Yesterday, we did some spring cleaning, including going through Katrina's clothes and getting rid of what didn't fit. In one of the drawers, Katrina found a dress that I had put away, oh, about a year ago, when spring turned into summer.
"Look, Mama!! I love this dress! It's my favorite!!"
"But, sweetie, it's a size 5. You're a size 6 now. I don't think it will fit."
"It fits, Mama, see? Can I wear it today? Can I?"
"If you really want to, but it's hot today. I think you'll get hot in it."
"No, Mama, I'm cold. I want to wear it."
(By the way, Katrina pulled this dress off the clearance rack at the BX last year, so I think it is her first non-parent-guided clothing choice.)
Jon says he doesn't understand why I don't like this outfit. He thinks it's cute. I suppose it would have been cute in 1985 at the Deb Shop. And of course, for 4-year-old girls who love both pink and sequins.
