Musings on the life redeemed & purpose redefined

fabulous four March 4, 2012

Filed under: Milestones,Stuff — dayna @ 11:55 pm

The other morning my four-year-old took me by the hand and pulled me into her room. She wanted to show me what she would be wearing to play in our backyard that day. Here’s what I saw:

A little later, she actually rocked the outfit. The only thing I can take credit for is the clumsy ponytail.

Her attire held up quite nicely to all of the day’s activities. The Jolie-esque lips are courtesy of a concrete faceplant the day before. The girl is tougher than she looks.

I only hope she is tough enough to allow nothing in this world (including her mother) to diminish that creativity and confidence.

  1. Ohmygosh, the outfit is awesome! It’s like one of those style guides that are all over Pinterest. 🙂 She has way more fashion than me, that’s for sure!

      She schools me in style daily! I continue to be amazed that she is who she is- in spite of me. Pretty sure she came out accessorized;-)

    Was that a living plant she was watering ?

      Yes, mom! Believe it or not, it is a rose bush that was a gift from Kel’s co-workers. We’ve managed to keep it alive for at least 2 months now;-) The girls don’t add sandbox sand to the plants as much anymore… Look out herb and vegetable garden, here we come!

    I love how she so delicately placed the flower over the sleeve of her chosen outfit. Quite the little fashionista you’ve got there, mama!
