I'm the overdressed girl to the right.
I think I was two.
I remember how muddy the water was on that summer day in the South. I remember how I didn't know anyone. The other little girls seemed so free running around in their underwear and their diapers. I would never be caught dead in my underwear in public. The other girls didn't seem to care how wet and dirty they got in that creek. I had a beautiful navy dress with white polka dots and matching bloomers on, thank you very much. There was no way I was going to get wet. Oh, and further more, I had on Snoopy sandals.
I remember feeling alone and feeling different.
Sometimes I still feel like that little girl in the Snoopy sandals.
