Through a childs eye

 
 
 
I am four years old in this picture that was taken with my Mother and her parents (my Grandparents). They lived at the very northern top of Montana on a homestead. What a different life it was than compared to where I was living (in a small town in Arizona with electric lights, running water, and a grocery store full of food that my parents owned).  I don't remember a lot except there were chickens right out the back door and you could throw seeds out and they would come running (scared me) and that you could get potatoes out of the ground! I also remember a picture of me getting a bath in a tub on the stove. One night my parents decided to go to town and left me with my Grandmother. We were going to bed and she stood in front of the mirror and began taking these things out or her hair and of my gosh.....she had this really long hair that I had never seen!
In my minds eye it looked like this:


 
Of course it wasn't but it was a shock to me. That was the only time I ever saw it down and later in life she cut it short but I will never forget it.

What a fun post. It's fun to see things from a child's perspective.

That is a beautiful old photo of the ladies hair! Interesting what impresses us as a child:)

Gigantic memories than finally appear to us in proper perspective. I liked my original visions best.

You were a cutie and I am sure Montana was a culture shock for you even though you were small. I too remember my Grandma having long long hair and she would twist it up in a bun at the back of her neck and place a hair net over it. Later she too cut her hair. Peace

It's always a good thing to remember what it was like to be a child!
