I can remember when my Mom gave me my first apron as though it was only yesterday. (My Mom made it as she loved to sew.) It was pink and had girlie designs with bows and such all over it. There was some lace down the front and so fancy. I didn't want to get it dirty.

My Mom told me I could wear it when we were busy in the kitchen. It made me feel older and more responsible wearing it as well. None of my friends had and apron. Their Moms didn't want them in the way. I knew I was luckier then!

When my Mom would cook or bake I was right there. I always liked doing everything with her. We made cakes and cookies. I preferred to make cookies at that time. The Nestle semisweet chocolate chip cookies were my favorite.

As I got older I was able to read the recipes and bake on my own. Knowing that my Dad's favorite was peanut butter cookies; I liked to make them for him. He'd always say how good they were.

My Mom always had us help out in the kitchen (I had 7 sisters) but baking was always the fun part. When I had children of my own I had only sons but I insisted that they llearn at least some basic cooking techniques. They both always loved to help me with my holiday baking - Nestle Tollhouse cookies being one of their favorites (and yes, they each wore their own aprons minus the lace and bows).

Aprons from heaven...Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother all made sure I had aprons, as they liked to sew, as well as bake. The first one was at 3 years old, and it was great.

At Christmastime I made aprons with holiday designs on them and sent them along with other cooking items. My youngest granddaughter, Meghan loves to help in the kitchen with cooking and still has the apron although is is sentimentally kept not used anymore since it is too small.

I got my first apron when I was in high school for cooking classes at the time.

Nice story of your Mom. I haven't every really been fond of aprons, how sad. I have always used dish cloths slung over my shoulder.

I've never owned an apron but have learned that working in the kitchen at a church dinner almost REQUIRES one. 
I'm working fast and hard in a Sunday dress - I NEED the big, long one that was given to me.

I don't think I ever had an apron.  I just knew I was not going to be messy?  HAH!  I change into old clothes when I cook!
They always come clean.

Libby H.  -Such a nice story and memory. 

I have aprons, but don't wear them.

I had two sons and they both helped in the kitchen from when they were young, especially making cookies and cakes, etc. for the holidays.  The last two years my youngest son made the cookies because I needed knee replacements and my husband has MS.  They were delicious.  When told that, he replied that he learned from the Best!!!

I am sponsoring 4-H cooking class for our county fair and this year I want to give the top winners all aprons.  I have always wore a apron when I cook.  My grandmother always had one on and I took after her.  I have several different kinds and I use my holiday one for the holidays.  Eveny my daughter uses one too.  I made several last year for christmas and also give them for hostess gifts when I am invited for meals.  They make great wedding shower gifts.  Both for men and women.
