|Disneyland last year, look at Hazels feet- not even touching the ground|
My parents went down the isle a little way to discuss, I eavesdropped. I remember hearing that my mom didn't want to give in, then hearing my dad say that if I thought that dress would truly make me happy then they should get it for me.
In one of the few battles I ever remember winning, my parents relented graciously and bought the over priced, mom-can-sew-a-better-one wedding dress. All of my sisters were at the store and they bought that dress for only me (of course I had to share it). I don't remember the others getting anything. Believe me when I say, we were not spoiled children. That is why this experience affected me so profoundly. I was so grateful. That little victory was my special day.
Flashback Again: Before the babies were born, I worried about how it would be for Hazel and CC with 3 babies at home. As a mother, I have a strong desire to give my children life experiences. Talking with Nathan, we decided we should do a fun vacation. Grammy Pammy's cousin, Kathy works at Disneyland and had an 'in" so six months pregnant with triplets we took off for Disneyland.
