    My First holy communion was horrible! I was 13 at the time in 1962 and it had been put off for various reasons,so at 13 i was in the class with the 7 and 8 year olds.Our required communion outfits consisted of the poofy,above the knees,short sleeve dress with the matching veil,lace anklets and the white ‘mary jane’ shoes.Our parish considered the communion dress as an extension of our baptism gown,so all of us girls had to wear a cloth diaper and toddler size rubberpants under our dress to represent our baptismal purity.My diaper was made from sewing baby diapers together into one,and it had to be pinned on us with diaper pins and we all had the Playtex toddler-extra large size rubberpants over it.Being 13,i thought it wasnt fair that i had to wear them also.it was weird walking down the aisle and feeling the cloth diaper and rubberpants under my dress and it was warm that sunday morning in May and i was staring to sweat! The next problem was the elastic leg openings on the rubberpants were starting to dig into my leg joints and causing me a little irratation! After we got home,i went to my room and took the rubberpants and diaper off and was so relieved to be rid of the irratation!
