The “Babushka Babes” - my mother and her first cousin Patricia. A babushka is Polish for “scarf”.
My cousin Michele and I wouldn’t of been caught dead wearing those babushkas when we were young! Our grandmothers would fuss at us to cover our heads when it was windy or cold out and we would say – how old fuddy duddy is that?!?! Our mothers used to wear those!
What’s really funny is – I’ve always pictured myself wearing a babushka and sunglasses as I drive off in my cherry red mustang convertible… someday…
Fuddy duddy indeed!
