Easter Dresses

My daughters have become little divas when it comes to their wardrobe. My wonderful mother enjoys buying their Easter and Christmas dresses every year. She always buys exceptionally lovely dresses. Well, the problem is that our church has become so casual that my girls want to wear jeans or some sort of casual outfits on these special holidays. I'm sorry but that's where I draw the line. What happened to a young girl's love of the Easter bonnet, white patent leather shoes, and white stockings or white socks with lace? I miss those days. Anyway, they did wear their Easter dresses. Katie, the youngest, doesn't have a problem with it like my oldest, Kylie. She seems to be too worried about what everyone else will think when she is, as she puts it, "too dressed up." I say, "Take advantage of the chance to dress up. You only get to do it twice a year." She and I don't see eye-to-eye on a lot of her clothing choices. She says that I have no style. I say, EXCUSE ME! I am the most fashionable person you know, girl. I always get compliments on my wardrobe. I have style; I have flair, just like "The Nanny." So, now begins the shopping dramas of she and I trying to agree on outfits. I mean, come on, this child wants to wear black, white, and read with skulls, black fingernail polish, and asked me if she could dye her hair black. Um, who are you, child? You're only 10, but you're acting like a teenager. PLEASE BE A STAGE THAT YOU'LL GROW OUT OF! PLEASE FALL IN LOVE WITH PASTELS AND PRETTY OUTFITS AGAIN! I'm not saying dress like a baby again, just a sweet, little 10-year-old. I love you punkin', even if you have crazy thoughts on fashion. You know, I am the mommy and I'm always right!

I think they look beautiful.

Ashlie dresses up more when we're not at church than when we are. What's up with that? lol Of course I remember wanting to fit in too.
At least my kids are not to the stage where they're embarrassed to be seen with me. That will be a sad day indeed.

Oh, thanks for adding me!

I went with the kids egg hunting. Katie was so cute going up and down the stairs holding up her skirt. I told her she'd have to work that dress to get up and down - lol!

They're darling, but Iunderstand about the style issue. Let's just not go there. I can't beleive they're so old. (eye rolling)

LOL, my girls are the opposite. They're begging to wear dresses and skirts all the time, not just to church. I have the feeling that may change as they get older though. :)
