Childhood Shoe Memories
Hi there! I want to tell you about my shoes and some fun things I did when I was a little kid. I had three pairs of shoes. One pair was my shiny black Mary Jane shoes for Sunday school and church. I also had shoes for school and shoes to play in when I came home. Every year, I got new shoes that looked like the old ones when they got too small. My mom liked to buy Buster Brown shoes because they were good quality.
On Sundays, we dressed up in our nicest clothes for church. I wore a hat, white gloves, and had a little purse that matched my black patent shoes. My mama would spray me with a pretty smelling perfume called "To a Wild Rose" by Avon. I had special coats too – one for church, one for school, and one for playing outside and riding my bike after school.
When we played outside, sometimes we pretended to be superheroes like Superman, and I was always excited when I got to be Lois Lane. My favorite things to do outside were swinging and making mud pies in my backyard. I didn't need a lot of friends to play with to be happy because I loved playing by myself.
One of my favorite things to do was cutting out pictures of people from the Sears Roebuck Catalogues and making up stories with my pretend Sears Roebuck families. They kept me busy for hours! I also liked watching TV shows like "Captain Kangaroo," "Romper Room," "Mighty Mouse," "I Love Lucy," and more. I used to wish I could be Annette Funicello, a famous girl on TV.
