
My Mum must have been so skinny when she wore them out. They were just beautiful , both were made from a stiff taffeta type material and had flared out puffy skirts that were too long for us, but in their day were most likely ankle length. She had an 18 inch waist in those days (something I never attained in my adult years). My sister and I very quickly out grew the waist in them and were unable to do up the zipper at the side. I loved those dresses, I can still see them in my mind. Pretty.
My own children loved to dress up when they were little. Michael had a cowboy costume. An old story that my sister tells .... She was living in Sydney at the time and decided that she would take Michael home with her for a few days and I would drive up there and pick him up. So she took him on the plane with her , his first plane ride. He of course had to wear his cowboy outfit. When they were boarding the plane he held up the plane with his plastic gun and everybody thought it was hilarious. Wow, I bet they wouldn't put up with that so easily now days.
David had a superman outfit. And Anne Marie was a fairy princess.
David was a funny little guy with that superman outfit. It included a shirt and a cape and he refused to take it off when he was three years old. It was originally meant to be pajamas but he wouldn't have that and wanted to wear it day and night, to the point that he would get angry with me when I had to take it off him to wash. He would wait eagerly for it to be dry enough to put back on again and if he could have reached the clothes line to get it down himself he would have worn it wet. Haha.
Oh I should go through my old photos to share with you before I start writing. Hahaha. So cute.
Bye for now. Love Linda.
