Once upon a time …
Three young farm girls discovered a closet full of dresses. The lovely, flowing garments belonged to their grandmother, great-grandmother and great aunt. The three girls eagerly dressed in the lovely satins, velvets and silks and then slipped into high-heeled shoes that were entirely too high for ladies of such innocent age. The young ladies felt absolutely beautiful — regal, in fact.
Thus, there mummy showcased the moment by snapping a photograph and promising to make them blush later in life when they dress in their own fancy frocks for a date to a dance or the prom with young gentlemen who will be expected to be on their best behavior.
Motherhood (and aunt-hood) is so rewarding.
