I  wonder why  Victorian  mothers felt the need to dress their boys in
frills and flounces and curl their hair?
Do you think they really longed for a girl?

It seems the Victorians were frou frou in general but who knows. June thanks for your sweet comments and yes I would love your area of the world. I looked at your "I Live Here" post and the church is gorgeous. I have been praying for Freddie and you. Since I do not do art of any kind it is hard to keep up with you and Cindy and all the artists. hugs♥olive

I don't think it was that they wanted a girl...I think it was just part of the culture of the time. Not sure why they dressed their boys so femininely for the first several years of life. I guess it would an interesting study to find out why they did that.
