Sunday was one of those lazy days around our house. You know the ones where you look at the clock and it is lunchtime and you are all still wandering around in your pj’s. I live for those days, but we only get them once in a while.
Around 2pm, Pat went outside to do some yardwork. It was gorgeous…sunny with a cool breeze. It almost felt like fall. Sarah and I ventured up to her room and she said she wanted to get dressed, so I started for her closet and she said, “No Mommy, let me pick” I was in no mood to fight, so I said fine…..we are not going anywhere so pick what you want.
Doesn’t she go in and pull out this black, kind of fancy, skirt. Everytime I look at it, I think of Madonna in the early days!! This skirt has been in her closet for almost a year…..Pat’s Mom volunteers at a thrift store and got it thinking Sarah might be able to wear it around the holidays, but it didn’t fit and it has been hanging there ever since.
As soon as she slipped it on, I could envision the rest of the outfit……so I grabbed her two shirts to create the layered look and asked her if she wanted to go into my closet to accessorize!!! She was all over that and made a mad dash for my room where we found the hat and the necklace!! Having a little girl to play dress up with is so much fun…..sometimes I wonder who likes it more….her or me:)
Almost forgot the most important accessory….she brought along an old cell phone that no longer works. We just bought Nick his first REAL cell phone, so Sarah wanted one too……..this fake one is as close as she is going to get for a LONG TIME!!!
Are we in trouble or what??
I guess there is no need for me to worry about how she will handle no longer being the baby of this family. It looks as though she would prefer to skip her 3rd Birthday and go straight to her 13th!!
