She wanted 3 rows of sequin-ribbon: purple, pink and red. I had to stop after purple, I thought these pants were sparkly enough! Plus, she probably won't wear them much anyway, she loves her velour pants too much!
Viola's daycare doesn't allow dresses :-( It's a safety-issue, the children climb trees, and dresses get caught on the branches :-( So...what is a girl to do? Viola is into princess-glittery-sparkly-dresses, of course she is, she's turning 4! I have been making her some new pants, for these she chose the fabrics for the pockets, and the sequin-ribbon embellishments.
This saturday was cleaning-day at her daycare, I went and Charles stayed home with the kids. We were both totally beat that night, he's not used to having the kids a full day, and I'm not used to working away from home -unless it's school.
Charles and the children bought me this scale, I love it, it's hanging in the kitchen. My parents had one of these when I was growing up. They don't make them anymore, so Charles was lucky to find this used :-)
Yesterday Viola and I spent the day together, she had a dentist-appointment in the morning -she did so well, wasn't scared at all, and made her mom very proud!
Afterwards we went to the zoo. It was so wonderful to have a day just the two of us. I miss that, must make it a priority to do that more often.
