Sitting with mom at grammy Addie’s with her silver parachute pants. 7.25.15

Dear Molly, You have this really distinct memory of sitting between mom’s legs on the braided rug at Grammy Addie’s house. I can’t remember if it was summer or winter but mom was wearing silver parachute pants – really plastic-y material – and you kept trying to convince her to let you slide down her legs. The pants were so slippery. They had a particular smell too, like detergent and musky-ness, and metallic. I am not sure if they actually smelled metallic or if they just looked that way so my nose filled in the blank.
