Here is where I point out that I took the girls to an actual department store to pick out some fancy dresses. We're taking the kids to New York next week and I figured they should have something nice that actually fits. I've always just ordered their clothes online due to my religion, the Church of the Agoraphobic. Letting them pick out any dress they wanted was actually a great experience for all three of us. It reminded me that having girls can be so good. Grace wears dresses all the time, so picking out a new dress was a piece of cake for her. Olivia wears a dress about once a year, and only when forced and bribed for a photo or wedding. Also, shopping for clothes or shoes with her is a total nightmare. She doesn't like seams or tags or things to be too loose. Or too tight. Or too scratchy. Or with buttons on the shirts. Or anything that chokes her, like crewnecks or turtlenecks, but it can't be too low of a v-neck, because she might feel cold. So, when she found one right away that she fell in love with, I was ecstatic. The dresses they picked out reflect their personalities so much. I would like to add that Grace needed silver sparkle tights and shiny boots to "create the look she was going for". Those were her exact words.
