This is one of my favorite childhood photos. I was 3-4 years old in this picture. I use to have very long hair as a child an I loved that I have a bow in my hair. It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I loved this dress too!
During this time period, I remember my favorite TV show was the Polk-a-Dot Door. I remember when I was 4 sitting on my moms lap and riding to Skippers for dinner. I remember having these brown sandals that had a heel that I thougth were like high heels and wanting to wear them because I felt "grown up." We had a trampoline and a swingset in our backyard. I remember playing with my friends and making houses out of our bikes and lining them up in a square and laying a blanket over the top for a roof. This is the age, I believe that Three's Company and Mel's Diner was favorite TV shows in our home. These are the days that if you got me into a restaurant that I would set up my utensils to be like dolls and keep myself entertained. The knife was the dad, the fork was the mom and the spoon was the daughter. If I was lucky enough to keep the menu, VOILA I had a house. Life was easy and care free.
Looking back, I am remeinded that I once had an amazing imagination and I need to find it again. I was happy by the littlest things and I should return back to that child like attitude. I need to play more often and not worry so much about my days being about accomplishing things. Take life and enjoy it!
By the way, does that picture remind you of anyone?
