Hello Ma Baby, Hello Ma Honey, Hello Ma Ragtime Gal
She inevitably goes off to parties dressed like this: a bit short on the skirt but otherwise modestly covered.
Then I find the hot pink, bandeau bra top in the wash the next day and know that the modest look had not been the predominant style statement of the evening.
It's a minefield, this value laden judgement we place upon our children. I mean, if I had to think back upon the things I wore way back when.....mind you, I think my belly was mostly covered but that may have been due to my complete absence of melanin.
Nowadays I would be happy to have a stomach which was worth uncovering!
