My birthday is February 23rd, and on the 23rd of each month, I post a couple of random facts about myself. So here’s the randomness for the month of March…
I didn’t get my first pair of jeans until I was about six.
My mom thought that little girls should be dressed in frills. I think I had some corduroy pants, and I know I had shorts in the summer, but she didn’t like the idea of jeans. I finally asked for some for my birthday one year, and I got Gloria Vanderbilt jeans from my grandparents.
I have to laugh about that now. My girls got their first pair of jeans when they were about seven months old, and jeans are a huge wardrobe staple at our house. I may pair the girls’ jeans with cutesy buttons and bows, but I’ve gotta have my denim!
I wonder if my palate is maturing a bit.
Don’t get me wrong…I COULD eat several entire bags of jelly beans during the time between Valentine’s Day and Easter…but I haven’t CRAVED them this year like I did in the past. To date, I’ve consumed part of one bag, and I’m not even sure if I’ll have any more. I don’t mean to jinx myself, but I wonder if my taste buds might actually be growing up??? It's probably not a bad thing.
There it is! Until next month...
