Princess A loves dressing up. She would wear a ball gown and tiara every day if she could. She wants to be a fashion designer when she grows up. She’s really creative and bold. She likes to put together outfits and come up with new combinations.
On Saturday it was cold, rainy and windy all day. We had a fire burning from the time we got up until we went to bed that night. In the afternoon, we decided to make a trip to the public library. Everyone wanted new books and we wanted to check out the new library in town.
Both girls were wearing “around the house” clothes. Nothing warm enough for going outside on a cold day. Princess A was wearing her favorite dress. It’s a handmade, Hawaiian dress with a halter top and an open back. It’s really cute, but not exactly warm. I told them that we were leaving soon and asked them to get changed and “put on pants”. A few minutes later, they came out of their room and said that they were ready to go.
Princess E had put on pants, a long sleeve t-shirt, furry boots and her hat. All black. She likes all black. Okay, I can deal with all black.
Then, Princess A walks out and I start to say something… but she says “I put on pants”. She’s right. She did put on pants…. under the same dress and then put a shirt over the top of dress. Oh, and don’t forget the tiara!
She was the most creatively dressed kid at the library.
Have a great (short) work week!
