Lainey had Spring Picture Day at Preschool last week. She asked if I would curl her hair...it's days like this that it's a little extra fun to have a girly-girl. We hadn't actually done this before. Usually if she sees me doing my hair (like once every 2 months;) She'll ask for a few curls in hers. But, this day she sat completely still for 25 minutes while I did her entire head.
Can you believe her hair??
Then she got dressed. Have I mentioned that she will ONLY wear dresses, skirts, leggings or tights and cardigans?? Well, it's true. She comes up with her own combinations which usually include various prints and colors. Sometimes she matches, sometimes. I have learned that the best way to get her to wear something for a "special day" is to get her a new outfit. Believe me, I don't always do this. This time I got lucky cause I had found a few things on clearance and stashed um away for her birthday next month. BUT, I thought it'd be cute for spring pics and save me the struggle of will. I shouldn't care, but I do.
These are the things that make a successful outfit in Lainey's Lingo:
A Pretty Skirt ($2 old navy), check! Fun Tights ($2.99 target), Check! Beautiful Ruffle Tee (old), check! and Sweater ($15 target) ok, I splurged on that one, but it's such a pretty color on her AND it's big so it should last through Fall and Bridget:) Like my justification??
I mean, really? This girl kills me.
Okay, funny story.
I was looking at Pinterest the other day, have you heard of it?? ha! Well, Lainey saw these Fruit Kabobs and was like, "We can make those!" She ran to the fridge and dug out all the fruit she could find. I cut stuff and she assembled (we only had toothpicks). She wanted me to help, so I did. What does she say???
"Mom, you are doing the pattern wrong! It goes grape, orange, apple, plum, then grape!"
Who notices that? THIS GIRL:
Not bad for a kid, right?
It was a nice lazy weekend of forts, headstands, dance parties and trips to the YMCA.
I just love my days at home with the girls (for the most part;)
