The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water


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?

  1. Thanks BreezyK! With so much support of the hats I have one on both the girls now. Like MY mom used to say, “they’ll learn to like ’em”. Plus it gets me out of trying to out smart the girls on keeping bows and headbands in their hair when we travel. Thanks for dropping by!

  2. haha great post! The rain boots are both protective footwear AND a fashion statement- and a bold one at that! And kids DO wear those hats and love them! My niece has a monkey one. Good luck 🙂

  3. LMAO Annie Priceless. The hat was for me! And the rest is VERY helpful! Have a great New Year!

  4. Okay, I am a fashionista. I can totally answer all your questions. Although, you probably don’t really want my help. LOL

    My 13 year old princess has almost every one of those things. Awesome items, by the way.

    Wear the clogs while running errands. (not you, your daughter)
    Wear the rain boots in the rain. (again, I mean your daughter)
    The animal hats are hugely popular – wear them any time, any place. Totally appropriate with shorts even, according to my teen. I’m actually shocked by how much the junior high/high school girls love these things.
    The boat shoes will look good with anything in the pastel family. Super cute.

    And I suggest letting the dog wear the grinch hat. LOL

    Fun post! 🙂

  5. We do have a costume ‘box’ right now in the play room filled with Tinker Bell and Dora outfits plus a medley of various purses and dress up shoes. But they are fast outgrowing it. So I’ll need a room, huh? We may need a bigger house.

    Thanks for dropping by Susie! Happy New Year to you and your crew too!

  6. Do you have a costume box???? Hahaha! I started one many years ago and it has grown into a room in our unfinished basement.
    Happy New Year!

I would love to hear from you...
