Our little Miss is equal parts girlie-girl, and tomboy (or tom girl, as she calls it). She is growing up so quickly, we almost see a change in her every morning when she wakes up. It makes me excited for all the experiences she has ahead her, but a little weepy that my days of being able to carry her are numbered. #oldback
She’s the flower girl in my sister’s wedding this Summer (in Montana…can’t wait for that!!), and I know Mr. SP and I will be blubbering messes watching her walk down the aisle. But while she’s super excited for the wedding, she’s not thrilled about all the dresses I’ve made her try on for the different events coming up.
To make the experience more pleasant for
me her, I ordered several options from Nordstrom (my go-to for kid’s special occasion clothes), so she could try them on at home. We found a few winners, and the rest I’ll ship back using their free returns. To celebrate, I bribed her let her dictate our afternoon activity…she chose a train ride to her favorite little breakfast spot, and insisted we wear our new dresses.
We’ve taken the train on several occasions, but this time I taught her how to read the map and buy her ticket.
I dread the day she stops slipping her little hand in mine.
The horse tights and leopard flats were her touch…wonder where she gets that?!
Thanks to your encouragement, I ordered this one-shoulder dress when it went on sale last week. Surprisingly, it holds everything in nicely, and is really comfortable. The color is lovely, too…and just so happens to be my sister’s wedding color accent! It comes in 21 other colors (find them here)...and here’s a two-strap version if you prefer.
We were certainly the best-dressed gals in the diner, but we had a fun time, and our little flower girl is ready for her big dress (I think it’s going to be this one)! Have your kids been in weddings? How did you ease their nerves…and yours?!
