Apparently the telltale ultra short dress was not unusual in the early 70s. I really was wondering because I would describe my mother as being very modest and showing off my knickers like seems out of character for how I perceived her to be. Congrats to Ragged on guessing the right year! We moved into that house summer of 1972. Based on the new plants and I can tell that it was winter/early spring, that would make it anywhere between Dec 72 - Apr 73. I was 4 1/2 years old. Thanks to all for joining me down memory lane.
I musta been grumpy or something. both photos i'm sporting a little attitude.
