Don't say anything to Calli - but I think I have successfully separated her from her house dress. This is ALL she would wear around the house for the last 3 months. Within 60 seconds of walking in the door her shoes, socks, and clothing are off and the little blue dress in on. If it's in the wash she asks every 5 minutes, "is it clean yet?"And if she's playing outside there might be an entire outfit layered on top of this dress. Just like her mom, and her mom before her, she likes to be comfortable! Two weeks ago I mentioned it may be getting too old and I'd have to get rid of it. She cried in her bed for 30 minutes. Oops. My bad.
But this weekend I purchased some new things and got a few things out of the hand-me-down bin as I quietly hid the stretched out blue dress with it's marker streaks and holes. She is embracing her love for fashion this week and wearing real clothes ALL DAY! I know this little blue dress shouldn't drive me crazy but it kind of did. I'm proud I kept cool for 3 months and now I want it to be over!
I may need to give credit to the 3 Barbie movies she rented from the Library. She walks around saying things like, "oh yeah, I'm a fashion rock star." In Del Taco, "He's got purple hair, he's a rock star!".
Calli before ballet class.
Keep rocking it girl!
