Auntie R and I have been friends for as long as I can remember. Her parents have a summer house across the street from where my grandparents lived, and where I spent pretty much 95% of my childhood. We became friends and spent our summer days playing hopscotch, singing and dancing to Debbie Gibson, riding bikes, and on Saturdays Auntie S and I would get all dressed up in Auntie R’s dresses and shoes and Gramma would stuff those shoes with cotton balls and rubber band them to us so we could go to synagogue with her. Really boggles my mind…we did this a LOT…why didn’t my mom send us to Gramma’s house with dresses and shoes??? We had them! I guess she knew it would be a funny story for us to tell! Thanks mom 🙂
Auntie R lived in the city during the school year so we only really saw her in the summers, but when we were old enough to drive, I saw her a lot more! We had lots of fun, drama, craziness, and laughs. We even made some trips to the loony bin!
Now Auntie R has 2 beautiful twins. Cousins J & G. They are adorable!
I will send A with pretty dresses and shoes that fit when she visits Auntie R on Saturdays 😉
