As the year draws to a close and we put the year’s events in the rearview mirror, my year ends with a dark and bleak finale.
My back-ups are gone! Aunt Sue and Uncle John went home this morning. It was sad. The girls were both so sad to see them go but none were sadder than dad. Although I did not cry like some of them.
So I need some help here! I need a babysitter for this weekend and next Friday! Can anybody help me out? But it doesn’t stop there….
I grew up with a t-shirt, sneakers and jeans mentality. I have nooo sense of fashion. I have matured into polo shirts and dockers. So I have a hard time making these Princesses look like the royalty they are. These girls are blessed with so many clothes from family and friends that they don’t have to wear the same outfit to church twice. I heard that was a big deal if you were a girl! Yet, I still need Mom’s help in getting them ready.
This year for Christmas the girls got some fabulous outfits again! Yet a few of these clothes I have no idea on how to use them. Can you help me out with this please?
First are these red clogs for my 3 year old. I have to say I really like these (which is unsettling in itself) but how or wear would she wear these? Not to church. Not to play outside. When would these be appropriate? I need some guidance because I really want to see her in these.
Next take a look at these boots. Super cute I suppose but are they a fashion statement or protective footwear for when it rains?
And then these hats. I understand these hats are really popular in the northeast (wear the gift bearers came from). They must be because each girl received 2 hats. But are you kidding me? Do kids actually wear these?
Even as a kid, the other kids would wanna point and laugh I thought. Then my oldest put the hat on and it had an almost ‘drug-like’ effect on her. See for yourself….
Crazy! I am glad they are padded well. They will keep the girls warm the 3 weeks of cold weather we get here!
On the other hand, these boat shoes are very appropriate for our coastal area. They are very cute! But what color scheme do I match with these? Help please?
Then there is this ‘Max-the-dog’ hat from the ‘Grinch’ movie that someone with enough insight saw fit to get yours truly. HMPH! If I wore that out in public the authorities would take my kids from me!
So what should I do? Do you have any ideas or suggestions for any of these gifts? If so, please comment with them. Your ideas are better than mine! Its not like I am not grateful for these gifts. I just wasn’t raised with enough fashion sense to make use of them. Help?
