Happy Mother's Day


The Four C's with Mom, 1969

"Women know
The way to rear up children (to be just)
They know a simple, merry, tender knack
Of tying sashes, fitting baby-shoes
And stringing pretty words that make no sense."

- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Hey Harriet said...

That's so sweet. It's a really beautiful photo. You all look so angelic...but I'm quite sure you all grew out of that stage ;D

Wow, four girls. And she raised at least one person I know of the bunch super-wonderfully. Your mom deserves a medal!

Your mother looks so merry and proud...amidst the gaggle of cute little girls,

I don't know whether or not you are a mother, so I will say "Happy Mother's Day" in case you are...

It's a special day...I hope you enjoy it.

Regards,
Lavinia

You guys are so cute! Your parents must have cursed not giving you different initials when the mail came in for Miss C *your surname here*, if you guys were anything like my siblings and me. There would be a complete bun fight if anyone ever opened another person mail.

What a great shot! I have three girls myself. I have so few old photos - reminds me that I have to go through my mom's old stash and make myself an album!
