Who knew? I mean really! There was a time when this little blondie wouldn’t wear a dress or a skirt. She eschewed pink sparkly Mary Janes, ruffles didn’t do it for her. She loved pajamas and red rubber lady bug boots, lime green clogs or sometimes when it was hot outside, she insisted that her tan suede Uggs were exactly and the only thing she wanted to wear on her feet. Her blonde hair and angelic smile were antithetical to her garb. She was not to be deterred; You couldn’t convince her to wear sandals, bribes didn’t work and logic was certainly out of the question.
This little granddaughter of mine knows exactly what she wants; I mailed two bead bracelets to the girls earlier this year, one was pink and white and the other was pink and purple because little Miss had previously informed me that purple was her favorite color. Apparently that didn’t hold true for everything and since her bracelet was not exactly like her sister’s, she didn’t want it. When I asked her if she liked it, she bluntly told me “NO”. So I pushed back a little more and inquired if she ever wore it. I was quickly informed that she gave it to the Nanny! I mean, seriously??!!
A couple of weeks ago I sent a bright yellow and pink floral sun dress to each of the girls (matching) and WOW! Was I ever surprised to learn that she wanted to put the dress on right away. That was 2 weeks ago…. What follows is a pictorial diary. Not every day is recorded in photos, however, I have it from the horse’s mouth (Mommy) that this is what she has worn every single day since it arrived. Rest assured, it is getting washed in the evening. Is it obsession or just a case of a girl knows what she wants. I LOVE IT – I finally gave her something she really likes. I’m very happy that she is enjoying it so much although I admit if left up to me, she would never get away with this – BUT then again I never had a middle child or one that was only two years younger than the first, so indulgence only goes so far with me.
Be that as it may, let me say again that these photos not only bring a smile to my face, they warm my heart because she looks so darn cute!!
