Tabby was the flower girl in my brother Patrick's wedding. She loved her flower girl dress - there were no puffed sleeves! But ... evil mom that I can be ... I packed my favorite play clothes of hers to wear on that wedding trip. And - at least one of the shirts had the dreaded ... puffed sleeves. My mom, aunt, and I still remember how after being forced to wear the outfit, Tabby's face contorted into pure disgust and she pulled at the sleeves and announced through gritted teeth: "I hate puffed sleeves!"
Here are two pictures of Tabby, taken shortly before she began her battle against puffed sleeves, wearing dresses with little puffed sleeves:
|Happiness is holding a lizard!|
|This is just one of the dresses. The others are at school and I haven't seen them yet.|
|Tabby says the sleeves look puffier on her|
There are four productions of "Sense and Sensibility" which run April 28 - 30. Tabby is in the play on Friday and Saturday nights. She's looking forward to it, but bummed she'll miss a track meet Saturday night.
