So, apparently Lovegirl has been watching some cartoon/TV program at the sitter’s where a ballerina is the prominent character. All she ever talks about is being a “ballerella”, wearing pink, and wearing dresses.
I don’t know how much of my character/personality comes through in my writing, but just in case it’s not quite enough . . . I’m not a girly-girl. I only recently incorporated the color pink into my wardrobe – one blouse. I don’t wear skirts/dresses if I can help it. Once we move outside of lipgloss, makeup is a true mystery. So to have this little creature in my life, who is currently obsessed with all things girly, and pink, and floaty is quite a trip! She’s already quite concerned with her hair. She actually wants me to comb her hair every night. What two year old requests hair combing sessions? She prefers her pink Pumas (I just could not resist – they are sooo cute) to her brown t-straps, and has recently asked me for a purse in which to tote around her Minnie and Mickey Mice and her notebook (I really, really, wish I could read “two year old.” I’m dying to know what she’s written in that thing!) Where did this kid come from?
Here are the two ballerella dresses (she thinks any dress is a ballerella dress) I picked up for her from Old Navy. She is so stinkin’ cute in them – I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so she can acutally wear them.
Oh, on a completely unrelated, related note: Do you all dress your children in Old Navy? I read a lot of blogs, and quite a few of the moms completely diss Old Navy. I don’t get it. The clothes are reasonably priced, trendy (if you’re into that kind of thing) and they wear well. A lot of the moms think the exact opposite. I’d say 95% of Lovegirl’s wardrobe is from either Old Navy or Target. Is it just me? I just can’t see spending too much of my hard earned $$$ on clothes for her to play in/rapidly outgrow.
And now, in a complete contradiction of myself. Look what I bought yesterday:
Cute no? I really don’t usually wear dresses. I don’t like the way most look and/or fit. Too short, too tight, too something. But this dress is perfect – nice colors, nice fit, nice price, nice length. It will probably be worn to shreds this summer.
Have a great – and fashionable – day!
