If I three childhood wishes when I was 7 or 8 years old, I know just what I would have hoped for:
First, go go boots (wow, I sound like such a wild little kid!). It was the early ’70s, and I thought I would really have arrived if I just had a pair of these popular boots.
Here is the Murk family, who came to our church to perform several times, and you can see that all the girls are looking so cool in their boots. Ah, the jealousy!
To go with my boots, my childhood wishes also included a muff. Muffs were just so princess-y and cute (something I was not), yet I held out the hope that a muff would transform me.
Finally, I wished fervently for a station wagon. Yep, with the wood paneling on the side, and more importantly, that big area in the back where I could imagine my sister and I playing with our Fisher Price Little People during long car trips.
So, did I ever get any of these items? Well, no. Maybe that’s why I still remember wanting them so vividly.
If you had three childhood wishes, would have they have been?
