First, in fashion news, we pulled out Waverly Maye’s cat ears over the weekend & I am in love!! We had a couple last year but recently added this set from Target, the fact that they are leopard makes them that much cuter. Another reason to love fall fashion, especially for little ones since they obviously look so much better in this stuff than any of us ever would. 😉
And onto my little thing of the week!! This one goes down in the books as one of my favorites ever, I’ll be laughing about it for a long time. Waverly & I had a rare mall date a couple days ago, I say rare because most of my shopping is now done online since stores (especially ones with hangers & clothes to pull down) aren’t always the easiest. I decided to give it a try, we got some lunch plus walked around for a bit, Waverly was actually being a rock star & we were having way too much fun. Our car was parked outside of Forever 21 & as we were walking out to leave, Waverly grabs on to one particular shirt that she immediately fell in love with (not her size, not even close, our Forever doesn’t sell kids clothes.) For whatever reason, she would not stop saying how “cute!” it was, so I let her go try it on because yes, I’m that mom who got way too excited about my daughter’s love of fashion. At age two.
In the fitting room, she threw it right on & pranced out of the room wearing her shirt (turned maxi dress), showing everyone who would look. It was the cutest thing, until she realized that she didn’t get to wear it out of the store (don’t we wish that was how it worked!). It was a mini-tantrum turned into one of those teachable mom moments where I had to explain to her how shopping works. Melt my heart.
Fast forward to later that afternoon, when Waverly insisted on wearing her new shirt (turned maxi dress) down the street to walk her babies. Because yes, I am also that mom who bought it for her because she loved it that much. She held it in her lap the entire drive home & wore it all night, I’m thinking it will really fit her in approximately 15 years.
