We are to post a baby picture and tell the story behind it.
The pic below is one of my faves. That's me, my mother, and my sister Mary. I couldn't have been older than 2 years old and for some reason I remember that moment so vividly.
We are seated in our living room back in our house on Vine Avenue in my hometown, Park Ridge, Illinois. We're all dolled up in our frilly dresses and I think that was the day my sister got baptised. This was back in the day when the living room was always kept clean for company and the kids and our toys were usually only allowed to mess up the basement. To be in the living room meant that we were celebrating a special occasion. Anyway, for some reason I remember my mother telling me to keep my brand-new red sneakers off the living room couch. And, as you can see, I was an exceptional listener. ;-)
I can't be certain but I'm pretty sure that had to be my father behind the camera, making me laugh. Oh, how I miss my parents.
