embracing girly-ness

Oh goodness.
Can I tell you how I generally avoid these kinds of parties.
I'm not super into dressing up girls like little adults..at all.
But my littlest was invited to a place called Olivia's Dollhouse for a tea party.
And so we headed out in the pouring rain for some one on one time.
She very carefully chose her dress.
And so adoringly sat there to have her hair and make up done.
And then she decided that Mommy should dress up too.
Again, my first thought was oh no.  I don't need to dress up.
But she said, "Mommy please???" in that sweet little voice of hers
that I know will fade away all too soon.
And so I let her pick me a dress.
It was actually quite cute.
I was having serious prom flashbacks.
And do you know, I actually had a lot of fun.
