layers are "in"

a couple weeks ago, isla gets out of the tub and disappears. this is not unusual since she knows i will be bathing macrae, she goes into her room to dress herself and play. however, on this particular day she emerged from her room wearing all the clothes in her drawer. well, almost. she was wearing 5 shirts, pants and a skirt. i could NOT pursuade her to take any clothes off. she was proud of her choice in clothing. so, i let it be. this went on for a few days.... then there was the day we went to the mall with my mom. she was layered in a couple shirts, a dress, and pants. hey, at least they all came from the same "line" at gymboree...so, it matched. but my mom asked me why i let her dress homeless. homeless? she's was wearing all gymboree...

after a week of this "layering thing" i noticed her drawers were always empty and her clothes were piled up in the laundry basket. so, i found some new ways of pursuading her to take a few articles off before we would leave the house. okay, and i realize this is MY fault! i layer all the time...it's in style...

well, today, she dresses herself in just two layers. and as she is asking me to button up the shirt on top, she says to me, "mom, i will wear this shirt and it will be awesome!"

look what i have created... ...very awesome!

Very awesome!!!

One morning after I had bought Kelli a bunch of new socks she put every single one of them on the SAME foot. She liked it cause it looked like a cast!

"Theres's my best friend!" that's what mimi said just now looking over my shoulder as I read this!

I love her outfit! (I wish mine would coordinate that well) Can she come over and teach meredith how to dress>?

(actually last time she was here, she spent the whole time stripped down to her panties.)
