First, thank you all for your thoughts on Waverly's napping situation!! Sometimes the best thing a mama can hear (even better than advice) is that she is not alone, and this community is so great about that. We have decided to try to drop her nap for the most part, but of course as soon I made that decision she fell asleep on the couch at 3pm yesterday. ;) I bribed her to get up with ice cream, and bedtime went waaaay smoother last night. Yay! And can we all agree that we would like to turn the tables & have our little ones tuck us in to nap every afternoon? Funny how that works.
In other news, I'm really excited to start a new series on the blog for the new year, Fashion Fridays!! Most of you know that I was a fashion major in college & love, love all things style, I've actually been even more inspired by fashion since starting this blog. So I thought it would be fun to highlight some favorites at the end of each week, mostly for the girls! This Friday I'm kicking off the series with the most adorable shop, Olive & Birdie.
We are so in love with these big & little sister shirts, you know how I feel about gold and I love any opportunity to match the girls. They would be perfect for a new big sister/big brother to wear coming to the hospital to meet a baby for the first time! They also have tons of adorable options right now for Valentines Day, including these leggings with the cutest heart leg patches.
The biggest thank you to Christina for sending these to the girls, we love supporting fellow moms & always shop small when we can! :) If you have an Etsy shop or small business and would like to work together on a future Fashion Friday, please email me at email@example.com.
And lastly, before I sign off for the weekend, this story because I can't wait to tell Waverly Maye all. about.it one day. I was getting her ready for school this week, which is always a circus since we have to get everyone ready & out of the house early. I did her hair in pigtail buns (again, always a circus, she HATES getting her hair done, please tell me your toddler feels the same way). And this is when the biggest epic meltdown ever started. EVER. Because I didn't do her hair in a braid "like Elsa, and I AM ELSA! ELSA! I'M NOT ANNA! I'M ELSA". There were tears on tears on tears, it was easily the most upset I've seen her in months. I took about 500 deep breaths and tried to work through it, we were already late and the last thing I wanted to do was make us later for an Elsa braid. Yet I'm sure you can guess what happened. Girlfriend got her Elsa hair and I was the asshole parent who showed up late to school.
Waverly - 1, Mom - 0. It's not always roses and butterflies over here, but always entertaining. :)
HAPPY weekend, friends!
