New Years and DiapersI remember when I was growing up, my mother always celebrated holidays with everything she could... such as we celebrated May Day with a May Pole in the front yard, and had my brother and I circle around it (quite embarrassing when your six and five). New Years Eve wasn't any different. My mother (bless her heart) had one of kids dress up as Father Time and Baby New Year for the New Year's Eve Parties she had in our home. My brother who is just 1 1/2 years older, always seemed to be Father Time and I had to play the part of Baby New Year ( I guess since I already wore diapers, it just made sense). I argued that I wanted to be Father Time, but I really didn't anywhere with my argument. Even when I got additional brothers (3 more before 1972), I still had to play the part. I know that I had to wear diapers growing up... but come on... quite embarrassing dressing the part of Baby New Year when your in the ages of 5 to 15. Later in life, I was going thru my parents photographs and came across a bunch of photos of me in my Baby New attire, including thick cloth diapers and plastic pants. I was made at my parents for embarrassing me this way, I privately destroyed them... now I kinda wished I never did this.
Everyone have a Happy New Year!
