Lord, Mama!!! WHY!?! This was Easter Sunday, 1964 and I was not a happy child. This photo was probably made before Sunday school so that would mean that I had to get up around 8am, eat breakfast, put these itchy clothes on, go outside with the parents and the camera, then go to church and sit there until noon. No wonder I don't go to church anymore, much to my mom's dismay, but how could she blame me after the trauma she put this poor little girl through!
This is not the girl my mama thought she was raising! Much better on a Sunday morning to be wearing Wesley's Invader Zim pajamas and my favorite denim jacket!! I'll celebrate Sunday my own way thank you.
Hope everyone has a peaceful and happy Easter. I think this is a sad holiday, everyone carrying on about the Easter bunny and the marketing maniacs selling us colored eggs and more candy, when in fact is marks the tragic crucifixion of a kind and gentle man. Oh sorry, didn't mean to bum everyone out, but seriously, this holiday candy thing is getting out of hand, but.... yes I did buy some chocolates and I made an Easter bunny treat for Wesley..... you have to do these things when you are a mom, it's the rule!
