This week's Sepia Saturday theme screams baby carriage to me, and I found this picture of my Mom, Jody, when she was around 5 years old (c. 1942), pushing her doll carriage out on the farm. The girl in the prompt photo looks a bit young to be the baby's mother, so I have expanded on the baby carriage theme to include family members helping each other.
Mom, you had such beautiful long hair! Those shoes look a bit big though. I wonder if you borrowed them from somebody so that you could play outside and not get yours all dirty. Oh! Mom just emailed me about the shoes:
Since last week's post about "The Saggy Baggy Elephant" was such a big hit, I decided to scan the 1962 Little Golden Book, "We Help Daddy" for this week. It was written by Mini Stein and illustrated by Eloise Wilkin. My daughter Kristin wrote her name in as the owner, but then it was crossed out in green crayon, most likely by her older sister Kari. Kari must have sensed a pattern going on with Kristin making claim to their books and did her best to undermine that process. It wouldn't be the first time! Anyway, I hope that you enjoy this sweet book, and remember, you can click on each photo to enlarge them for easier reading.
So, there you are, my friends. If you enjoyed this story, please visit my Sepia Saturday friends by "CLICKING HERE" to find other neat photos and stories.
