    Wonderful photo–whose mom is that? I have a photo of my mother that my father took before my sisters and I were born (which dates it to the mid-forties), lying on a bed in a filmy bra–very Betty Grable. It takes such a long time to realize that our mothers are fully rounded people, just like ourselves.
