Babystar hates dresses. Last Sunday, she looked SO CUTE for her dedication at church but the behind-the-scenes was hilarious. Luckily we put on the leggings first (it was cold) because once we put this super cute dress on her body she was like WHAT.IS.THIS.CRAP.
(Usually she wears non-fancy clothes and plays in the nursery when she goes to church with her dad while I stay home in bed like a
proper heathen tired mama who needs her break.)
So Babystar is all like WHAT is with all of this fabric and WHY is there fluffy stuff on my shoulders and I HATE IT.
But then the Genius Teenager came into Babystar’s bedroom in a dress and pointed out that SHE was wearing a dress and MAMA was wearing a dress and BABYSTAR was wearing a dress. Then she scooped that baby up and dragged us both to her full length mirror to show us that BABYSTAR had stars on her dress and it was SO PRETTY and Mama had stars on her dress and we were all SO PRETTY. Babystar got on board after that. The Teenager is a rock star.
And all morning the tiny one pointed at her silver stars saying ‘tar? ‘tar? ‘tar? I guess she didn’t notice the giant stars on her knees.
The leggings and dress were from Gymboree (40% off but that store is forever having a sale) for $37.46. And the leggings are really just thick knitted pants so I suspect we will wear them all winter. And look, now I already bought her Christmas dress. (If it still fits.)
Plus some boring stuff: diapers and wipes and October’s baby food. (This is food that I buy especially for her. I share some of it, like mostly the eggs but other stuff too and she shares my food but mostly spoonfuls of veggies or a few bites of fish or things that I would have bought and eaten anyway, if she didn’t. I think it works out, for now.)
