I was looking for a dress for Buzz to wear for her Birthday when I came across this..and instantly fell in love. Picked it up..payed for it..came home all smiles.
Everyone loved the dress but thought it was too informal for the first birthday 😦
Outnumbered and out voted..my hunt for a dress continued but I was secretly hoping that I would not find anything else and Buzz gets to hear this. One day when alone with Buzz I tried this dress on her. And all my dreams of her wearing this dress on her birthday came crashing down. It was too big for her. Hence started the hunt for her birthday dress in earnest.
Since then, I keep opening Buzz’s closet to look at this dress over and over again. Finally last week I tried the dress on her again (for the 10th time if not more) and it fit. My enthusiasm was beyond words as I got her all dressed for daycare. If you have not figured it out yet, the pockets are what makes the dress as cute as it is. And Buzz could not stop touching them..playing with them..put her hands in them. Her joy made me all the more happy.
We finally got to her daycare..where she was admired by all the adults while I glowed with maternal pride 😀
Till..till I let her down to make my way out of her class. She was instantly surrounded by all the other kids of her class..with everyone trying to touch her watermelon pockets. Little Buzz did not like that AT ALL. I could hear her screams all the way out the door. I am told that went on..on and off throughout the day. With kids trying to get close to her to get a hand in her pocket and she running away from everyone screaming.
But as traumatic as this was for her.. all the adults smiled through all of it. And now..today I can’t wait to put her back in this dress.
Rain rain go away..come back another day..
PS: I don’t have to worry about boys chasing her just yet do I??
